Last August, JobStreet.com Philippines released the Cebu Jobs and Salary Report. In a media briefing, JobStreet.com Philippines Marketing Manager Eileen Camarillo-Go presented the report, which showed that BPO had the most number of job openings in Cebu.

Within the January-March 2017 period, there were 3,000 Cebu-based jobs listed in JobStreet.com, and 35% of them were BPO-related jobs. Further, BPO also had the most number of job listings across the whole country.

According to Camarillo-Go, the growth is expected to continue and that US President Donald Trump's statements against outsourcing "didn't reflect on the BPO jobs and we haven't felt any effect yet. When we talked to our partners in the BPO industry, we saw that it's not going to happen soon."

Best-paid employees

The JobStreet Cebu Jobs and Salary Report also identified that BPO jobs for fresh graduates accounted for 47%, in which outsourcing firms hire fresh grads for customer service, IT and software, and education specialist roles. Education specialists working in BPO and IT specialists from junior executive to supervisory levels are also the best-paid employees, according to the report.
