Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration Implementing Job Creation Initiatives
Hagåtña, Guam – The Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration announces job creation initiatives with the availability of pre-apprenticeship opportunities in the local telecommunications industry. The Guam Department of Labor (GDOL) is actively recruiting participants for the Pre-Apprenticeship Program to prepare individuals to enter and succeed in an apprenticeship program, and provide local employers the opportunity to build a qualified workforce.
“Our administration continues to capture every opportunity to provide the people of Guam the support they need on the road to recovery,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “Telecommunications is an industry we hope to build up as our island attracts digital connectivity investments from global companies. Strengthening our digital infrastructure is one step, but developing the local workforce that will grow this industry is essential to our success.”
“Through pre-apprenticeship programs, our people have the chance to grow their skill sets and secure gainful employment,” said Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio. “We encourage everyone wanting to return to the workforce to apply for this program by registering with the American Job Center at hireguam.com or scheduling an appointment by calling them at (671) 475-7000/7001.”
