ILO Chief Tells RP Grads to Fill In Manpower Gaps in BPO

Fresh Grads should try their luck in BPOs

International Labor Organization (ILO) chief Lawrence Jeff Johnson said that instead of waiting for a job overseas, Filipino graduates should get employed in the business process outsourcing (BPO) sector to fill in the labor market gaps. “There’s lack of takers in the available jobs in the labor market even if there are graduates who could fill in these [jobs]. These graduates without jobs must take advantage of the labor market gaps."

He added that the demand has exceeded manpower supply since 2007. For instance, the industry needs 60,012 engineers, accountants, and skilled workers, 178,771 hotel and restaurant workers, and 747,947 employees for voice-based work. On the other hand, the number of nursing graduates is more than the number of jobs available. Johnson said with their medical background, these graduates can temporarily get employed as medical transcriptionists to help fill the gap.
