Meet “The One” in the Wake Up Manila JobCon

Whether it’s love or job hunting, finding The One can sometimes be a long and painful journey. Sending out CVs, waiting long days for feedback and awkward interviews are all par for the course in the search for the perfect job match.  

That’s why Springboard Philippines, one of the country’s most dynamic talent search companies, aims to help fresh grads and job seekers find the One at the Wake Manila JobCon (or Job Convention), a fun and fresh take on the traditional job fair that will help them make all the right career moves.   
Wake Up Manila is a job convention that aims to emphasize the “human connection” often forgotten in job fairs and the overall recruitment process. It’s all happening on July 6 to 7, 2018 from 10AM to 6PM at the SMX Convention Center Function Room 3 in Pasay City. 

Attendees can pre-register at or during the event itself for free.

Interact with industry professionals

Wake Up Manila promises candidates the opportunity to meet and get to know different companies at the JobCon, giving them more chances of finding the right company or “the one” for them. 

The founders of Springboard Philippines, the company behind Wake Up Manila, is working together with the companies participating in the Wake Up Manila JobCon to offer fun experiences and interact extensively with interested candidates. 

Job seekers will have the chance to apply to companies from a variety of industries, from events and retail to technology and business process outsourcing. 

Upgrade your Job Hunting Skills 

Wake Up Manila also offers job seekers the chance to learn more about job hunting and career planning, and discover exciting work opportunities in different industries with a full slate of talks on various topics during the Job Convention.

Enjoy ice breakers through acoustic performances and other fun activities

Unwind with acoustic performances, stand-up comedy routines by Comedy Cartel and Don de Leon of Happy Fingers, and more after a day of job hunting in Wake Up Manila. Promising a festive atmosphere, this is one job convention that doesn’t feel like work! 

Springboard Philippines, the company behind the job convention, started their pioneering recruitment company back in 2013 when they saw the need for a solution to job mismatches. “The big plan of Springboard was to make the candidates realize that they have the capability to be successful – they just needed a little push.”

Jake Go of Springboard says that they created Wake Up Manila to further their company’s mission: “We want to help the attendees find their dream team, to find the right company through us.” 

“So to everyone who wants to find The One, we’d like to invite them to be a part of Wake Up Manila,” Go said.  “Bring your resumes, but more than that, bring your best self because this is your chance to get to know different professionals from companies you may be interested in, all happening in a setting that is designed to make this search fun for everyone!”

Springboard Philippines is inviting everyone searching for The One to join them in the Wake Up Manila Job Convention for an exciting and interactive job hunting experience. For inquiries, visit the Springboard Philippines Facebook page at and RSVP at for more updates on the event.
