CIBT Establishes Job Placement Call Centers in the Philippines
September 20th, 2010 CNW Group: CIBT Education Group Inc. (NYSE AMEX: MBA) (TSX: MBA) (“CIBT” or the “Company”) reports that it has devised plans and is establishing a full scale job placement call center in Manila, Philippines.
The call center will be an integral part of CIBT operations to serve its subsidiary schools: CIBT School of Business in China, Sprott-Shaw group of colleges and KGIC international colleges in Canada. The call center will actively seek out potential employers to showcase the Company’s graduating students and match them up with prospective career opportunities.
Call center operators will contact the human resources departments of all multinational companies to ascertain their hiring needs and then follow up with a list of video resumes professionally prepared by CIBT to showcase the Company’s graduates. This is a cost effective way to provide additional value to students studying within the CIBT Group of schools by bridging the gap between the learning and working sectors and making it easier for employers to fulfill their hiring needs.
Our existing campuses in the Philippines will also provide call-center training to our operators, while generating employment opportunities for graduates of our call center operator program. By utilizing the cost effective labor and resources in the Philippines to create employment opportunities for our graduates in China and North America, we are adding value to our students as well as to our schools across the system.
“As part of our ongoing effort to assist our students in finding jobs post-graduation, the Company is actively investing in infrastructure to fulfill our commitment to being a results-oriented institution”, commented Toby Chu, Vice Chairman and CEO of CIBT. “We feel that by investing in the future of our graduates, we are investing directly into the future of our schools and fulfilling the objective of meeting our students’ needs from ‘Enrollment to Employment'”.
