The IT industry, particularly the business process management sector, has been a major driver of the country’s economic growth in recent years, boosting business and creating job opportunities for many Filipinos.
With stronger government support through the PH IT-BPM Roadmap 2021, the industry is expected to accelerate even further and demand for IT-based jobs likely to increase steadily in the next few years.
ICTjob.ph, the country’s premier IT job portal, aims to provide a platform for efficient employer-employee matchmaking. Continuous technological developments have made access to the growing range of career opportunities in the IT sector, allowing both job seeker and provider to get information as and when necessary.
While the growing influx of information has made it harder to filter data and find the right match, ICTjob.ph seeks to streamline the matchmaking process. Its newly revamped site features an innovative CV database and a unique IT market-specific system that matches candidates with employers based on a job seeker’s skills and to the company’s needs. This helps with the screening process.
The updated ICTjob.ph website to launch this May also features a recruiter’s dashboard for the client to showcase the company and employee branding, and a jobseeker’s board exhibiting their profile completeness and potential employer matches.
Job hunting in the digital age
ICTjob.ph enables IT job seekers to check out the company they are applying for, even see the company’s office setting, facilities, and location.
Job seekers can create their profile through the website and log-in via Gmail, Yahoo mail, Facebook or LinkedIn and complete them by going through the vast selection of IT-related skills and expertise in the skill matrix. The skill matrix allows the applicants to pick seven keywords that best represent their abilities to impress potential employers.
The profiles are uploaded onto a CV database, which is regularly updated and is accessible to recruiters via ICTjob.ph’s search engine. Recruiters doing a search get results that have been filtered to show only candidates that best fit the job’s requirements and are available for hiring, effectively cutting the time for screening applicants while ensuring quality results. Recruiters also have the option to send out personalized job offers to prospective employees registered in the database.
Fred Tshidimba, ICTjob.ph founder and CEO, shares: “With the continuously growing demand for IT professionals today, ICTjob.ph is well-positioned to help address the talent gap in the local IT sector by providing the platform where both employees and employers can explore job opportunities within the industry.”
Hence, ICTjob.ph has solid ties with colleges and universities such as the University of the Philippines, Polytechnic University of the Philippines, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde to name a few. Organizations from all over the country from various sectors not limited to IT service industries and digital services outsource companies but also from finance, BPO, and real estate can be tapped by IT graduates every year. Job postings on ICTjob.ph are simultaneously published on partner sites such as LinkedIn, Indeed, Neuvoo, Trovit, Mitula, and other different job networking sites for wider reach. Some of ICTjob.ph’s leading partners are AIG, Capgemini, Tech Mahindra, 3M, and Atos.
