Career Development Talk In celebration of the College of Business, Entrepreneurship and Accountancy Week, JPICS organized a career development talk for 1st year and 2nd year CBEA students with the aim of enlightening and guiding to the right career path. We invited speakers with specializations pertaining to the different courses of the students.
Career Development Talk First to talk was Mr. Brian Quebengco, which oddly reminded us of a younger version of Francis Kong. He was a great speaker, talking about his life’s struggles and the ways which he overcame them. We were happy that the students were paying much attention to him. They were laughing at every joke and gives him an occasional nod every time they agree to what he was saying.
Career Development Talk Next to speak was Mr. Allan Hizon. He is currently a new teacher in the Accountancy Department. He talked about the career opportunities of the accountancy students once they graduate. He is also loved by his students. They actively participated in his talk.
Career Development Talk After Mr. Hizon, Karla Escoto gave her talk. She talked about the career opportunities of finance students. Her talk was short, only pertaining to the important bits and most important things that finance students should consider. When she was finally done with her talk, she was asked by the students to sing, which she gladly accepted.
Career Development Talk Last to give her talk was Ms. Jam Meyer-Flores. She is currently the head of ProforaMedia, a virtual events company. She talked about the advantages of working online, where you can just do your work at home. We were also surprised that she is an alumni of Miriam College High School. Unfortunately, due to time constraints, her talked has to be rushed.

Official JPICS Shirt As part of our activity this school year, the Junior Philippine Internet Commerce Society will be requiring each member to buy and proudly wear our Official Shirt. The shirt was specifically designed to reflect the goals and defining points of the organization.
Official JPICS Shirt Last December 10, 2009, the organization posted the proposed designs on Facebook and held an online poll to see which of the designs do the members like most. The poll is also open to alumni of the E-business track. Careful deliberation and pricing was applied. Since the organization is short of funds, it was then decided that the selling of the official shirt of the organization will be partly a fund raising activity and therefore will be sold for P250 each
