A total of 179 applicants took the chance to “work in paradise” during Sitel Palawan’s MAX Recruitment in Paradise on January 21 and 22.
Held at MAXhub El Nido at the Caltex Building in Barangay Corong-corong, El Nido, the recruitment was held to fill 35 openings for associates and two for coaches in a hotel and casino account.
At the end of the two-day activity, the recruitment team selected 44 candidates to join a special class, after which they will be scheduled for a final interview with the client.
Bea Palatino, Employee Engagement Specialist and MAXpert at Sitel Palawan, said that an advantage of working for Sitel Palawan is the job security in the BPO industry. “Our main selling point is that the contact center/BPO industry offers stable jobs,” she said.
One of the country’s top tourist destinations, El Nido has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, displacing many workers in the tourism industry. In May 2020, Sitel Palawan hired around 100 former tour guides and hotel professionals. The BPO leader also opened four MAXhubs, smaller contact centers designed to bring the workplace closer to associates.
The recruitment activity was run by a team composed of leaders and associates from MAXperts, MAX Insiders, Talent Acquisition and Sitel Academy:
MAXperts: Anton Sanchez, Micah Carino, Piper Ragusante, Alyka Alivia, Bea Palatino
MAX Insiders (MAXhub El Nido): Kristine Bacay, Valline Corpin, Rose Ann Tadifa, Buenalyn Bonbon, Jesson Ivan Mark Godinez, Julle Bryant Virtudazo, Jhoy Camot
Talent Acquisition and Sitel Academy: Dino Balofinos, Troi Yap, Bellyjon Lumogdang
Safety protocols, such as wearing of face masks and face shields and physical distancing, were observed during the recruitment activity.
