This post is for Missy and all those who are interested about the result of the Ayala Young Leaders Congress 2008 screening. I first blogged about the said search here. Anyway, I am taking the liberty to copy-and-paste a related email (Italics mine) of Mr. Ralph Reuben Morales, batchmate of mine and now, alumni relations officer of AYLC division at the Ayala Foundation Inc. (AFI), for everybody's information and guidance.
Announcing the schedule for the Interview Phase for the 2008 AYLC, as the Secretariat approaches the final stretch of the paper screening to select the top 150 applicants who will be shortlisted from a record-high of 592.
We are inviting everyone to be part of the volunteer pool to serve as interview assistants for at least 2 half days from -23, 2007. Please advise us of your availability on these dates by filling up and sending back the attached confirmation form on or before .
We will then announce to confirmed alumni the details of the orientation dinner for interview volunteers.

Apart from the congress itself, the interview phase is one of the most challenging, exciting and unforgettable experiences to look forward to in AYLC. The top 150 applicants will be interviewed by no less than a panel of topnotch executives coming from the Ayala companies, usually with the rank of Vice President, Director and up. In fact, one should even expect to be interviewed by the Ayala brothers (Jaime Augusto and Fernando) themselves and even, Ayala chairman emeritus Don Jaime Zobel de Ayala!
Now that Mr. Guillermo "Bill" Luz, the boyish-looking, media-savvy former executive director of the powerful Makati Business Club and CEO of NAMFREL, is already with the Ayala Foundation as Executive Vice President (and possible successor of AFI President Ms. Vicky Garchitorena who is soon to retire already as I was told by someone from AFI), applicants can also anticipate meeting him in person. He was one of our speakers during our time. So, goodluck to all applicants!
