Tech graduates in high demand in jobs market

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — Demand for tech professionals and web developers has increased significantly amid the coronavirus pandemic, Makati-based IT school iAcademy said.

Bennett Tanyag, iAcademy’s web development program chair, said traditional businesses and/or small players have realized the need to digitize their services and create a presence online to survive in these challenging times.

He said this has resulted in the boom in demand for web developers to create, design and maintain websites for businesses across different industries.

According to companies in the software industry, only 55 percent of the computing talent demand is being met. This deficit is even expected to increase within the next few years unless more people are trained in the field of computing and web development, iAcademy said.

As of March, there were over 12,000 jobs available in the Philippines according to jobstreet.com that were looking for IT specialists, software engineers and web developers.

Known for its 96 percent placement rate, iAcademy assured that its web development program is the answer to the demand of the industry, boasting of its state of the art facilities that cover almost 200 high-end computers for students.

iAcademy gives proper importance to real world applications of theories learned in the classroom. This is met through iAcademy’s internship program which gives students 960 hours of work experience with the support of its over 200 industry partners.
