College-level students, graduates, and working professionals are encouraged to join the workshop. The provinces included in the itinerary are Koronadal, South Cotabato; Kalibo, Aklan; Surigao City, Surigao del Norte; and Calbayog, Samar.
According to the DOST-ICT Office, the campaign is coordinated based on the government’s goal to create 1.3 million jobs in the IT-business process management (IT-BPM) sector by 2016. The organization is also pushing for the use of new technologies to gain access to digital markets and emerging BPO regions so that more jobs will be created.
Meanwhile, Louis Casambre, Executive Director at DOST-ICTO, said the organization is actively seeking ways to improve their readiness against the rapid changes in the tech world. He cited Rural Impact Sourcing, which enables investors to contribute to the progress of provinces. He also explained that workers from these areas no longer have to go to developed cities to get jobs.
One of the processes highlighted throughout the workshop is virtual assistance, a highly sought-after service in online job portals. Employees will be expected to work remotely and perform administrative tasks such as technical support.
