With the ever-changing and widening career landscape, it is getting more and more difficult to learn and discern to find the right-fit tertiary experience for the students. How can parents provide support to their sons in this process?
On October 19, 2021, the High School Guidance Department hosted a talk entitled “Parents’ Career Talk: Accompanying Your Sons in Their Career Journey.” The speakers for the event were Mr. Christian Domingo, HS Guidance Department Coordinator; Mr. Ryan Bulosan, IBDP Coordinator; Mrs. Rovelita Bermejo, SHS Asst. Principal for Academics; and Mr. John Sy, Universities College Counseling President.
This event was made available to all Xavier parents who have sons from Grade 9 – Grade 11. The main aim of the talk is to help guide parents on how to best assist their sons in their career journey. Various topics were addressed, including a summary of the Guidance Department’s Career Program, the SHS and IB Department’s offerings, which help complement students career goals, and a talk from a guest speaker, Mr. John Sy, about “Preparing your Sons in Career Decision-Making.” The event ended with a short Q and A, culminating in a rich and informative experience for our Xavier parents.
