Online job portal, jobsDB Philippines, pioneers another innovation in the recruitment industry with HIRED – the jobsDB Recruitment Party! HIRED aims to provide job seekers with job opportunities in the BPO/Call center industry; one of the country’s fastest growing and highest-paying employment sectors.
The BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) industry has provided thousands of jobs to millions of Filipino job seekers since it first came to the Philippines in 1999. The industry is estimated to hit revenues of up to $25 billion by 2016, and may soon account for approximately 10 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product.
The Philippines has long been considered as the location of choice of international companies looking to establish their offshore call center facilities due to its less expensive operational and labor costs, highly skilled workforce, proficiency in American-style English and idioms, and a constant stream of college-educated graduates entering the workforce.
Oliver C. Ramos, Marketing Manager of jobsDB Philippines, adds that HIRED is the first of its kind in Philippines.
“Our goal is to take the recruitment process in the country to a whole new level and HIRED is but the first of many other events we have in mind to do just that. In the past, job seekers would have to wait until after they receive their first salary to celebrate being hired, now, we want them to celebrate right away!”
Oliver further clarifies that HIRED is not a regular job fair because only those who pass the pre-screening procedure will be invited for an interview with a specific BPO client.
“Unlike regular job fairs, HIRED brings the applicant one-step closer to an actual job offer. The pre-screening process ensures that once they get to the venue, they will be endorsed to a BPO client that matches their skills and job experience. If they do well, they can actually leave with an employment contract in tow.”
“There are so many opportunities waiting for job seekers in the BPO industry. It’s one of the best industries to work with because of the competitive salary, above-industry perks and benefits, and speedy career promotions. With all the trainings and seminars call center companies provide to their employees, their personal and professional development is already guaranteed.”
Top BPO companies such as Hinduja Global Solutions, Teleperformance, and VXI have agreed to partner with jobsDB Philippines for the event.
Hundreds of job seekers are expected to flock to the Elbow Room in Metrowalk Entertainment Complex, Ortigas Center to be interviewed, get hired, and celebrate their success with a grand party hosted by former PBB: Celebrity Edition housemate and ace DJ, Rico Robles right after. Pre-registration and pre-screening is ongoing and interested applicants can go to http://hired.jobsdbevents.com.ph/ to register.
HIRED – the jobsDB Philippines Recruitment Party is made possible with support from the following partners: Unison, Gatsby, Adobo Magazine, Guestlist.ph, wheninmanila.com, Philippine Blogger Network, Solar Entertainment, ETC and Zalora.
