The First Successful Batch

Previous partnerships with universities in Malolos, including BulSU and CEU, have helped students land on-the-job training for IT positions within Xentra Group. In fact, in the summer of 2022, Xentra accepted 25 on-the-job trainees with paid allowances. After their 3-month OJT period, more than 50% of the students were accepted as trainees and then further hired to become Junior Developers. 

Xentra’s first batch of on-the-job trainees from 2022 who are now hired employees of Xentra. They are proof of the success that Xentra’s OJT Progam has achieved from the previous year. In the picture with them are Xentra President Maricel Medel, VP for Software Development Lemmuel Cabuhat, Project Manager Donna Piscasion, and Senior Software Developer Paul Panillo.

In less than a year, students have become trainees to employees earning above minimum wage salaries, without having to travel far and commute in traffic to Manila, and are now able to contribute as tax-paying citizens to the society.

Significance of the Partnerships

Xentra is partnering with universities in Malolos to help graduating students in their on-the-job training (OJT) and future job placements. The partnership initiated by Xentra would allow it to provide learning, development, recruitment, and future job placement with career opportunities in the information technology industry for graduating students.

The OJT program vows to provide students with exceptional IT training experience and, at the same time, amplify Xentra’s efforts to reach out to the community in the area..

Xentra’s partnership with universities is one of the many ways the company wants to give back to its community. With the recent partnership, Xentra hopes to contribute to the community development in the province of Bulacan through academic linkages.
