Job seekers told to consider BPOs instead of migrating

JOB SEEKERS were advised on Wednesday to consider local outsourcing jobs instead of going abroad, with an industry group noting that the sector is in need of accountants, nurses and engineers.

“New graduates and established professionals don’t have to go abroad for international, well-paying jobs,” Business Process Association of the Philippines (BPAP) senior executive director Gillian Virata said in a statement.

“We have jobs in IT (information technology), software development, customer service, finance and accounting, health care, legal, creative services, and engineering,” Ms. Virata added.

BPO players aim to generate 120,000 jobs this year as part of its goal to employ 1.3 million Filipinos by 2016, the BPAP statement noted.

Information campaigns are also being boosted to attract more potential employees to the sector, Ms. Virata noted.

“We are doing this campaign to address a potential talent gap that could impact growth of IT-BPO,” BPAP president and chief executive Benedict C. Hernandez said in the statement. –Kim Arveen M. Patria
