Huawei Hosts 2021 Career Fair to Provide Bigger, Bolder Future for New Graduates
Seeking to attract local talent and revitalize the labor market, Huawei Philippines this year launched a series of virtual campus recruitments under the theme ‘A Bigger, Bolder Future’, in partnership with leading universities in the Philippines .
Almost 500 students from the University of Mapua and other educational institutions in the Philippines attended the online recruitment event, hoping to start a career in the ICT industry and be part of the Huawei’s growing local talent pool.
In her welcoming speech to attendees, Jade Cao, Human Resources Director of Huawei Philippines, said Huawei aims to develop Filipino ICT talent and train them to global standards to “make the local talent ecosystem more glorious. “.
“We believe in a long-term collaboration and partnership with Mapua. In the past, many new Mapua graduates have joined Huawei and have already become key Huawei personnel and fulfilled Huawei’s vision and mission, ”Cao said, noting that Mapua remains Huawei’s main source of engineers. .
Huawei Philippines’ partnership with Mapua University began in 2015 with the Huawei Seeds for the Future program. Since then, Huawei has launched several successful programs and events, including the Huawei ICT Academy, the Huawei ICT Competition and the Huawei Sales Elite Challenge in 2019. Last year, Huawei opened its scholarship program to Mapua students.
Mapua graduates who are now working at Huawei Philippines are hoping that more of their fellow Mapuans will seize the opportunity to work at Huawei and gain first-hand experience in their field of study.
Sharing his professional background, John Michael De Jesus, a Mapua electronic engineering graduate and now a radio frequency engineer at Huawei, said he first heard of Huawei when he was in high school.
“I was looking for 3G, 4G, LTE, then I came across a leading global telecommunications provider, which is Huawei. Then I got interested in joining the company when I was an undergrad student because I was studying mobile communications, and it was a major topic and I was passionate about it, ”said De Jesus during the event.
He encouraged his Mapuan colleagues to join Huawei because he “had found a better version” of himself within the company in terms of career.
For Christian Joshua Ulaye, a graduate in computer engineering and now a cloud network engineer, he was motivated to apply to Huawei because of the experience of his Mapuan colleagues.
“I first heard about Huawei when they went to Mapua for a career fair, and I became interested in joining the company because of the good experiences I heard from of my Mapuan colleagues working here, ”he said.
Ulaye added that after being hired he realized there was a lot to learn in his trade. He described his work as “challenging but rewarding”.
The Career Fair with Mapua University is the first in a series of online recruitment activities on campuses in Huawei Philippines this month.
