  2. Any of the following documents, as applicable:
    a). Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Registration (for partnership or corporation);

Q: Where can we submit the documentary requirements for accreditation?

A: Documentary requirements must be submitted online using the document submission facility during the registration of company's information.

Q: Why should I submit an “Authority to Represent"?

A: For the purpose of proper identification of legitimate company’s representative and prevent false claim, you are required to submit an “Authority to Represent” signed by the company’s authorized signatory.

Q: Our company has been accredited from the old version of Phil-JobNet. Do we need to re-submit the required documents for accreditation?

A: No. Records from the old Phil-JobNet version were migrated to the enhanced version. However, if the establishment’s TIN is found to be erroneous, the establishment’s authorized representatives are required to submit the BIR Form 2303 for verifi cation.

Q: The PhilJobNet system displays “Establishment with matching TIN already exists. What shall I do?

A: In case record of establishment already exists in the database, the establishment’s authorized representative may proceed to the next step which is the “Establishment Contact.” Select “Establishment Contact” from the “Establishment” top navigation menu.

Q: How can I post job vacancies?

A: To avail the free job posting service and view prospective candidates’ profi le, click the “Vacancy Posting” under the “Vacancy” sub-menu of “Establishment” top navigation menu. Select “Encode new vacancy” from the “Select Activity” page then click the “Submit” button. In case these menus are not available, you possibly do not have the accredited establishment represented and approved establishment associated. You may visit or contact the nearest DOLE Regional/Field Offi ce.

Q: I’m a representative of an establishment, how can I exclude my profi le in job matches?

A: Log-in to the E-PJN website using your registered e-mail address and password. Select “Personal Settings” under the “Profi le” top navigation menu to display the General Settings page. At the left navigation menu, click the “As Applicant” tab to view available settings. Uncheck the tick box that corresponds to “Include me in job matches” and “Send job offers via email” then click the Save button. This will temporarily hide the “Job Applicant” top navigation menu.
