Career Discovery Forum PH Coming to Ateneo de Manila University This March

Career Discovery Forum PH 2024 is scheduled to take place on March 16, 2024, in Ateneo de Manila University, Escaler Hall. Hand in hand with Ateneo, the University Partner, Leave a Nest is taking a forward-thinking approach with its theme, “Nurturing Homegrown Talent Through the Digital Frontier.” This theme is specially crafted to tackle the discord between the digital upbringing of recent graduates and the traditional, face-to-face communication preferences of many companies in the post-pandemic world. The rapid shift to online platforms for sales, hiring, and employee training during the pandemic has resulted in a workforce that is proficient in digital environments but potentially less experienced in in-person interactions.

This year's forum is poised to address this gap by preparing students and recent graduates for the nuances of face-to-face job hunting, which has become a critical need as companies strive to blend traditional practices with the advantages of digital processes. By focusing on workshops designed to enhance direct communication skills, the forum seeks to equip participants with the tools necessary for navigating the evolving job market, where a balance between online efficiency and personal interaction is increasingly valued.

The event at Escaler Hall promises to be a converging point for graduating students, graduates, researchers, and licensed professionals to explore opportunities with companies that are adapting to this hybrid model of operation. Open to undergraduates and post-graduates from a variety of institutions, the forum aims to foster a broad and inclusive platform for career development.

By addressing the challenges posed by the transition from a predominantly digital environment to one that values face-to-face interactions as well, the Career Discovery Forum 2024 is setting the stage for a dialogue that is crucial for the integration of homegrown talents into a workforce that is both innovative and adaptable. This initiative by Leave a Nest represents a significant step towards bridging the gap and smoothing the transition for a new generation of professionals ready to thrive in a dynamic professional landscape.
