Over 20 Grade 12 students from the Jubilee Christian Academy received career advice from several Primer Group employees (KaPrimers) during their visit to the Primer Group of Companies head quarters last April 4, 2019.

At the Training Room in the WorkPlays building, students taking Accounting and Business Management (ABM) track listened to five KaPrimers with different subject matter expertise who shared inspiring messages and career tips.
KaPrimers Reginald de Vera and Jundel Llagas talked about their career journey into marketing and brand management; while Chris Famini and Yanyan Dianalan delved into the relevance of finance and accounting in a company, and what to expect when working in that field.
Each talk was followed by an open forum where students shared their insights, asked their burning questions, and reflected on their possible career choices. Students who participated in the discussion enjoyed freebies from Primer Group’s top and premium brands.

Assistant Vice President for Human Resources Antonio Jacomina III culminated the talks by talking about what to expect as they begin deciding their next steps for their career, and how Primer Group can support them in the future, such as through the company’s internship program.
To culminate the activity, students toured Primer Group’s newest office building, WorkPlays. They were fortunate to be joined by Primer Group Managing Director Jerry Sy, who happily mingled with the students and shared some words of wisdom. He also highlighted how the WorkPlays building reflects Primer Group’s care for the environment.
At the end of the day, Jubilee Christian Academy students went home not only full of freebies in hand, but also overflowing with wisdom from Primer Group’s very own treasured talents.
