Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines, 2012/08/21 - Leading IT services provider Pointwest continues its aggressive recruitment campaign and attends the third leg of this year’s Mapúa Career Expo, which connects Mapúa’s students with the Philippines’s top technology companies - Pointwest.com.ph.
Pointwest is set to participate in the Mapúa Career Expo on August 22, 2012, at the gymnasium of the Mapúa Institute of Technology, Intramuros campus. The event brings together the institute’s top students and graduates, and the Philippines’s leading Information Technology (IT) firms. Several outstanding Mapúa alumni are also expected to attend.
Organized by Mapúa’s Center for Career Services, the whole-day career expo is already on its third leg this year. It features a strong line-up of industry partners offering competitive job opportunities for both fresh graduates and professional hires.
Pointwest is a regular participant and sponsor of various job fairs across the Philippines, and joining Mapúa’s career expo is part of its extensive recruitment campaign. “We have been a cardinal sponsor of the Mapúa career expo for two years running,” says Joey Sergio, Pointwest’s Talent Acquisition Manager. “We see this as a worthy investment, because we believe in the caliber of Mapúa’s graduates.”
The company’s expansion plans, which were rolled out early this year, saw an entire floor added to one of its delivery centers in Metro Manila. This move is expected to create over 300 job opportunities, and Pointwest is expecting employee headcount to reach 1,000 at yearend.
Creating job opportunities in the Philippines has always been a top priority for Pointwest, being the largest 100% Filipino-owned IT firm in the country. It is also keen on helping Philippine academic institutions close the gap between what students learn in university and what the industry expects of them, thereby producing better, more competitive IT graduates. Presently, the company is an industry partner to numerous academic programs, including the internship program of the Asia Pacific College and the first German-Philippine Dual Study and Double Degree Bachelor Programme of the University of Santo Tomas.
