Pointwest Brings Career Opportunities to Mapua
December 19, 2016
Pointwest brought career opportunities to students and alumni of Mapua Institute of Technology at its Career Expo 2016 held on Tuesday, 15 November 2016.
The Mapua community once again gathered for the quarterly Career Expo event, seeking job opportunities in the many participating companies. Gwynne Andal, Senior Talent Acquisition Associate and Bernadette Magmanlac, Talent Management Specialist of Pointwest accommodated more than a hundred aspirants looking to work with the company.
Aside from employment, internship applications were also a contributing factor to the number of registration. Most of those who registered were from programs like BS Information Technology, followed by BS Electronics and Communications Engineering as well as BS Computer Engineering.
Although reaching out to IT communities in the academe is somehow expected from one of the largest IT-BPM Filipino companies, Ms. Andal added that what made this 4th Leg of the Mapua Career Expo more interesting is the diversity of students from different programs who wanted to take their chances at joining Pointwest.
“Some Marketing graduates also approached the booth to check if they are qualified or would be welcome to apply. [It’s] An unusual route for Marketing students to venture into the field of IT” Gwynne Andal, Senior Talent Acquisition Associate
This implies that the opportunities to be expected in IT goes beyond the usual specialists but also opens up possibilities and opportunities for non-technical and semi-technical personnel like Marketing graduates.
