All engineering organizations except for UP CAPES, Engineering RegCom, UP Inhenyero, fraternities, and sororities. Executive Board members of UP CAPES are not allowed to represent any engineering organization.
Email invites would be sent to all engineering organizations. Should an organization wish to join, its representative must confirm its participation by emailing his/her contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before February 5, 2019 11:59 PM.
Engineering organizations can register any Engineering undergraduate or graduate student under their organization.
Students must create an account at mycapes.upcapes.org and must register under their organization to be eligible. If a student has a pre-existing CAPES account, he/she must edit his profile to include the organization he/she wishes to present. Noncompliance will result in their automatic disqualification.
It is the responsibility of the concerned organization to ask permission from students to represent their organizations through their CAPES accounts. Complaints regarding this will not be entertained.
A student can only represent one (1) engineering organization.
If a student is part of two or more organizations, he should pick only one organization in his CAPES account to represent in the Seminars Challenge. Complaints regarding this matter will not be entertained.
The participating engineering organization should send AT LEAST FIVE (5) attendees to each talk all throughout the Seminars Challenge. Noncompliance will occur a penalty of 10 points for each missing attendee per Jobfair Company Talk (e.g. deduction of 10 points for only sending one (1) out of five (5) required attendees, deduction of 20 points for only sending two (2) out of (5) required attendees, and so on).
You can convert your points into electronic raffle tickets from February 6, 2019 until February 22, 2019 (11:59 PM) only. After this, points in CAPES accounts will be reset to zero.
A grace period of fifteen (15) minutes will be allotted for each Jobfair Company Talk. A student registering within this grace period will receive full points. A demerit of 1 point per minute will be implemented should a student register later than fifteen (15) minutes. However, all attendees will gain a minimum of 10 points regardless of the time they registered (e.g. arriving 30 minutes after the start of the talk will only merit 25 points).
Each org representative for a talk would earn 40 points for his organization.
Points earned by an individual from the Logo Quiz will also be added to his organization total for the Seminars Challenge. The Logo Quiz will officially launch on January 29, 2019. Please wait until then for further details.
If 80% of organization members from Batch 2014 and above (Batch 2015 and above for Computer Science students) submit their resumes through resume.upcapes.org, the organization would get 2000 points (equivalent of 50 people attending a talk). Note that only members registered under their organization in mycapes.upcapes.org would be counted.
The Top 3 engineering organiations with the most points by the end of the Seminars Challenge will be awarded with the corresponding cash prizes. The consolation prize will be electronically raffled to the remaining participating organizations.
1st Place - P 15,000
2nd Place - P 10,000
3rd Place - P 5,000
Consolation - P 2,500
