Seven out of the 45 mentees who graduated from call center training were hired by different business process outsourcing (BPO) companies even before they marched on October 14, 2015 (Wednesday) at 1:00 PM at the Saret Covered Court. It was previously published in a related article (see link below) that 36 enrolled in the 100-hour course facilitated by Asian Foundation for Entre-Pinoy, Incorporated, an institution accredited by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). During the first few days of the learning process, however, nine more were permitted to enlist.
All 45 of them were given the opportunity to share what they learnt from the classes and their experiences (if any) in job-hunting.
Barangay Secretary Edwin P. Misolas who delivered the opening remarks reminded the graduates to give back to God the blessings He had showered upon them and to pray for the people who served as channels for them to achieve these blessings. He specifically referred to Asian Foundation for Entre-Pinoy, Inc., TESDA, 2nd District Councilor Estrella “Star” C. Valmocina, Captain John “Jojo” M. Abad, Kagawads Ernesto “Ernie” S. Custodio and Filomena “Luming” V. de Guzman. Bgy. Sec. Misolas also reiterated to the customer service representative wannabes the importance of saving some for the rainy days no matter how huge their income would be.
Capt. Abad, in his speech as guest-of-honor, congratulated the job aspirants and challenged them to land in an employment as soon as possible.
Also in the event to greet the hopefuls and hand their certificates of completion were Coun. Valmocina, Kgds. de Guzman, Custodio, Jhorwin D. Santos and Roberto “Bobby” B. Miras.
Staff of Kgds. Luisito “Tata” Z. Ludovica, Edgar “Junjun” S. Macario, Jr. and Charlie O. Mangune represented their respective officials.
Kgd. de Guzman gladly closed the ceremonies with a promise of conducting more TESDA-accredited training in the very near future.
