A career fair was conducted by the University of Southeastern Philippines (USeP) – Career and Alumni Center (CAC), in partnership with the University Guidance and Testing Office (UGTO), on April 26, 2019 at the University Gymnasium and Cultural Center.
Among the speakers who graced the event are Dr. Mary Ann C. Cacananta, CAC Director, who delivered the welcome remarks, and Dr. Lourdes C. Generalao, University President, who gave the participants an inspiring message.
In Dr. Cacananta’s words of welcome, she said that the fair is a bridge for the graduating students and alumni to a successful career.
Meanwhile, her journey as a student and as an applicant before was highlighted in the University President’s speech.
“The process of application is not instant. You have to experience setbacks and sometimes heartbreaks, but never give up, always do your best and God will do the rest,” the USeP President said.
“Finding employment in a field that you are passionate about is just like finding a needle in a haystack,” Dr. Generalao stressed.
The activity was participated in by the graduating students and alumni from all USeP campuses; private industry partners from the Engineering and Manufacturing, Sales and Marketing, Technological and Technical industries, as well as Education and Administration departments based in Davao, Cebu and Manila; and some government agencies such as the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Public Employment Service Office (PESO), Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), Pag-Ibig, Philhealth, Social Security System (SSS), and Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR).
Ms. Divinagracia G. Lagura, Career Development Officer, shared some of the preparations of the CAC for the annual event. Fifty-three (53) companies participated in the career fair. Prior to the activity, the CAC also conducted programs and workshops on crafting winning resumes and acing interviews.
