STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

BS Economics Class of 2022

Alex Rabaya

In 2021, I was fortunate enough to be selected as one of JP Morgan’s Corporate Analyst Development Program summer interns in the APAC region. My internship remains a top-tier college experience because I was able to get a glimpse of what it was like to work for a prestigious bank and receive mentorship and guidance from networks and colleagues all around the globe. It was a delightful experience overall – challenging but extremely rewarding at the same time. The firm has showed me the value of working for a brand that strives to deliver first class business for all, and in a multitude of ways, has honed me to become someone able to contribute to that mission. The journey did not stop there as I pursued a more permanent role with the bank in the Operations space right after graduation.Thanks to mobility opportunities within the firm, I’m now working at one of our Cebu offices under the Corporate and Investment Banking line of business.

BS Economics, Class of 2020

John Tamayo

Throughout my internship journey, I received exceptional support from the Enderun Colleges’ approachable Office of Career Services and my dedicated internship adviser, Dr. Edgardo Rodriguez. Their extensive network and industry expertise facilitated valuable connections, and nurtured my growth as a well-rounded young professional. Their guidance and resources were instrumental in helping me navigate challenges and seize opportunities during my internships. I also developed a strong moral compass, with Dr. Rodriguez always emphasizing the value of daring to be different and making a difference. Enderun Colleges indeed empowers its students for future-ready and globally competitive career paths, and I’m deeply grateful for the enriching internship experiences they provided me and my fellow Titans.

Accenture Internship

Glen Dellera, BSBA-TM Class of 2019

Spending three months in the technology industry and surrounding myself with people from different backgrounds was both a great and challenging experience. It provided me with new skills, taught me many know-hows in the work and brought me several opportunities to jump start my career. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and advice if you encounter any roadblocks and technical blockers. You may also learn things from them.

The school may provide the knowledge and skillset to arm ourselves with in our future career but the internship is where we get our first opportunity to engage in real, hands-on work.Never stop taking a leap of faith as you learn something new everyday.
