For the first time, the College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences (CFOS), UP Visayas (UPV) held a whole day job fair at the Pidlaoan Hall, CFOS, UPV Miagao campus on May 9, 2018.
Ms. Mary Grace Sedanza, faculty-in-charge of the job fair, said that more than 30 graduating students and recent graduates of UPV as well as from the provinces of Aklan, and Negros Occidental participated in the activity. Two employers were present: Charoen Pokhpond Foods Corporation (CPF) which interviewed 16 applicants for various positions and Bayer Philippines, Inc. that held a product presentation.
Sedanza said that they invited several employers for the event. Many signified to join the career fair, however, they could not make it to the chosen schedule of the organizers. She said that the College could not any more change the schedule as it was the only free time of the students before the exam.
CFOS will be organizing an annual career fair for students in collaboration with the Office of the Student Affairs to give opportunity for the students to connect with employers and chance to be hired long before graduation. This also gives participating companies access to large pool of qualified candidates from UP Visayas.
