Roxas City firm seeks to bridge industry-academe gap

Roxas City-based Spring Valley has partnered with a unit of Globe Telecom in an effort to bridge the academe-industry gap affecting the country’s business process outsourcing sector. Spring Valley recently launched, a platform that allows students, educational institutions, companies and other organizations to register and connect. The site enables students to outline their specific knowledge and skills and choose the companies that match their chosen field for their on-the-job training. Spring Valley CEO Jonathan De Luzuriaga said the partnership will strengthen and enhance the country’s student internship and the OJT program, which he said is the best way to equip college students with the necessary tools to carve a brighter future in the IT sector.
