JUMP START YOUR CAREER

4th Year Guidance Counselor
As part of the Career Placement Program for graduating
students of our school, the Guidance and Counseling Center
organized its yearly one-day job fair last January 30, 2007.
This year's job fair, entitled, “Job Fair 2007: Jump Start Your Career “ was held at the Mother Consuelo
Barcelo Auditorium. It was attended by thirty eight (38) companies, all of which pre-registered with us for the event. PLDT, Cardinal Santos Hospital, Banco de Oro, E-telecare,
Sun Cellular, Pure Gold and Kia Motors were just some of the top companies and institutions which highlighted the affair.
IBM Phils., with its Campus Program, facilitated the on-site testing for the students. This was held at the E-learning
Room located at the Gregor Mendel Science Center from 9:00am-12:00nn.
Ribbon cutting for the company exhibit at the Mother Consuelo Barcelo Auditorium was headed by Mr. C.Y. Yorgos Lam,
Guidance Director and Mr. Rudy Garcia, Dean of the Student Affairs. In this event, the students had the opportunity to submit
their resumes and undergo initial interviews with the human resource representatives from the different companies. Eventually, potential applicants were screened for pre-selection.
It was also fortunate that the Social Security System (SSS) was able to join the event so that our students got the
chance to get their SSS numbers hassle-free without going to their office.
Overall, the event was a success. Thanks to the unending cooperation of the participating companies, sponsors like
Mc Donald's which donated the tarpaulin for the event's advertisement, our students, faculty members, deans and school administrators.
And to all graduating students, may you have a meaningful career-journey. And yes, that was a good jump start!
