UP Career Assistance Program
The UP Career Assistance Program College of Business Administration-School of Economics, often abbreviated as UP CAP CBA-SE, is a service organization committed to providing students from the UP College of Business Administration and the UP School of Economics with the assistance they need to launch their careers after college.
The entire organization is composed of 100 CAP members all devoted toward servicing more than 400 BS Business Administration, BS Business Administration and Accountancy, BS Business Economics, and BS Economics graduates during an academic year.
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.
