How do I begin my application at IPAMS?

IPAMS provides a list of vacant positions and to view this list, click the JOB LEADS tab. If interested and qualified for any listed position, register and apply online in the APPLICANTS page. Watch this quick tutorial on how to apply online. Effective July 2011, every applicant must register online and copy/paste their resume, or upload resume in MS Word format online. If you meet the criteria of the position you are applying for, on the basis of our preliminary evaluation, you will initially receive a notification either via email, sms, or telephone call for further assessment, short-listing or final interview. Otherwise, follow-ups will not be necessary. Ensure completeness in your resume and provide all the details of your work experience. This means you must input your complete job task/description per job position title that you hold in all your work experience. This is important in order for us to assess your qualifications for the position you are applying for. The strength of your resume is highly dependent on the details that you input in the job titles you hold.

Can I apply for several vacant positions since I think I qualify for different positions?

Our database system will recognize up to two (2) applications per candidate; however, your qualifications will still be evaluated and matched for other vacancies. If you still wish to apply for another position, or to make revision, or to update your resume, simply go to the APPLICANTS page, and log in using your email and password.

What are the documents required to support my application?

You will need to copy/paste your complete resume in MS Word format when you apply online or upload it, paste a scanned 2x2 colored photograph with white background, and if possible, a scanned copy of the biographic page of your passport.

If you are called in to report to the IPAMS office, you must bring with you the following:

  1. Your printed application form to bring to IPAMS for our Recruitment Officers to verify.
  2. Hard copy of the biographic page of your passport (passport should be valid for at least 2 years from the anticipated date of deployment)
  3. Educational certificates (diploma, transcript of records, PRC certificate and valid PRC license for professionals, as applicable)
  4. Training certificates, if any
  5. Employment certificates from previous employers
  6. NBI clearance, if available
  7. No Objection Certificate (NOC) or Letter of No Objection (LONO) - may be required if you are applying to work in the same country where you have recently worked

Note: For the purpose of verification, you are required to bring original documents.

Good luck!

Are there other specific requirements for your vacancies for Professionals, Skilled and Semi-skilled and other positions?

Yes, do check the requirements of the other job vacancies in the JOB LEADS page. You can filter and do a search per country and per category.

Back to FAQs

I am currently working and residing outside the Philippines. Can I still apply and how do I find out if I will be considered for the position I applied for?

Yes, you simply have to apply online, so that your personal information is permanently stored in our database for future reference. When a suitable vacancy arises and, depending on the mobilization requirement date, you will receive a notification from IPAMS. Keep in mind that you should continuously update your resume by logging in using your email address and password.

I am residing in a far flung province (Northern Luzon, Visayas or Mindanao). Do you have provincial branches, or do you conduct provincial sourcing so that I can apply without having to travel to Manila?

We do not have provincial branches at the present time, but we are seriously considering this possibility. We, however, conduct provincial sourcing as the need arises and we announce or advertise the schedule in advance, either through nationwide or local newsprint publication (classified ad), TV crawler ad, radio, and through our website www.ipams.com and other job portals. Better yet, we strongly recommend that you apply online. "Like" us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter also to keep abreast of announcements.

I just came from Saudi Arabia (contract completion) and I want to apply for IPAMS' job opening for its KSA-based client, would I be accommodated?

Yes, definitely. However, you have to make sure that you had been issued an "Exit Visa" (not an Exit-Reentry Visa) by your former employer in KSA. If you found out that your former employer has issued you an Exit-Reentry Visa, contact them ASAP and seek their advice whether you can return to their country under a new visa sponsor or not. This is to avoid potential problems (i.e. deportation) with the KSA Immigration. For our client such as Saudi Aramco, the No Objection Certificate (NOC) is a primary requirement. Otherwise, the 2-year Out-of-Kingdom Rule must be followed.

Back to FAQs

Does IPAMS charge any placement fee and accept salary deduction arrangement?

NO, absolutely not. Unlike some entities that state "NO FEES" yet charge candidates with hidden fees, IPAMS firmly believes in upholding its principle of “NO PLACEMENT FEE NO PROCESSING FEES nor salary deduction arrangement for all its worldwide recruitment. IPAMS started this golden rule when it was conceived in 1971, and today, still upholds this belief in line with its mission of maintaining the highest standards of integrity and service. Our international and local clients shoulder your recruitment and deployment expenses to include your initial compulsory insurance coverage as mandated by Republic Act 10022.

Back to FAQs

What are the fees that OFWs are required to shoulder?

As authorized by the POEA, OFWs are required to pay for their mandatory PhilHealth annual coverage and Pag-ibig Membership contributions pursuant to Republic Act No. 9679 or the Home Development Mutual Fund Law of 2009.

Back to FAQs

What is the monthly salary rate and employee benefit package when I get employed?

The monthly salary rate for a position is generally commensurate to qualification and experience requirements. In most cases, the salary rate is not discussed until after the selection is done and it is formalized into an Offer of Employment with accompanying employee benefit package and other terms and conditions of the Employment Contract. IPAMS only chooses the best reputable clients who can provide you with highly competitive compensation and benefit package.

Back to FAQs

I applied before at IPAMS and went through preliminary screening and/or final interview, but I was not called back for the result. Does this mean I did not qualify and if so, may I still apply again?

Generally, if you did not receive any notification after the final interview, you were not favorably selected for the current vacancy. However, this should not stop you from applying again. If you think that you would qualify for any future vacancy, simply update your resume particularly if you acquired additional training and/or experience. We advise that you keep visiting our website for updated job openings and schedule of interview workshops. "Like" us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter as well.

Back to FAQs

How will I know that the recruitment agency that I choose to deal with is legitimate?

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) publishes a list of licensed Philippine recruitment and placement agencies in good standing. Please visit www.poea.gov.ph and see also the list of Agency Top Performers/Excellence Awardees. IPAMS License No. is POEA-247-LB-120911-PA. In case you chance upon unauthorized recruiters or agencies, report the matter immediately to the POEA's Anti-Illegal Recruitment Branch at tel. no. 722-11-92 or the Philippine National Police (PNP), or the NBI.
