THE Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) said it will expand the availability of its career portal next month after initially offering the program to candidates in the provinces.
In an email to BusinessWorld, IBPAP said it has entered into a partnership with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) to offer the portal to candidates living in major cities and in the academe.
The portal provides career guidance on opportunities in the Information Technology and Business Process Management (IT-BPM) sector.
The portal forms part of the association’s industry and career awareness campaign. It will host an industry awareness fair on Nov. 5. It also provides “career maps” which will allow portal users to learn more about the upskilling required for their jobs.
IBPAP said its Learning Switch program offers courses relevant to an IT-BPM worker.
“This initiative was done in partnership with Cloudswyft and the goal is to make learning accessible to our employees anytime, anywhere. Through it, we have enabled open access to hundreds of courses for various learning tracks which includes Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Administration, Big Data, DevOps, Modern IT Support, Data Science, Modern Software Development, and Web Development,” IBPAP said.
The organization added that more courses in collaboration with Cloudswyft and Microsoft will be available soon. — Gillian M. Cortez
