CEBU, PHILIPPINES - February 15, 2013 - Alliance Software, Inc. welcomed some 74 students and faculty from four (4) top universities in Cebu City for it's very first Career Day entitled "It's an Open House! Career Day @ Alliance" which was hosted in the Alliance corporate office at the Cebu Business Park.
"We wanted the students and teachers to get to know Alliance more. And what better way than to open our doors to them," said Alliance's CEO, Robert Cheng.
The guests were toured around the company's office with Alliance engineers who served as guides, who included Vhen, Joseph and Dea, alumni of USC Talamban; Alistair and Michelle, alumni of UP Cebu; and Jenelyn, an alumni of CITU.
Five (5) tour stopovers were set-up to showcase the benefits and opportunities in a career in Alliance, including Nihonggo Classes, Alliance Advanced Project Manager Program, Career Management Program, Operations and Work Style, and Projects and also to simulate a work day at Alliance.
The invited students were passers of the Technical and Final Interview held last January 2013.
Participating schools were University of the Philippines - Cebu (UP Cebu), University of San Carlos (USC), University of San Jose Recoletos (USJR), and Cebu Institute of Technology University (CITU). The activity was capped off with afternoon cocktails and a series of responses from the tour participants.
"The turnout and feedback from the students and teachers were quite positive. This is an event we want to continue." said Alliance's COO, Sherwin Yu.
"Thank you very much to Alliance for inviting us here. This is actually the first time that I have attended an activity like this and I think that this is a great way of encouraging students to join this company. We had a lot of fun in our group. In fact, I was joking that I myself am excited to be part of a company like this, in particular, to be part of the "confidential projects" which to me sounds really exciting and challenging. This activity was able to expose the students to the kind of environment that you have here in Alliance and the different career paths that they can take. It can help them make a decision whether or not to join this company. I am personally happy to see a lot of former students here. Some of them have started their careers here and have grown together with the company and I think it is good indicator of the kind of working environment they have here in Alliance." said Ms. Cherry Lyn Sta. Romana, Dean of the College of Computer Studies, CIT University
