Metro Manila College (MMC), a TESDA-accredited private educational institution organizes its annual job fair for senior high school and college graduating students in their campus gymnasium last March 17, 2018 where Hallo Hallo Job (HHJ) together with over 20 other companies joined the career event.
The program officially started with a career orientation. The first one came from a representative from More than Jobs where he talked about pre-employment preparation, the tips on how to get hired, how to create their resume and how to win an interview.
The school’s Guidance Councilor also talked about the in-demand jobs in the country as recommended by the Department of Labor and Employment and Commission on Higher Education. The third speaker, on the other hand, tackled about career advancement programs such as master’s and doctoral degrees; and lastly, is about their image, on how they should carry themselves during interviews.
MMC, formerly known as Novaliches Academy, has been committed to providing quality, holistic education and training for aspiring educators where in fact, they already produced passers in the Board Licensure Examination for Professional Teachers (BLEPT).
The college provides a comprehensive K-12 basic education program as well as higher education programs in the field of education, criminology and commerce; for senior high school program, Academic, Technical-Vocational-Livelihood (TVL) and Sports. Other offerings include Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) training in housekeeping and front office services and Licensure Exam for Teachers (LET) review classes.
As part of organizing their career placement event, the school came up with the list of companies who participated in terms of their offered courses; they decided to tap the associations where their students have higher possibility of being employed. They also invited the Philippine Coast Guard since one of their strength courses is Criminology.
Since more than 1,300 senior high school and 288 college students will be marching on April 14 and 20 to earn a diploma, Ms. Catherine Albano, MMC Guidance and Counselling Coordinator said that they are looking forward to see their students getting employed in good companies. “Nilu-look after namin na they would become more confident and ‘yung maging prepared sila i-face yung career world and maging ready in being professional.”
