Mr. Tony Fernandez, one of Foundever’s managers, led an interactive discussion about work ethics and how to boost self-confidence. Ms. Maria Beatrix Domingo, the Foundever Fleet Specialist, inspires the Virlanie ILP. She is visually impaired and a 5-year employee of Foundever. The forum was followed by a question-and-answer session in which young adults were given the opportunity to raise inquiries about the topics discussed during the forum. Lastly, the representative of the Virlanie Foundation Mr. Alvin Arnecilla- Sponsorship Officer express his gratitude about the Career planning event.
