BPO positions account for the majority of employment postings in Region 11.
DAVAO CITY, Philippines — The business processing outsourcing (BPO) industry accounts for the majority of job openings in the Department of Labor and Employment in the Davao Region (DOLE-11).
DOLE-11 Lorraine Ugsang, the agency’s focal person for employment, said the agency will hold another job fair from June 10 to 11 at the NCCC Mall in Buhangin, Davao City.
Over 1,300 opportunities in the BPO sector are scheduled to open, with local firms additionally offering 350 Sales Representative/Associate posts.
There are additional job openings for technical assistance, production workers, and outbound sales representatives.
According to Ugsang, healthcare workers might anticipate exploring chances abroad because over 2,000 jobs are available from a variety of organizations.
During the employment fair, overseas firms are looking for customer service, housekeeping, staff nurse, and welding positions.
“In Davao Region, we’ve been holding micro job fairs and regular job fairs to help people who have lost their employment or are underemployed as a result of the epidemic,” Ugsang said.
She credited the improvement in employment status to the work of DOLE-11, local government units, and the Public Employment Service Office (PESO).
The Philippine Statistics Authority reported that the employment rate in March 2021 was 92.9 percent as of May 2022. In March 2022, the employment rate rose to 94.2 percent, indicating a little improvement.
The rate of underemployment fell from 16.2 percent in March 2021 to 15.8 percent in March 2022. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate was 7.1 percent in March 2021, falling to 5.8 percent in March 2022.
“We may expect these changes because the region has been on a lower alert level for three months due to low Covid-19 infections.” At the same time, we have outperformed expectations in terms of providing people seeking new job prospects with options from both domestic and international firms,” Ugsang added.
