The Department of Labor and Employment has urged low- and semi-skilled overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who have returned to the country to seek employment in the business process outsourcing (BPO) sector. Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said OFW-returnees can join the industry that seeks to generate 1.19 million direct employment this year. Aside from OFW-returnees, Baldoz also urged fresh graduates and first-time job seekers to join the information technology – business process management (IT-BPM) industry. For this year alone, contact centers in the Philippines are expected to provide about 225,000 jobs, with 100,000 of these jobs coming from the health-outsourcing sub sector. Baldoz said OFW-returnees and fresh graduates can choose from a variety of vacancies in voice and non-voice services in the industry.
