Globe has established strategic alliances with academic institutions across the country for a high-impact internship program designed to endow students with industry-standard skills, ensuring their smooth transition into the rapidly changing job market.

Globe has partnered with top universities across the country to give students an opportunity to take part in a high-impact internship program that could kickstart their career after graduation. 

Being committed to nurturing emerging talent, Globe is excited to serve as an immersion hub for young starters eager to gain experience in a tech-driven organization.

“By providing intensive training through internships, we aim to address the growing skills gap in the tech sector and familiarize students with the corporate environment. This program highlights Globe’s commitment to corporate social responsibility, connecting academic learning with professional practice,” said Raquel Prado, Globe’s Project Lead for University Partnerships.

Nelson Credo Jr., Globe Recruitment Account Manager, noted the dual benefits of the program.

“Through this initiative, we’re preparing the next generation of tech professionals with real-world, on-ground experiences beyond the four walls of the classroom

. It’s a win-win for everyone involved,” he said.

To date, Globe has successfully integrated the Mapua Institute of Tech (MIT), Asia Pacific College (APC), National University, STI College and, most recently, Colegio de San Juan de Letran in Calamba, into its IT, Tech and Digital internship program.

For marketing internships, Globe has established partnerships with the Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU), De La Salle University (DLSU), Far Eastern University (FEU), and the University of Santo Tomas (UST).

Globe is also working on agreements with other state universities and colleges.

Since the partnership with academic institutions kicked off in the second quarter of 2023, over 200 students have completed the internship program, with 48 student interns currently participating.

Globe’s initiative opens doors to further collaborative ventures such as career talks and symposiums, designed to boost students’ preparedness for a technology-dominated professional environment.

From the academic side, Shainne Hostalero, Business Development and Linkages Office Director at National University, shared, “Our partnership with Globe is a testament to our commitment to future-proofing our students. By providing them with actual office and industrial experiences, we are enhancing their readiness for the corporate world and ensuring they have both the technical and soft skills to excel.”

Ferdie Dantes, STI ESG AVP for Academics, also stressed the significance of these collaborations.

“Working together with industry giants like Globe enables us to tailor our academic offerings to meet current industry demands, equipping our students to navigate the obstacles and seize the opportunities that lie ahead,” Dantes said.

Adalbert Alcaide Director, FEU’s Career and Placement Director, praised the initiative, saying, “This partnership with Globe is a strategic step towards enhancing educational experiences and fostering innovation. It’s about shaping a landscape where education and technology work hand in hand for the betterment of our students and society.”

Meanwhile, Dr. Floricon V. Encabo, Vice President for Academics and Research of Letran, said the Globe program helps bridge academic and on-ground learning for students, giving them holistic preparation for future work.

“We at Letran are excited about the program, which will help give our students practical experience on the integration of emerging technologies, including AI and machine learning, aligned with our curriculum,” said Encabo.

Globe’s internship program showcases its dedication to cultivating future professionals and enhancing collaboration between academia and the industry. It positions Globe as a preferred employer for emerging talent, significantly enriching its pool of skilled individuals.
