American English’s partner NGO, Phil-Dutch Educational Scholarship Inc., is still open to new applications for deserving scholars who wish to take advantage of our business English and communication training programs. Filipinos who are either college degree holders or undergrads and are willing to learn skills essential for their desired careers are invited to sign up for the free training sessions once screened as qualified applicants.
In the Philippines, there are several career opportunities available but the sad truth is that only a few hires are reported. Business process outsourcing, media, hospitality and tourism jobs, for example, require English proficiency as these are the people-oriented type. Even technical and vocational jobs consider fluency in the English language a great asset, as they are in demand here and abroad. Government employees and those in very basic admin positions need constant usage of proper business English, should they deal with foreign visitors or investors or their companies have plans of expanding globally.
