90 Thousand Jobs in BPO

Wednesday, March 11, 2009


It never seems to be affecting the Philippines at all because there are at least 90,000 jobs that are up for grabs in Business Process Outsourcing. This is also the industry that I’m in and I’m proud of it!

Upto 90 thousand jobs are possibly going to be created in the call center industry just this year. This has been pronounced by Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT) Chairman Rey Anthony Roxas Chua in the cabinet meeting that was held in Clark Field Pampanga.

Chua said that the Philippines is second to India in the market share for voice and non-voice services since 2007, but the Philippines has the distinction to be the Best IT destination in the world.

The continuing work offered and being delivered in the call center industry in the face of the global financial crisis is proof of this and it is North America that still gets the services of our market in the Manila and Cebu Area which are called cyber corridors. Laguna, Cavite, Iloilo, Davao, Bacolod, Pampanga including Clark, Bulacan, Cagayan de Oro and Lipa, Batangas are now emerging cities too for this industry.
