BPO jobs most in-demand in Davao

BPO work place

Jobs at business process outsourcing (BPO) firms are the most in-demand in Davao City, according to the Public Employment Service Office (PESO). BPO firms also continue be the top employers in the city, the PESO report added. However, lawyer Samuel Matunog, Information and Communication Technology-Davao president, disclosed that there is a need to address the lack of skills among the new graduates to meet the demand of the outsourcing industry. Matunog said there are a lot of opportunities in the BPO industry but not many people are applying for BPO jobs due to their lack of English proficiency or lack of skills in computer operation.
