With the launch of the Philippine IT-BPM Industry Roadmap 2028, the IT and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) and its stakeholders took a big leap and set a very lofty ambition for the sector—that of generating 1.1 million new jobs for Filipinos and becoming a US$59 billion industry by the close of the next six years.
In line with this, IBPAP will be holding its first IT-BPM Career & Job Fair on 27 April 2023, where students, fresh graduates, and job seekers will get the chance to LEARN from IT-BPM practitioners and professionals; ENHANCE their knowledge of the dynamic sector and the evolving talent landscape; gain ACCESS to IBPAP’s expansive network of member organizations; and PURSUE opportunities with like-minded companies and individuals.
The event will be held virtually on https://itbpm.talenthub.ph/ and will feature jobs postings, exhibitor booths, learning sessions, and many more. Through the platform, participants will be able to (1) set up a profile and upload their resumes, (2) request a real-time chat with potential employers using text, audio, or video, and (3) watch how-to videos that could give them a leg up in their job search.
The IT and Business Process Association of the Philippines is the primary trade body and advocacy group of the country’s agile, dynamic, and resilient IT and Business Process Management (IT-BPM) sector.
With over 350 members and six partner associations—the Animation Council of the Philippines, Inc. (ACPI), Global In-House Center Council (GICC) Philippines, Contact Center Association of the Philippines (CCAP), Game Developers Association of the Philippines (GDAP), Healthcare Information Management Association of the Philippines (HIMAP), and the Philippine Software Industry Association (PSIA)—IBPAP plays a pivotal role in sustaining the growth of the IT -BPM industry by working with stakeholders in the government and academe to ensure an enduring supply of high-quality labor, support service innovation, and provide country visibility.
IBPAP also assists investors in setting up operations easily and quickly in the Philippines through relevant research, introductions to key officials, and a series of briefings at each step of the investment process. Initiatives for human resources, business development, knowledge sharing, and networking opportunities are also made available to members as a means of continued support.
Ongoing support is then provided through a wide variety of initiatives, including programs for HR development, business development, knowledge sharing, and networking opportunities. IBPAP works closely with the government, academe, and other key stakeholders to make this possible and to reinforce the Philippine IT-BPM industry’s global competitiveness and relevance.
