Jobs related to information communications technology/business process outsourcing (ICT/BPO) are ranked No. 1 in terms of vacancies in this Freeport during the last quarter of this year.
In a report by the Customer Services Department (CSD) to Clark Development Corporation (CDC) President Felipe Antonio B. Remollo, some 2,222 workers or 75 percent of the total 3,008 job vacancies are needed by the ICT/BPO firms in Clark.
CSD manager Rodem Perez said the ICT/BPO-related services include web designers and developers, programmers, technical support operators, Linux and Windows Systems administrators, English online teachers, and call center agents.
The CSD report said both Cyber City Teleservices, Inc. and Sutherland Global Services each has vacancies of 500, Nozomi Fortune Services, 400, and Ivonline Contents Center, Inc., 200 new workers.
Other with significant job openings are Advanpoint (90), Clark On Line It Hub (50), Mepcon Phils., Inc (170), Services Resources, Inc. (55), GFL System Clark Inc. (105), and Global Standard English Learning Center (75), among others.
Next to ICT/BPO is the industrial (electronic) or the semiconductor sector which is in need of 340 new personnel or 10.2 percent vacancies to be filled up before the end of the year.
Among those firms are the Texas Instruments Clark which is in need of 300 personnel before the end of the year while Nanox Phils., Inc., Phoenix Semiconductor Phils. Corporation, Poongsan Microtec Phils., Corporation, and SMK Electronics (Phils.) Corporation have also several openings for this year.
Moreover, there is a noticeable shift in locators’ preferences for applicants who have had college credits at the very least.
CSD’s latest report reflects a preference for college level applicants (53 percent or almost 1,600), and college graduates (20 percent or more than 600).
In the previous months, job vacancies for high school graduates accounted for more than 50 percent of total workforce requirements for the Clark Freeport.
Perez explained that the shift in locators’ preferences can be attributed to CSD’s continuous advertisement of job vacancies and the twice-annual Jobs Fair that his department coordinates with all stakeholders.
These efforts have allowed labor-intensive sectors to almost fill up their vacancies and they are now in the process of filling up positions for supervisory and managerial positions, Perez said.
The latest report also showed that total employment at Clark has now reached an all-time high of 63,223 spread over 509 stakeholders.
