Hallo Hallo Job's participation in the University of the Philippines' 27th annual University Job Fair (UJF) is a union of many firsts, as the business indexing site brought some of its trusted partners to provide career opportunities to graduating Iskolars ng Bayan during the semester-long program's main event held on March 28 to 31 at Ang Bahay ng Alumni in UP-Diliman.
Among the companies that we have invited are Tronix, Robinsons Supermarket, and Compass Manpower, which all presented job vacancies from their respective organizations along with openings within our own. Joining forces with them allowed us to offer a diverse list of positions while amplifying our support for the university's goal of assisting the students transition from college life to the professional world. Just like our attendance in UJF 2017, this collaboration is a first for Hallo Hallo Job, and a favorable one that we hope to replicate in future projects.
Shaped to Serve
As the theme for the 2017 edition of UJF has been “Shaped to Serve,” the activities centered on prepping the seniors to join the workforce while keeping their sense of public service alive. These include mock job interviews and networking opportunities with government bodies, non-government organizations, private companies, and respected experts in their chosen fields. Supporting these events were a hundred industry-leading firms and top employers in the country, including Hallo Hallo Job, which stood as a minor sponsor of the recruitment convention.
Tech is the way to go
Out of the various companies present in UJF 2017, tech-oriented ones were viewed as the most lucrative by Iskos and Iskas. Charlene, a 19-year-old UP student seeking internships, related that tech companies are “at the forefront of the digital age.”
The Hallo Hallo Job representatives who manned our booth shared the same sentiments, noting that businesses under the IT sect are the most promising, thanks to the increasing need for process automation in all industries.
“With less paperwork, there are less mistakes,” Hallo Hallo Job Marketing Researcher Kim Maglasang reasoned out the rise of digitized tasks. Our company's Sales and Marketing Manager, Shiela Vidanes, seconded by pointing out social media management as another highly in-demand expertise both here and abroad.
Adding proof to these statements are the tech-related vacancies that constantly remain among the active postings on Hallo Hallo Job
