2011 will be a good year in terms of local job opportunities. According to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), more than a million job openings are expected next year, and the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry will be the main employment generator for Filipinos.
DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said the agency is coordinating with other concerned agencies so the country will be able to supply enough manpower for the BPO industry. To prepare those who want to join the BPO workforce, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) will provide free English language communication training. “We also had an agreement with BPOs to ensure 100 percent absorption or hiring once the skills training is completed,” Baldoz said. The government also called for a national congress with the goal of strengthening the job facilitation services of DOLE.
