IT - BPO Industry

While it’s no secret that the information technology and business process outsourcing (IT-BPO) sector has been ever-growing, Quezon City is one of the beneficiaries of its development in recent years. Thanks to continuous foreign investment, many more BPO companies are beginning to establish their presence in Quezon City among others. However, don’t be too quick to assume that only call centers are being created because alongside the BPO industry is the sharp rise of information technology. 

Under the blanket terms of information technology, there are different sub-sectors where different career opportunities abound. 

Some of the sub-sectors under IT include:
●    Knowledge process outsourcing (KPO):
●    Software development
●    Game development
●    Engineering design
●    Animation

If you have experience in these aforementioned lines of work or have an educational background relating to it, then Quezon City can be a great place to settle down in.

Real Estate 

The rise of the real estate industry is closely associated with the previously mentioned IT-BPO sector. Because there are more companies setting up shop in the city, they naturally need a physical space to occupy. Aside from new residential properties like the ones being developed by Aspire by Filinvest, office spaces are also increasing in number. Quezon City provided at least 33% of the office space supply for Metro Manila in 2019 alone — a testament to the city’s growth in terms of real estate.

If you are part of the real estate industry, finding a condo in Quezon City to reside in can prove to be a smart career decision.
