The theme for this year’s PNS Career Day was inspired by the PHINMA Human Resources’ Wellness Program. PHINMA HR has been encouraging all employees to sharpen their skills and develop their other talents through the Self-Improvement Program. Being part of the PHINMA Family, the PNS Scholars are also highly encouraged to develop their abilities and skills.
Based on the scholars’ interests, workshops on calligraphy, Krav Maga, dance, and painting were organized by the PHINMA Foundation Team. Along with these interest-based sessions, the graduating batch of teachers and engineers also had their job application and career planning workshops.
The calligraphy session was facilitated by Ms. Eliza Joyce Luga
Krav Maga Philippines, Inc., the local representative of Krav Maga Global held a basic self-defense workshop. This session was facilitated by Mr. Ricky Ganasias.
Using their smartphones, the PNS Scholars were taught the basics of photography by PHINMA employee volunteer, Attorney Jonathan Jo.
PNS alumna, Joemarie Teasdale, facilitated the modern dance workshop for the scholars.
Some of the scholars also enjoyed their basic painting workshop headed by Mr. Matthew Talaga.
PNS alumni, Ronnalie Asto-Coco and Curt Marvin Cruz, along with Teach for the Philippines gave an orientation to the graduating batch of PNU Scholars about pursuing careers in the public schools.
Employee volunteers from PHINMA Properties, Liza Arceo and Engineer MJ Menor, oriented the graduating batch of UP Engineering Scholars about the job application process and different careers for engineers in the private sector.
