Unemployment rate decrease due to job in the BPO sector

The business process outsourcing (BPO) sector of the Philippines is slowly reducing unemployment in the country. According to Pasig City Rep. Roman Romulo, nearly 22,000 nursing graduates were able to land well-paying medical coding and clinical service jobs in the sector.

Romulo said more and more organizations that are serving healthcare clients in the US are setting up operations in the country, and these organizations are hiring nurses for local employment. He added that they are hoping that this will decrease the unemployment rate among nurses.

Meanwhile, the IT and Business Processing Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) projected that by 2016, the sector will produce $27 billion in annual revenues and employ 1.3 million Filipinos.

Romulo, who is likewise the Chairman of the House Committee on Higher and Technical Education, said unemployment remains high among nurses because of the large volume of graduates every year. The Professional Regulatory Commission granted licenses to almost 22,222 board passers this year.

However, Romulo pointed out that the jobs in the BPO sector require aspiring candidates to have strong communication and analytical skills - and should be willing to work in shifts.
