Despite the financial crisis still taking its toll across the country, the Business Process Association of the Philippines (BPAP) is positive that the outsourcing industry will remain strong this year. This is particularly true in Davao, where more and more Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) firms are eyeing on the city as a favorable investment destination. BPAP ranks Davao as number 4 among the 10 Next Wave Cities, defined as the top outsourcing destinations outside of Metro Manila and Cebu, on the basis of a city’s ability to host BPO firms which include talent availability, infrastructure, real estate, business environment and other specific metrics. As in other cities that aim to attract this industry, Davao’s universities and colleges provide an unwavering supply of IT- and BPO-oriented graduates that serve as the lifeblood of these firms. What separates Davao though is the quality of its workforce, which was found to be better than what Cebu, Angeles/Clark or Baguio has to offer, accord-

ing to a study conducted by XMG Asia Pacific. The surge in demand for BPO-related jobs also attracts potential workforce from Davao’s nearby cities and provinces, and even outside of Mindanao, aided by the fact that the city is easily accessible via air, sea and land transportation. The cities of Cagayan de Oro, Zamboanga, Iligan, Marawi, General Santos and Cotabato, for example, are home to our country’s finest universities and colleges, bringing thousands of graduates every year equipped with skills fit for BPO-oriented jobs. Schools have also upgraded its training materials to match the industry’s needs as they have become increasingly aware of its presence in the region. A BPO center owned by HP Outsourcing Philippines, Inc. was recently launched at the Mindanao State University’s Iligan City campus which will serve as its remote office and is intended to provide training on web design, animation, transcription services and other skills to the students, with a purpose of hiring selected graduates from the said university.

P12 million for 2012 Olympic boxing gold

A 12 million peso reward awaits the Filipino boxer who captures a gold medal in the 2012 London Olympics. Amateur boxing chairman Manny V. Pangilinan said Smart Communications is committed to give the multi-million prize for that elusive gold. “This is the first major step from Bacolod to London. Please stay with us in our quest for the Olympic gold in London,” said Pangilinan in announcing the rich cash incentives for Filipino boxers. Pangilinan, also the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas president and PLDT and Smart chair, bared that an Olympic silver medal will be worth P3 million while P1 million will be offered for the bronze medal during the ABAP national congress at the L’Fisher Hotel. Achievers in other international boxing tournaments also stand to receive rich rewards.

Cash prizes worth P2 million, P1 million and P500,000 await gold, silver and bronze medal winners in the Asian Games; P1 million, P500,000 and P250,000 in World Championships; P300,000, P200,000 and P100,000 in the Southeast Asian Games and P30,000, P20,000 and P10,000 in minor international tournaments. ABAP president Ricky Vargas, for his part, urged boxing stakeholders to join in the four-year campaign for the country’s first Olympic gold medal. “With the same dedication, hard work, determination, courage and sacrifice, we ask our boxers to embrace our quest for the Olympic gold,” said Vargas. “I ask every ABAP official and regional president to demonstrate these same values and discipline we want to instill amongst our boxers,” he added.

false puppet

Bring home the bacon

BY FAR I HAVEN’T HEARD much people talk about career until

BY: MICK JETHRO BASA

I met Kuya Raul, a workmate, who once spoke in one of our training that he seeks for a career in the company where we are working right now. That brought me to seek answers for his underlying message.

like ending up with a job that will turn you into a public figure. Some jobs really pay a lot but will require you to give up creativity, recognition, and taking risks. It also pays a lot to know the nature of a job besides from knowing how much it would pay.

You see, a fresh graduate like me wouldn’t really get a 43-year old guy who seriously wants to seek career in his new work. True enough, questions such as “are you working?” became a random ingredient in every post-graduation conversation. But I have never heard someone say he needs a career. Not even on Facebook status messages.

Get to know more of your self. Are you the type who literally freezes when asked by an interview to describe yourself? You should know how to tell the world who you are. In that way, you will know what you want. There are free personality quizzes on the web (example: 9types.com). Take advantage of it.

