The Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) recently organized a successful Virtual Career and Internship Fair, providing students with valuable networking and internship prospects amidst the ongoing pandemic. Held on May 5, 2023, the event took place via Zoom and was livestreamed via the PUP Career Center Facebook Page.
Participating industries ranged from manufacturing and education, to logistics and financial services, with employers sharing insights about their company background, culture, internship processes, and requirements during the plenary session.
In breakout rooms, industry recruiters engaged with non-graduating and graduating students, fostering meaningful connections and exploring potential internship opportunities. Despite the virtual format, over 300 students from various courses participated, along with 14 industry partners.
Engr. Florinda H. Oquindo, Director of Alumni and Career Development Office and Assistant to the Vice President for Student Affairs and Services, emphasized the importance of expanding networks and gaining industry knowledge beyond the classroom, highlighting how the pandemic has taught students to adapt and strive for success.
The event served as a testament to the resilience and determination of PUP’s students in pursuing their career goals despite the challenges posed by the pandemic.
