Jobert Boniel, fourth year Office Administration student, won third place in the Machine Shorthand Contest held during the 9th National Convention of the Court Stenographers Association of the Philippines (COSTRAPHIL). The activity was held in Dipolog City, Zamboanga del Norte last April 26-28.
Boniel is “the youngest and the only student in the competition working as a part-time court stenographer,” President Muhi declared in his monthly address to the PUP community. He commended Boniel, his teachers, and coach for bringing home this achievement.
“Congratulations to our very own, Mr. Jobert Boniel. He raised our flag! It is indeed a majestic moment for all of us. The whole OFAD community is proud of you, Jobert! You are truly an inspiration!” the PUP Junior Philippine Association of Secretaries and Administrative Professionals (JPASAP) shared in a Facebook post.
Stenography is a writing method in shorthand. The process uses symbols and abbreviations to represent letters, words, or phrases to write quickly. Since its establishment as Manila Business School in 1904, the Polytechnic University of the Philippines has been the premier training ground for office administration professionals, an important skill in the country’s competitive job market.