That brought me to refresh my vocabulary. My word-power buddy, Merriam-Webster, says that career is an occupation undertaken for a significant period of a person’s life and with opportunities for progress. For all you know, the roots of this term come from a hideous Latin word carrera. Prehistoric men must have had unimpressive attitude towards work before. Many workers before didn’t have much choice. They would often inherit or take up a single lifelong position without even asking why he had to do that work and never had a better concept of career. Rodents in rat races have no idea what they’re doing inside a racetrack except that they are all after the cheese. We, on the other hand, work not after the cheese alone. We don’t want to work hard for money alone. Here’s where career comes into the picture. We want an occupation that opens the door of opportunities for progress. In choosing a career that bespeaks well of your soul, you might consider the following.

FIND A JOB THAT WILL MEET YOUR PRINCIPLES

Don’t just work because that job pays well. You might consider jobs that will feed your ideals. An ideal job depends on what set of values you have. If you’re the type of person that values individuality and privacy, you don’t

ASSESS YOURSELF

SEE YOURSELF IN THE FUTURE

In the next 20 years, how do you see yourself with the kind of career you chose? Will you still be contented and happy with your career? Long-range perspectives are important. Start imagining yourself in the future. People succeed because they know their goals and they have better pictures of themselves years from now.

MONEY MATTERS

This is the cheese in every carrera but yes, money matters. At the top of the banner, you have to pay a plethora of debts and you have needs that only money can pay. Friends, you should consider financial security. Next time an interviewee asks you of your expected salary, give a justifiable price tag. At the end of the day, you have to bring home the bacon. You are what you work. If you trade your life and time for nothing in exchange of money – it’s a rotten deal. Mick Basa is a Sales Executive in Makati and plans to enter Law School next year.

Do you want to HOW TO be liked or do you sell yourself to an employer want to be a good manager? Self-Marketing and Self Promotion

We’d all prefer to be liked, but managers who spend too much time trying to be popular and friendly with members of their teams can be a recipe for disaster. Managers who place too much emphasis on their relationship with team risk ending up damaging productivity and performance, research by management consultancy Hay Group has suggested. The study of 20 executive leadership teams at Fortune 500 companies analysed the values held by team leaders and members and their impact on team performance. It found that teams whose members were interdependent and worked towards a common purpose tend to perform more effectively. In contrast, teams that were little more than a collection of individuals delivered weaker performance, no matter how talented or experienced the team members. Top performing executive teams were more likely to place a high value on people and team relationships. Yet, crucially, leaders who displayed high levels of affiliation were far less likely to create highly effective teams, Hay concluded. Overly affiliative executives failed to avoid favouritism and were less likely to make unpopular decisions, it argued. They were also less likely to exclude people from teams that were already at optimum size or prevent behaviour that was not necessarily conducive to completing tasks or delivering results. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, Chris Watkin, associate director at Hay Group, said: “The message to senior business leaders is: don’t overdo the love. “Our research demonstrates that too much concern with relationships and popularity damages team productivity,” he added. Too much affiliation at the top reduced team effectiveness, he stressed. “Leaders become overly concerned with maintaining popularity and good relationships and fail to address underperformance and make tough decisions,” he added. “To maximise team performance, leaders must ask themselves: do my relationships support or detract from the direction of the team?” he concluded.

Job Search Tips

1. Once you decide the career path you want to pursue, pursue it with passion. If after a reasonable amount of time you are not successful, be willing to try something else. You can always return to your original career path at a later date. 2. For every job available, there will be only one successful job applicant. All the rest will be rejected. You must accept rejection & be willing to move on. It is ok to ask the reason you didn’t get a job, but don’t worry about it. 3. Depending on the field & the job you are seeking it could take up to several months to get a job. Don’t give up. 4. Show your initiative by following up. Don’t wait by the phone or email. It can be very frustrating. 5. There will be times when you will be down during your job search. Don’t isolate yourself by involving family & friends, join support groups.... etc. 6. It is always easier to find a job while you have one. Having an existing job keeps your confidence high, prevents you from panicking & helps you negotiate a higher starting salary. 7. If you don’t currently have a job, you should be a full-time job seeker. (source:jobsupermart.com)

