Ilonggos are urged to take advantage of the jobs offered by different BPO companies in Iloilo.
Jose Espinosa III, Iloilo’s mayor, said that the industry is in need of 5,000 workers and will employ them immediately.
To prepare residents for various BPO jobs, Espinosa said that he wanted to prioritize the establishment of speech laboratories.
According to Espinosa, “Our BPOs do not need college graduates. They are only after those with good communication skills”.
Iloilo City hosts 52 voice and non-voice BPO firms, according to Ritchel Gavan, Local Economic and Investment Promotion Office (LEIPO) head.
