A Career Path in Automotive Servicing

It is with no doubt that the University of Perpetual Help has perfected crafting the career path of students enrolled in their Quick Auto Service Training Program after hearing several success stories from its interns who came back from Japan after their 3-year internship. UPH has worked hard just to get the right partners in the industry to hit the goal of their education to employment initiatives.

Motech Wowie

Currently an auto mechanic in Motech Las Pinas, Wowie Vic Casiple takes us in memory lane on how he experienced working as an auto mechanic intern in Japan.

He recalls that in his early 20s, he was one of the successful candidates who took the Quick Auto Service Training Program in UPH and was sent to Japan for internship. Wowie shared that it was not a walk in the park working in Japan. He even remembers clearly how hard it was juggling studying Nihongo while working. He was also one of the youngest interns and it took a while for him to adjust. In order to survive, he gave his 101% effort in everything he does especially in learning Nihongo and the Japanese culture.

His starting salary/allowance in Japan was 60,000 pesos. On his second year, his pay was raised to 80,000 pesos; definitely a good rate for a 20-year old newbie.

After Wowie’s 3-year intership in Japan, he was hired by Motech, the largest automotive service chain in the country. Today, at the age of 24, given his intensive training in Japan, Wowie is now more than ever determined to continue to pursue the career path that he chose to take few years back.