Self-marketing and self-promotion makes all the difference when you’re looking for a job. When you are trying to sell yourself and impress a prospective employer, the first and most important tool you should use to your advantage is your resume and cover letter. Never make the mistake of using another person’s resume to make yours. The other person may not have the skills you have, or may not want to highlight certain aspects. By doing so you are only going to harm yourself and your prospects. You have to make the most of your resume and covering letter, and use it to highlight what you can offer to the company that your competitors cannot.

Think like an Employer To know what the perfect resume and cover letter should be like, it would be best to behave like an employer. This is more like role-playing, where you play the role of the employer and ask questions about the resume. This will give you an insight into what to expect at the interview. You get a chance to prepare yourself on the key qualities n employer looks for in an employee; qualities like a degree from a good school or university, good organizational skills to use in the work place, relevant experience in a particular industry and good writing skills. Go through a few resumes online, select the ones you most like and study them. Do not copy them exactly, but study them and then frame your resume to reflect the best of those resumes; it really does help to enact an almost real job hunt situation. This is what makes you ready to face the panel and sell your talents to get the best deal possible.

Sell like a Salesperson After you have finished playing the role of employer and understood what an employer needs, next play a hardcore salesperson. This is when you really start selfmarketing and self-promotion. Most people call it bragging, but you shouldn’t be scared by the prospect of self-marketing. It is very important that you do so, because this will help create a niche for yourself in the work place. Marketing is evident in every sphere of life. Study a few of the marketing concepts that are around you and think about which appeal to you and why and use these to sell your skills to the employer. The purpose of self-marketing is to capture attention, hold on it and convince the person that you are what the company needs. Adapted: www.articlesbase.com

The Philippine government’s ups and downs

T

he Philippines, amidst all other reasons, is world renowned for its ever eccentric government. Eccentric in this case may come as a positive or negative trait. The world has borne witness to the turbulences that has affected our country both positively and untowardly since 1521. Today, it is a sad reality that most of our By Adones Ralf Calledo people think that we have a dysfunctional Adones Ralf Calledo is currently a government due to fourth year high school student of our present state. Fili- Tagum City National Comprehensive pinos our exposed to High School and plans to take up constant political she- Nursing in college. nanigans which initially provide us with comic relief, but later on, we realize that these are actually tell-tale signs of the many faults of our government. However, before, our government’s reputation is entirely tarnished, let’s take a little trip down memory lane to see if our government deserves its currently shabby reputation. Our nation was one of the major innovators of Asia and once in the rank of the different flourishing Asian countries like Japan and Korea. Philippines is the first republic in Asia, being the pioneer in achieving independence by revolution led by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo, the first Philippine president. The first republic fell under the United States following the Philippine American War. Manuel L. Quezon was considered to be the first president by the United States and the first to win an election. The person who took the spot of the 10th president of the Philippines was someone who had a tremendous impact not just on our country but in a global level as well. Ferdinand Marcos’ greatest achievement was in the fields of infrastructure development and international diplomacy. Even with the succeeding administrations, like Fidel V. Ramos, and the controversial Joseph Ejercito Estrada who was charged with plunder, the problems we were faced with showed no signs of abating. And in our current Arroyo administration nothing of notable help to our sorry state has been generated. The same problems previous administrations have been faced with are still present today like, poverty, terrorism and corruption. Admittedly, our government’s history is not entirely a bed of roses. However, this doesn’t assure our country’s damnation. Our government, as history shows, has the capability to rebound even higher after being slammed down, and that is one trait that we can all take pride of. The deciding factor of our rise or decline just comes down to the people leading the government. Nobody can tell for sure when our current state will be alleviating, however, one fact remains constant: that whatever we’re going through now wont be forever, and hopes of a flourishing nation in the foreseeable future is always within us. This hope will undoubtedly serve as our driving force in helping each other build a better tomorrow.

