Fresh graduates to further boost country’s IT-BPM position

The IT and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) has expressed optimism that the entry into the workforce of fresh university graduates this year will further boost the country’s standing as a top destination for IT and business process management (IT-BPM) services. IBPAP chairman Danilo Sebastian said the entry of fresh university-educated talent and the installation of new government leaders in May will propel the Philippines as the top source of IT-BPM in the world, giving the Philippines the opportunity to overtake India. However, Sebastian stressed that the challenge would be addressing the quality of talent joining the workforce. He urged universities and colleges to produce graduates who possess practical industry requirements in terms of skills and knowledge.
