The Career Assistance Program is a service organization committed to helping BS BA, BS BAA, BS BE, and BS Econ students get good jobs and fulfilling careers as they leave the relative safety of the University to face the challenges of the real world.
CAP seeks to enable graduates and the corporate world to interact, know each other, and address each other's needs. CAP is the vital link that connects these two different worlds so that, together, they each can achieve their goals and live out their dreams.
To fulfill its objectives, CAP has numerous activities in store for the soon-to-be job seeker. We compile and print materials which deal with job-seeking methods, resume formats, cover letters, and the like.
With the assistance of resource persons from top companies, we conduct mock interviews, and other simulations to familiarize students with current hiring procedures and practices. CAP also publishes a compendium of the resumes of the participants, copies of which are sent to partner firms seeking new hires.
But our objective is not just to prepare the graduate for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Ultimately, CAP's success is based on the fulfilling careers that our participants will select. Currently, the entire organization is composed of more than 100 CAP members, all devoted to servicing the more than 350 BS Business Administration, BS Business Administration and Accountancy, BS Business Economics, and BS Economics graduates.
The Board of Directors
The Board of Directors provides direction for CAP. The Chairperson acts as the overall head of the organization, while the three directors guide their respective departments. The Board ensures the success of events and projects through an effective and collaborative leadership.
The Logistics Department coordinates all activities internal to CAP. It is responsible for the manning of all activities and other event day miscellany like food and venue preparations. It ensures that graduating students are informed of the event date and location through SMS, e-mail, and room-to-room announcements.
The Marketing Department is the revenue-generating arm of the organization. It hunts, screens, and coordinates with company sponsors who participate in CAP's events in exchange for either financial or in-kind support.
While Logistics handles the legwork of event publicity, the Publications Department is in charge of all of CAP's printed and online publications. This includes the design and printing of posters, maintainance of the website, and production of all of CAP's principal publications: the Opus, KAPI, TAJA handbook, and Souvenir Program. Other projects include the production of IDs, directories, calling cards, t-shirts, certificates and tokens for CAP.
