The Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP), through the Alumni Relations and Career Development Office (ARCDO), recently held its first face-to-face job fair titled, “2023 Career Fest” after a two-year hiatus. The event took place in the PUP Gymnasium from February 20-22, 2023, attracting over a thousand students and featuring 41 industry partners.
Open to both graduating and non-graduating students, the fair provided employment and internship opportunities. In addition to exploring job prospects, students attended a career development seminar where various topics such as resume writing, power dressing, interview tips, personal branding, and more were discussed by industry representatives.
The fair’s success was attributed to the support of enthusiastic industry partners and the implementation of strict health regulations to ensure everyone’s safety amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. PUP expressed gratitude to organizations such as DOLE, PESO, and other PUP Offices for their assistance in organizing the event.
“We must put in place processes and stringent health regulations to ensure that our students, industry partners representatives, and other stakeholders won’t contract COVID-19 and they can return to their families safely; hosting this activity now is completely different from all the pre-pandemic Job Fairs we conducted. Additionally, we appreciate DOLE, PESO, and other PUP Offices for their support throughout the preparation process and up until the activity’s success” said Engr. Florinda Oquindo, ARCDO Director and Assistant to the Vice President for Student Affairs and Services.
