HUMSS Students Participate in Volunteer Job Interviews and Receive Orientation from Workplace Partners

BACOLOD CITY – Senior high school students of La Consolacion College Bacolod’s Humanities and Social Sciences strand (HUMSS) participated in a volunteer job interview and received orientation from their workplace partners as part of their work immersion program.

The students, who are taking up the Creative Portfolio course, were deployed to various partner organizations such as the Negros Occidental Provincial Historical Council, Orange Gallery, and Virlanie Foundation among others.

During the first week of their deployment, the students underwent a job interview with the workplace partners to assess their interests and skills. They were also oriented on the organization’s mission, vision, and values as well as the responsibilities and expectations of volunteers.

“Participating in the job interview allowed me to reflect on my interests and skills and helped me identify the type of work that I want to do in the future,” said Mary Jane Reinhart Moncera, one of the HUMSS students.

After the job interview and orientation, the students were assigned to specific tasks and projects that would enhance their skills and knowledge in their chosen field.

“I am excited to start working on the projects assigned to me. It’s a great opportunity to learn new things and apply what I have learned in school,” said Blad Biugos, another HUMSS student.

The work immersion program is an integral part of the Creative Portfolio course, which aims to provide students with hands-on experience in their chosen field and integrate research and production in the development of their portfolio.

“We are proud of our HUMSS students for their active participation in the work immersion program. We believe that this experience will prepare them for their future careers and help them develop a strong work ethic,” said Mr. Rejay Alvarado, the subject area chairperson of HUMSS.

The work immersion program will run for 80 hours with a 8-hour duty per week on Wednesdays or Fridays from March to May 2023. The students will also undergo reflection tasks and assessments to evaluate their work immersion experience.
