Recently, the Department of Labor and Employment has released a list of jobs that will be in-demand for the next ten years in the Philippines. The list was created based on findings of DOLE's latest labor market study under its "Project Jobs Fit" program. The list was released to the public on June 29 of this year. That was the day when President Aquino announced Baldoz's appointment.
The program has pinpointed the sectors that need more workforce in the next ten years. These sectors are: agribusiness, cyberservices, health and wellness, hotel, restaurant and tourism, mining, construction, banking and finance, manufacturing, ownership dwellings and real estate, transport and logistics, wholesale and retail trade. The research also identified the need to buttress the four emerging industries expected to reinforce employment opportunities, namely creative industries, diversified/strategic farming and fishing, power and utilities, and renewable energy.
This program will help Filipino students to choose the right course or major in college and would give them the opportunity to land a job once they finished college. Aside from that, the case for brain drain would be minimized. This has been one of the problems that the Philippines is trying to resolve. Fresh college graduates would usually apply for a job which is different from the curriculum that they took during their college years. In essence, the college degree earned has somehow been put to waste.
Experience nurses will be needed in health and wellness sector. Animal husbandry graduates, agricultural economists, aquaculturists, and coconut farmers are needed in the agribusiness sector.
Call center agents are still in-demand for the next ten years in cyber services sector. One advantage of applying for a position in a call center is that a degree is not a requirement to get a job in this type of industry. Most of the people I know who are now occupying higher positions in a call center have not finished college.
The outsourcing industry would still continue to bloom. Having said that, call center agent is not the only position that will be in-demand in the cyber services sector. This will pave way to other outsourcing industry such as SEO. In this age where the internet is the most powerful tool that helps business to become successful; link builders, webmasters, and other related online jobs will soon be one of the sought after job in the Philippines. Aside from that, Philippines will also be known as the perfect choice in finding a perfect SEO partner.
Filipino people would surely benefit on the "Project Jobs Fit" program of the Department of Labour and Employment. The program aims to help Filipino to choose the right curriculum in college and apply what they have learned which will help boost the Philippines economy.
Filipino people are expecting so much from the current administration. The hope of having a decent life has been elusive. To have a nice paying job is the only answer that could make life easier for people who are below poverty level. Thus, choosing the right major or course in college would result to a very promising career once you graduate.
If you are thinking of outsourcing, the best country to outsource dedicated workers is from the Philippines. Workers from the Philippines are dedicated, polite, and smart and are good in written and oral English Language.
