UST Angelicum College is one of the colleges and universities who joined the recent 29th Career Consultation and Guidance Fair with the theme, “Quality Education Matters” last September 17 & 18, 2019 at the World Trade Center, Manila. The event was organized by International Education Specialists (Inter-Ed), with the aim of providing guidance to SHS students for their education and career choices. This also offered opportunity to schools to present their academic offerings and student organizations.
Forty-two Philippine universities and colleges participated in this year’s Inter-Ed event. Some of these institutions were Adamson University, Assumption College, Ateneo de Manila University, Centro Escolar University, Colegio de San Juan de Letran, Lyceum of the Philippines University, Malayan Colleges, Mapua University, MINT College, Miriam College, San Beda University, Southville International School and Colleges, University of the Philippines, and the University of Santo Tomas. International schools also took part in the event where students were able to inquire for scholarship programs and academic offerings they may avail.
Students were able to partake in the seminars where school representatives were able to present statistics on SHS tracks and alignment with college courses and specific career growth areas. This aimed to assist SHS students in making wiser decisions on several career options.
In this year’s career fair, all participating students were required to register online prior to the event to generate their QR code. This was used by the exhibitors to capture the data of students interested in their institution or programs.
