WHAT WE ARE ?
The CENTER FOR LINKAGES, CAREER DEVELOPMENT AND PLACEMENT or CLCDP is a merger of the former On-the-Job Training and Placement Services Center and the former Center for External Resources and Institutional Networking. The center paves the way for partnerships so that its services and program offerings may be participated in by, and integrated within and among the academe, the industry, and the society in general. CLCDP networks with various institutions – local, national, and international, public and private – for curriculum development, student training and placement, faculty advancement, infrastructure and facilities upgrading, research and extension.
CLCDP envisions to bridge the undertakings of UMak with opportunities and resources that the wide world of the industry and workforce could offer to ultimately advance the employability of UMak graduates.
CLCDP encourages external organizations, corporations, and industries to institutionally link with UMak in creating and developing academic affiliations that are committed to create and implement innovative and sustainable curricular programs, relevant student development and faculty capability building, and greater career opportunities for students and graduates.
