The job opening culminated in the selection and hiring of the successful job applicant after a fast- paced two hour LIVE job interview held at the Bohol Wisdom School Gymnasium. It was a unique selection process as the girls were also required to compete in two important competitions aside from the job interview.

The swimsuit competition which highlighted the girls’ physique gave the judges and the audience the chance to determine who among the girls was the most fit and most disciplined to perform her job responsibilities.

The gown competition was an opportunity for the applicants to present their elegance and charm to Tagbilaranons who were in the venue that night. After all, the winner will represent them for one whole year.

It was not an easy task for the panel of judges as the finalists were all prepped up months before just as anyone would for an important job interview. Regardless of the outcome, all the girls ended up as winners because of the invaluable training, exposure & intensive personality enhancement sessions that they were able to avail of.
