MAKYO Camp Showcases Protégée and Mentoring Program of MLQU

Manuel L. Quezon University (MLQU) held its first Makyo Camp on May 10, 2023.  A whole day event, it aimed at showcasing the Protégée and Mentoring Program for incoming college freshmen.  The program aims to enhance student engagement and add value on important matters, such as personality development, which are not formally included in regular curricula, and which can help students later in their careers.

More than 200 Grade 12 students from five schools participated in the event.  The topics covered include power dressing, social media communications etiquette, telephone and business email etiquette, professional attitude and professional nonverbal communication, resume writing, and how to ace a job interview. 

Power dressing is a critical aspect of professional life, and the students were taught how to dress for success and make a great first impression.  They also learned the importance of social media communications etiquette, which is essential in today’s digital age.

Telephone and business email etiquettes were discussed to teach the students how to communicate effectively in the workplace.  The students were also introduced to professional attitude and nonverbal communication, which are critical in establishing a professional image and making a lasting impression on employers.

Resume writing and interview skills were also covered, providing students with valuable insights on how to present themselves effectively during job interviews.  These topics are essential in helping students stand out and succeed in their future careers.

The MLQU mentoring program is a key differentiator from other institutions, as it recognizes that academic completion is not the sole indicator of success in the professional world. The program places equal emphasis on personality development, providing students with essential skills and fostering confidence.  It enables the student to navigate the complexities of the real professional world with ease.  Additionally, the program is tailored to the student’s interests and the demands of the market, providing guidance and support towards a path that will contribute to their success as individuals.  Ultimately, MLQU’s mentoring program empowers students to make informed decisions about their future, equipping them with the necessary tools to succeed in their careers and beyond.

Overall, the Makyo Camp was a success, and the students expressed their appreciation for the valuable insights and lessons they learned during the event.
