MSU-IIT asserts IT dominance with JobsDB.com accord

JobsDB.com, the leading Asia-Pacific Interactive recruitment network, and the MSU-Iligan Institute of the Technology signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) that prioritizes job placements for Institute graduates and alumni.

The opportunity places the Institute in an enviable position where its graduates can easily seek jobs online. This positioning further boosts IIT’s stock to claim being the leading university in the Southern Philippines.

The MSU-IIT website will be running the system used by JobsDB.com. The jobs database also provides an up-to-date tracer of the employability of the graduates of MSU-IIT allowing its graduates the edge in seeking employment. Furthermore, companies can also recruit graduates online.

The facility will be launched in April 2011 with the MSU-IIT Computer Center team headed by Prof. Dante Dinawanao maintaining the database.

About 2,000 students graduate from the Institute every year, and these numbers tag outstanding achievements in national board examinations including an array of board exam topnotchers. These results have recognized MSU-IIT as one of the best performing schools in the country, a reputation that allows its graduates to be more competitive than other graduates in the job market.

Assessing IIT’s entry to Level III of the Accreditation of the Association of Charted Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACUP), team head Dr. Nelson Binag observed, “with its (MSU-IIT) strength in information technology as the leading IT campus, MSU-IIT will become the IT academic hub in Southeast Asia in the future.”

The use of other academic institutions in the country of IIT’s software indicates the Institute’s dominance in e-governance.

The accord allows the institute to harness the speed and global reach of software designed by JobsDB.com, a powerful medium wherein employers and job seekers interact directly for fast, efficient, and cost effective recruitment.

Founded in 1998, leading provider JobsDB.com launched its services in Hong Kong and quickly expanded its operations of online services to the Asia-Pacific with a network coverage spanning Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and the USA. The provider’s extensive network is backed up by local service and localized content to meet the needs of individual territories to provide the best products and services in the region. It has one of the largest and most comprehensive databases in the Asia-Pacific region with over 7 million Jobseeker profiles and over 120,000 registered corporate members.

In a related development, the MSU-IIT through its Association of IIT Alumni Foundation has maintained a database of alumni with the support of 14 active chapters in the country and 4 active international chapters. The foundation has a strong presence in social network sites such as Facebook and Yahoogroups.

Developments of these kinds reinforce the MSU-IIT’s vision as a “world-class” institution and provide its graduates a competitive edge in many aspects verily signifying the truism that “The IITian brand is your career advantage.”
