Opportunities (part 3)
September 15, 2011 2 Comments
Allow me to share with you how I got into Aboitiz. I was not able to share this one in class because I either forgot about it, or perhaps forgotten about it (did I just say it again?)
Ilijah Hermogenes happened to ask me during the summer break about whom to approach about the OJT program of Aboitiz Equity Ventures. It so happened that CAS Dean Teoddie Dumam-ag actually told Ilijah’s group about that opportunity. I would not have known of those plans had it not been for her. Therefore, thank you, Jang.
The next thing I knew was that I found myself making my resume. At that time I NEVER had plans of applying for Aboitiz (though I was a delegate of the 5th Aboitiz Future Leaders Business Summit, and that those who are part of the summit are given first priority in training, and hopefully, employment, within the group) because I was fixated about having a job in the media.
Call it God’s blessing for me because I planned to apply for a local newspaper as correspondent (and if not, as intern), but I wonder why I did not succeed in the first place. Whatever it is, I am thankful to God for allowing it to happen. It might be a manifestation of some other things.
I just applied. After talking with my contact there inside AEV, I confirmed that it was indeed Ms Carol who told Dean Teoddie about the opening for OJT for Corporate Communication. Then, I submitted my resume, and the rest is history.
I kept on waiting for weeks until I got the confirmation because I had to keep on calling them because I would also want to know ahead if I got it or not. Remember I am graduating this semester and I have to be ahead of the race all the time.
More of plans and sharing them in the next post.
