In a bid to support the city’s rising demand for professionals in the real estate industry, Primavera Residences teams up with the Capitol University Alumni Association (CUAA) to conduct a career orientation seminar on June 25 at the Capitol University’s Audio Visual Room.

The seminar will cater to Capitol University (CU) students seeking career development in real estate. Participants will learn about real estate opportunities in the Philippines and abroad as well as tips and techniques on how to respond to an increasingly global market of Philippine buyers and sellers. To ensure application and integration of lessons learned, Primavera Residences and CUAA will present a training program supported by an online marketing platform exclusive to participants.

According to a recent report conducted by property consultancy firm Colliers International Philippines, there has been an increasing demand for developments in cities outside Metro Manila.

“Cagayan de Oro has recently been named as an ‘emerging city of tomorrow’ by the United Nations Habitat. This is a clear indication that property development in the city is on the rise mainly due to CDO’s fast growing economy,” said Primavera Residences general manager Cheryll Barriga.

Barriga will present Primavera Residences as a case study on sustainable development at the seminar. Also invited to speak are Multiplata Investment Group Chairman Lorens Ziller and National Real Estate Association (NREA) President Alejandro Mañalac.

“We want to impart to students that the real estate industry, particularly in Cagayan de Oro, offers a lot of opportunities for career growth. Starting a career in real estate certainly has its challenges but there is also great reward in the long run,” said Barriga.

“It is interesting to note that Cagayan de Oro is one of four cities in the Philippines that USAID has chosen for its Invest Project under its Cities Development Initiative, which seeks to promote economic growth through investment opportunities. Primavera Residences is at the forefront of supplying the city’s need for wise investments,” she added.

“We are delighted to extend a career development opportunity to our students and community. As always, we seek to be good partners in growth to our beloved city and leaders by providing venues to our young people where they can learn to contribute to society armed with best practices and smart but ethical work values,” CUAA Board Member and Coordinator Mark Doblas said.
