LINGAYEN– College or high school graduates, and residents of Pangasinan are encouraged to grab the opportunity to be part Concentrix, the biggest Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) company in the country today.

Concentrix, formerly Convergys, has forged partnership with the provincial government of Pangasinan led by Governor Amado I. Espino III for the staging of FUSION 2020 : Pangasinan Provincial Job Fest on February 7 and 8 at the Narciso Ramos Sports and Civic Center gym.

Concentrix Training and Quality Senior Director Larah Sta. Maria, during the Pangasinan in Action “Talakayan sa Kapitolyo” held on January 21 at the Urduja House ceremonial hall, has encouraged Pangasinenses to take advantage of the special package offered during the recruitment activity.

“The special package includes a relocation assistance to be shouldered by the company,” said Sta. Maria, who reiterated that applicants must only comply with the following minimum requirements to be hired.

Qualifications include: applicant must be 18 years old and over, at least high school graduate, must have good communication skills, and must be computer literate.

FUSION 2020 is coined, hinting on the partnership between two giants – the provincial government of Pangasinan; and the Concentrix, which is known as the biggest BPO company in the country with over 80,000 employees at present.

“We want Pangasinenses that’s why we are here,” Sta. Maria stressed during the media forum.

Sta. Maria said applicants from Pangasinan who will be hired would choose the area or branch of Concentrix where he/she wants to work at, which are near to the province of Pangasinan like Manila, Baguio City, and Pampanga.

PESO Pangasinan Manager Alex Ferrer said he is looking forward to gather 1,000 applicants from the province participating in the FUSION 2020 on February 7 and 8.

Just last year, Ferrer said PESO Pangasinan thru its job fairs, job fair on wheels, and other manpower generation activities conducted, was able to facilitate the employment of over 2,000 Pangasinenses in local and overseas based companies.

Meanwhile, the PESO Pangasinan will conduct its first Job Fair for this year on January 24 at the PESO compound located within the Capitol Complex in Lingayen.