BPO - from page 1)

Going hand in hand with manpower is the city’s facilities and infrastructure. There are six IT parks and buildings currently serving Davao’s BPO firms but this number will still increase as Ayala Corp. is currently building Abreeza – a business-slash-retail center that is set for completion soon. The city also has a sufficient number of 24hour commercial establishments that serve BPO employees round-the-clock. One factor that BPO employees are also happy to know about is the city’s low crime rate which can be attributed to the efficiency of the Davao City Police. The lower cost of living in Mindanao also reflects the competitive wage rates of BPO employees in the city. As BPO firms face the challenges of the global financial crisis, Davao is certainly becoming one of the best outsourcing destinations in the country.

London 2012 Olympics The Olympic Games in 2012 will take place in London from 27 July to 12 August. The Paralympic Games will be held from 29 August to 9 September that same year.

WHY LONDON?

In 2003, 9 different cities across the world submitted a bid to host the Olympics in 2012. That number was reduced to 5 - London, Madrid, Moscow, New York, and Paris - after much evaluation by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Although cities such as Madrid and Paris were the firm favourites, it was announced in 2005 that London won the bid, beating France by a small margin. The win for London signifies a great victory, making it the first city in the world to host the Olympic Games for the third time. The Paralympics in 2012 will be the 14th. Games dedicated to athletes with physical disabilities.

INSIDE STORY

The hunt for the origin of Swine Flu By Jade Zaldivar

As the swine flu virus continues to spread across the globe scientists are returning to Mexico. No one has identified ground zero. Just where or when the new strain of influenza first jumped from a pig and began infecting Jade Zaldivar is a graduate of Ateneo de Davao University people remains a scientific mystery. and is interested in filmmaking. She’s a freshman reporter for Sunstar Davao. Email her at jcravidlaz@yahoo.com.

In this photo taken April 27, 2009, Victor Calderon, General Director of Granjas Carroll de Mexico, stands next to pigs at one of the company’s farms on the outskirts of Xicaltepec in Mexico’s Veracruz state. Scientists are returning to La Gloria, a pig-farming village in the Veracruz mountains where Mexico’s earliest confirmed case of swine flu was identified. They hope to learn where the epidemic began by taking fresh blood samples from villagers and pigs, and looking for antibodies that could suggest exposure to previous swine flu infections.

A group of flu detectives headed to La Gloria, a pig-farming village in the Veracruz mountains where Mexico’s earliest confirmed case of swine flu was first identified. In early April, more than half of La Gloria’s 3,000 residents fell ill with flu symptoms – weeks before the virus was identified. The scientists hope to learn where the epidemic began by taking fresh blood samples from villagers and pigs. Observations on these samples’ antibodies could suggest exposure to previous swine flu infections. “It would be very interesting to look at the evolution of this virus and where or how easily the virus originates, re-assorts, and re-associates genes in an environment like La Gloria”, he said. Initially, Mexican health officials downplayed the outbreak. Many residents found it hard to breathe, burned with fever and ached all over. About 450 of the sickest residents were diagnosed with acute respiratory infections and were sent home with antibiotics and masks. By May, a 5-year-old boy was the only confirmed swine flu case among 43 villagers. By then, most other villagers had recovered, and the virus was gone from their systems. Some experts say it’s pointless to worry about what happened in La Gloria now that the swine flu virus has spread around the world. But others argue that a thorough investigation could be key to preventing future epidemics. Mexico has another reason to care: If it can somehow rule out the possibility that La Gloria’s pigs infected humans, then it can tell the world it wasn’t to blame for the epidemic that the never-before-seen H1N1 swine flu virus came from somewhere else. Dr. Carlos Arias, head of the flu detectives from the Biotechnology Institute and the veterinary school of the National Autonomous University in Mexico, told the Associated Press, “I cannot understand it. I could almost bet that there were more infections related to this virus in La Gloria.” Pigs like people get the flu, usually over the winter months. This new swine flu virus is unusual for it also has infected humans. La Gloria’s villagers thought the surrounding commercial pig farms, which they accuse of polluting their air and water with pig waste, sickened them.

