Tindahan ni Bossing (TINBO), the one-stop gateway for digital services created by PLDT Global Corporation’s retail arm, has supported the “Trabaho sa Ibayong Dagat, Handog ng Tahanan ng OFW” Jobs Fair organized by the Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) on Labor Day. PLDT Global is the international unit of the country’s leading digital services provider PLDT Inc.
Held at the Blas F. Ople Building in Mandaluyong City, the job fair gathered 32 licensed recruitment firms with over 15,000 job opportunities overseas, including work for construction workers, engineers, healthcare workers, restaurant workers, and seafarers.
“We are honored to be part of this initiative by the DMW. As part of our commitment to support Filipinos everywhere with access to digital services, PLDT Global’s TINBO is here to provide our overseas kababayans with the technology and services that can help them care for their families back home,” said Albert V. Villa-Real, President and CEO at PLDT Global.
Customers can register via tinbo.ph to get a Smart Virtual Number (SVN), that serves as their Philippine mobile number whenever they are outside the country.
Through PLDT Global’s partnership with DMW, customers can also use their SVNs as their registered number in the DMW, which enables the agency to provide updates on their Overseas Employment Certificate application, as well as important government announcements while overseas.
Their SVN — powered by Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart), PLDT Inc.’s wireless unit – also allows TINBO users to receive calls and texts at local rates (Smart to Smart) without a physical SIM, including one-time passwords (OTPs), for secure payment transactions.
With TINBO, overseas Filipinos can buy load, data packs, even gaming PINs for their families in the Philippines. They can also conveniently pay their Philippine billers, access digital banking needs via Maya, and enjoy other digital services.
