Huawei recruiting the best and brightest

Huawei sponsors career fair for college graduates


MANILA – Huawei Philippines started a series of virtual campus recruitment this year with the theme “A Bigger, Bolder Future,” in partnership with major universities in the Philippines.


About 500 students of Mapua University and other educational institutions attended the online recruitment event for them to begin their career in the ICT industry and be part of Huawei’s growing local talent pool.


Huawei Philippines Human Resource Director Jade Cao said her company aims to develop Filipino ICT talent and train them in global standards to “make the local talent ecosystem more glorious.”


“We believe in collaboration and long-term partnership with Mapua. In the past, a lot of Mapua fresh graduates joined Huawei and already became the key staff of Huawei and fulfilling the vision and mission of Huawei,” Cao said. She added Mapua remains the top source of Huawei engineers.


The partnership between Mapua University and Huawei Philippines begun in 2015 with the Huawei Seeds for the Future Program. Since then, Huawei launched several successful programs and events, including the Huawei ICT Academy, Huawei ICT Competition and Huawei Sales Elite Challenge in 2019. Last year, Huawei began its scholarship program for Mapua students.


John Michael De Jesus, a Mapua Electronics Engineering graduate and ow a radio frequency engineer at Huawei, said he first heard of Huawei while he was in high school.


“I was searching about 3G, 4G, LTE, then I stumbled upon a globally leading telecom vendor, which is Huawei. Then I got interested in joining the company when I was an undergrad because I was studying mobile communications, and it was a major subject and I was passionate about. It,” De Jesus said during the virtual campus recruitment event.


He called on his fellow Mapuans to join Huawei because he “found a better version” of himself at the company career-wise.


Christian Joshua Ulaye, a Computer Engineering graduate, and now a cloud core network engineer, said he was motivated to apply at Huawei because of the experience of his fellow Mapua graduates.


“I first heard about Huawei when they went to Mapua for a job fair, and I got interested to join the company because of the good experiences I heard from fellow graduates working here,” he said. He explained after he got hired, he realized there is a lot to learn in his line of work. He said his job as “challenging but rewarding.”


The career fair with Mapua University is the first in a series of online campus recruitment activities of Huawei Philippines this month. The University of the Philippines hosted a career fair last April 22 while another took place at the University of Sto. Tomas.


Another online recruitment has been scheduled this year and will be announced at Huawei Philippines’ Facebook page. Graduates from other universities can join and submit their resumes as well.


The vacancies are for wireless engineer, datacom engineer, fixed network engineer, procurement engineer, supply chain engineer, maintenance engineer, software engineer, civil engineer, RF engineer, electrical engineer, project controller, finance specialist, account specialist, account manager, public relations manager and sales specialist.