Arias said his team would also examine environmental and sanitary conditions in homes where pigs are raised, and make recommendations to the Veracruz government aimed at reducing the potential for human infections. Meanwhile, certain personalities and groups are taking measures to defend the pork industry of Mexico in the face of the viral origin being in Mexico. Virginia-based Smithfield Foods, Inc., which jointly owns 72 farms in the surrounding La Gloria, said it carefully vaccinates its herd, and has found no signs or symptoms of any kind of swine flu in its herd or its employees anywhere in Mexico. Enrique Sanchez, a top official in Mexico’s Agriculture Department, which has defended the nation’s pork exporters from swine flu-inspired trade bans, said no sign of the new strain was found in mucous samples taken April 30 from pigs at Smithfield’s Mexican subsidiary, Granjas Carroll. But Arias argues that the blood samples from the infected residents and pigs were taken weeks after most villagers had recovered from their infections – perhaps too late for the virus to show up. “Even after a person or pig recovers, however, antibodies remain in their blood, evidence of the body’s immune response to the infection. And if swine flu antibodies are teased out of pigs in La Gloria, it would suggest, though not definitely prove, that the virus jumped from swine to humans in La Gloria.” Arias said. Other scientists believe the new strain could have been circulating in humans long before it reached La Gloria. The new strain’s ancestry has similarities to a pig farm in North Carolina in 1998. Scientists discovered that pig, bird and human viruses had combined in pigs to form a new strain of swine flu that also infected a handful of humans. Most of the current strain can be traced to about 10,000 generations of the virus ago. At some point along the way, it combined with other flu strains and jumped back into humans. Just when and where exactly may never be known, CDC officials have said. A federal government research team also plans to return to La Gloria, to review health records, interview residents and search for antibodies.

BOSSABALL: The new sport

Samba Referees

About bossaball

Bossaball for marketing purposes :

What is bossaball ?

Bossaball is a ball game between 2 teams. It's a mix of volleyball, football, gymnastics and capoeira. The court is a combination of inflatables and trampolines, divided by a net. It takes less than 45 minutes to set it all up and get ready to play...

How to play ?

The aim of bossaball is for each team to ground the ball on the opponent's field. Each team is entitled to a maximum of 8 contacts with the ball on its own field, meanwhile the trampoline jumper gains height to prepare a (spectacular) smash. Any body part can be used. Players can touch the ball only once with their hands, or double touch it with their feet and/or head.

What's the score ?

Once a team grounds the ball on the inflatables it gains 1 point. Scoring on the trampolines is worth 3 points. Hitting the bossawall (= the rings around the trampolines) doesn't count as a score, so the rally continues.

Bossaball referees have a whistle, a microphone, various percussion instruments and a dj set. They referee the game and they take it to a higher level. They're the Masters of Ceremony. They're Samba Referees. Samba referees are optional. They're not required to enjoy a game of bossaball. Bossaball combines elements of different sports on a pitch of trampolines and bouncy inflatables. The game can be set up on diverse locations : hotels, amusement parks, sports clubs, beach clubs, music festivals, fairs, summer camps, camping grounds, sales promotions, entertainment industry events, ski resorts, shopping centers, water parks, schools, discotheques...As a spectacular attraction, bossaball draws the crowds wherever it goes. Bossaball offers great opportunities for marketing and corporate branding. It attracts attention and often generates a large amount of media coverage including print, internet, radio and television, which makes bossaball an outstanding publicity support. Bossaball is a new sport, related to beach volley, beachsoccer, footvolley, capoeira, gymnastics and football ( soccer ). It's both a serious competitive sport and a fun game on trampolines.
