MAKATI CITY – Education technology startup Edukasyon.ph and the Philippine Business for Education has signed a Memorandum of Agreement to seal its joint commitment to provide industry-based information on careers for high school students through the "Career Conversations" section of the website www.edukasyon.ph.
“We are excited with this partnership with the Philippine Business for Education that will help in delivering job market and education information needed to make informed career and education decisions. Through these joint efforts with industry associations, we believe that we are able to guide students in what industries expect from them as jobseekers and what they need to know to prepare for these jobs,” said Linartes M. Viloria, CEO, Edukasyon.ph.
Edukasyon.ph is a website (www.edukasyon.ph) that empowers students by giving them choice, advice and convenience in discovering, selecting and applying to the school that will best equip them for their dream career. The Philippine Business for Education maintains FutureYou, a free online career exploration tool that provides you information needed to be able to get the right opportunity where a student’s passions, skills, and interests can be turned into a great job and a great future. The two sites have agreed to combine its online efforts through Edukasyon.ph’s Career Conversations.
“Deciding on what you want to be when you grow up is a difficult decision a high school student has to make. Without the right industry information on careers and the world of work, students will find themselves confused on the education they need to have to prepare for their dream careers. Through these collaborative efforts with the Philippine Business for Education we can deliver to students job information that they can understand and appreciate for better career decision making,” said Henry Motte-Muñoz, Founder, Edukasyon.ph.
Under the partnership students can check out Edukasyon’s Career Conversations portal (http://edukasyon.ph/en/career_conversations) where they can find a variety of careers they can choose and read about. This section includes hard-to-fill and most popular jobs, job descriptions, entry-level salaries for these jobs and the requisite education for these jobs.
“It is our dream that every Filipino student gets a quality and relevant education that leads to a career. This partnership brings us closer to realizing that dream and ensuring that young people get better chances to employment,” said Henry Motte-Muñoz, Founder, Edukasyon.ph.
At the joint site, students can discover the recommended senior high tracks, college courses, and technical vocational education for these selected careers. To give them first hand information on preparations for their career journey in these jobs, students can watch Career Conversation videos of professionals in different industries.
