Manila, Philippines – As the pandemic continues to disrupt the economy, the demand for digital skills from the Philippine workforce witnesses a sharp increase, leaving many who lack the digital capabilities sidelined in the new normal.

Aiming to provide a better glimpse of the BPO industry to the Filipino workforce, Go Digital ASEAN provides free learning opportunities to boost the employability of displaced workers, returning OFWs, out-of-school youth, PWDs, and other sectors by equipping them with digital tools and skills as the job market positions to rebound and adapt to recover from the pandemic.

Its latest initiative introduces the free two-part summit, ‘Trabaho Talks’, which aims to highlight digital work opportunities in the BPO and in the Digital Freelancing sectors. These events give attendees a clearer picture of what is ahead in the job market and sets the stage for designing a practical digital career roadmap towards building sustainable livelihood. The first installment entitled Launching Your Career in the BPO Industry on October 27, 2021 at 9:00AM to 12:00NN via Zoom. This event brings together key stakeholders from the BPO or Information Technology – Business Processing Management (IT-BPM)  and tech social enterprises to discuss different opportunities and career landscape in the IT-BPM space that Filipinos can take advantage of, and best practices to seize these opportunities.
