MANILA - What are the top schools that companies prioritize when hiring fresh graduates?
In a survey conducted by JobStreet.com Philippines from February 22 to March 6, 2016, it showed that the same top schools that came out in 2015 were in companies' minds when hiring new graduates.
However, this year's rankings featured a new school at the top compared to last year.
The study also revealed that out of 550 companies asked, 8 out of 10 companies are willing to hire fresh graduates.
Six out of 10 firms, meanwhile, said they will hire based on school preference.
However, of the firms who said they will hire based on school preference, 9 out of 10 said they will still hire fresh graduates even if they are not from their preferred school.
"Dapat huwag mabahala ang mga estudyante kasi kahit may preference ang mga companies, kahit hindi ka galing sa ganoong school, may assurance ka na as long as you're qualified, 9 out of 10 companies will still hire you and disregard their preferred school," Yoda Buyco, regional marketing manager of Seek Asia, told ABS-CBN News.
