Partnership seen to generate IT job opportunities in San Carlos

VIRTUAL Workforce Professionals (VWP) has partnered with the City Government of San Carlos, through its Cooperative Livelihood Development Office (CLDO), for an initiative that will provide information technology (IT)-enabled work opportunities in the northern Negros Occidental locality.

VWP chief executive officer and founder Leif Brian Margallo and San Carlos City Mayor Gerardo Valmayor Jr. signed the agreement at the city hall on April 11.

It was witnessed by the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) Visayas Cluster Head Fredrick Amores, PTB Digital Hub owner Jun Barangan, and City IT Officer Allan Binghay.

VWP said the project aims to provide jobs and opportunities encompassing call center, data encoding, transcribing and processing, directories, content development for multimedia and internet purposes, virtual assistance and any business process outsourcing (BPO) e-commerce related jobs.

The firm said the partnership site is the city's existing rural impact sourcing (RIS) hub, which is a product of collaboration and partnership with the DICT.

The agency is the primary administrative entity of the national government that plans, develops and promotes the national ICT development agenda, it added.
