Graduating students of Southville International School and Colleges (SISC) were given the opportunity to meet with potential employers during the institution’s annual Career Fair held last June 22, 2022, via Zoom. They were able to network with businesses to explore their options and identify professional opportunities that fit their individual set of skills and interests.
Participating employers included Coca-Cola Beverages Philippines, Alveo Land, SGS Philippines, Ayala Land Premier, and Ayala Malls from the property, manufacturing, and certification sector; Asia United Bank, Bank of Commerce, and Maybank Philippines from the banking industry; Edusuite, Equus Software, Accenture Philippines, and Shopee Philippines from the software and technology field; and Korn Ferry, Cognizant Philippines, CapMan Consulting, and Shearwater Health Advisors from the consultancy and business process outsourcing profession.
A highlight of the event was the informational sessions where students gain advice on how to advance their careers. Dr. Nancy De Guia, SISC’s Dean of Tourism, talked about the Tier competencies needed to be successful on a given job while Mr. Jonathan U. Caritativo, Department of Labor and Employment’s (DOLE) Senior Labor & Employment Officer, spoke about Labor Laws and Employee Relation Requirements that impact a person’s career.
The career fair was spearheaded by SISC’s Counseling and Psychological Services Department in partnership with Prosple Philippines, a careers and education technology company whose software is used by leading organizations, associations and universities across the Asia-Pacific region, the United Kingdom and North America to connect students with employment and education opportunities.
