Bulacan City, Philippines | 11 March 2016: Trailblazer’s STI College and JPMAP gain yet another huge advantage over other colleges, by hosting the Philippines first American-developed and presented certification-seminar series for two sold out, standing room only crowds in Balagtas, Bulacan, Philippines.
In today’s expanding and highly-competitive educational and employment markets, savvy PH-college students are becoming more aware of the value of being both marketable and competitive. Students are seeking colleges which offer extra-curricular, real-world educators and studies –and they are willing to pay over-tuition for them. Graduates who possess mentorship, OJT, volunteer and internship experience –while still in college- are able to ‘hit the ground running’ once they graduate. Studies show, these ambitious, well-rounded graduates are employed faster, earn more and ultimately live a more financially-secure life. In addition, competitive companies are looking to recruit these top-tier students before they hit the workforce; possibly working for the competition.
A very-progressive, Philippines top college launched an American hosted, US-developed and real-life, true-experience curriculum: Philippines Marketing Success 101 US Certifying Seminar, part of The Philippines Magazine International’s Success Seminar Series. The preliminary seminar, focused on how-to be marketable, competitive and how-to ‘build’ a successful personal resume. Top Attendees, may even be selected for PH MAG Affiliate Scholarships, OJT opportunities and employment referrals to mid-level and top companies seeking stellar applicants. Students are encouraged to ‘Be marketable, have a vision for yourself…get your resumes ready’ by US Host Kareem Jackson.
In an aggressive effort to better prepare Philippines college students for the “real-world” of opportunities; student body officials, professors, parents, varsity athletes, sponsors and recruiters demand higher-learning, real-life, international-centric, educators and special engagements to introduce students to international ideals and ultimately be more competitive in the workforce.
STI College, with JPMAP (Junior People Management Association of the Philippines) Balagtas Chapter answered the call with the debut of a trail-blazing, American-hosted, 200+ attendees, extra-curricular seminar and subsequent US certification.
Seminar Advisor, Professor Ceceiro Cruz, arrived with PH Power 100 IT Guru and CIO Joselito Tiongson, who coordinated the event, and mentored the Student IT Team and award-winning American entrepreneur, US Executive Publisher of The Philippines Magazine International, Philippines’ American International Lifestyle Ambassador and Host of LIVE! ON THE SET, Kareem Jackson who hosted the seminar: along with event producers and PH co-hosts Gemela Maranan, Jerome Gesmundo and JPMAP STI College, Balagtas Chapter President, Benjie C. Dela Peña. The US Host, enjoyed one-on-one interaction with students, real-Filipino food during the break (per his request), and all of the Filipino hospitality, STI College is known for.
Special Guest attendees included, but were not limited to, Dr. Nilo Francisco, President of PMAP Bulacan 2016, Dean of College of Management and Technology, Centro Escolar University Malolos, with Professor Louie Christopher B. Quinay, Elaine Queen Bolipata, Business and Management Coordinator, Professor Jimmy Moral Jr., and Professor Benson Parinas.
The MARKETING 101 Success Seminar was an eye-opening, interactive introduction to –successful– international marketing. STI College: formerly known as Systems Technology Institute, STI is the largest network of for-profit information technology based colleges in the Philippines, featured the countries first, Philippines-specific to the United States market(s) seminar(s) at their Balagtas campus. STI offers a curriculum including business studies, computer science, education, engineering and health care; acclaimed, as the second largest IT-based educational institution in Asia.
At STI, top-students see the need to begin their ‘personal resumes’ with extra-curricular, real-life, applied-studies courses and experiences early; well-before their graduation. As a top-tier college, Philippines-based and International companies alike name STI graduates as one of their ‘short listed’ go-to colleges.
“I dream of being an entrepreneur someday…to be successful in the auto industry. I know marketing and marketability can make that happen for me.” stated STI Varsity Player –Von John Rafols in a Ask Kareem Q&A Session.
“I work in my family construction business now, however, my dream is to lead a big company someday…perhaps this knowledge can help me to build my own, family-business into one.” expressed -Benjie C. Dela Peña. Other students expressed interest in pursuing medical, IT, education, law, restaurant proprietorship and media.
“My goal is to be successful as a law student…to lead a top organization and give opportunity to many people.” stated -Sherijan Ivan Dela Cruz. Cruz was the seminars most-engaged pupil and had over 20-minutes of Q&A with Kareem Jackson.
“It was my first time to ever be in an American or foreign seminar, hosted by an American educator…the experience was invaluable! I’ve got a lot of work to do…” -Mark Anthony Dela Cruz in an interview with The American Press, after the seminar.
“I’m so happy. I was allowed to intern at the seminar at STI College…being around everyone is inspiring and I am proud to be able to use the experience for my personal growth and future resume.” Louis Philippe Condat, Junior High School Audio Visual & Multi-Media Intern
After the prayer and STI College Anthem, each attendee was required to close their eyes, envision their future selves, then, write-down their goal, and some even stated it out loud to their peers. A commitment-exercise designed to teach visualization, planning and inherent action.
First time techniques used in progressive certification-seminars such as Success Seminars, give STI students yet another unique advantage when seeking employment or to venture into business ownership and entrepreneurship. Top Philippines companies select STI graduates, due to their uncanny ability to ‘start’ with more hands-on, practical experience and savvy.
