About my college education:
Before I took up Journalism at Letran, I have already studied two years of Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology at the University of Santo Tomas. I had to transfer because I knew my heart was glued to writing. More than three years later, I know that that was the best decision of my life. Journalism suits my thrill-seeking personality and of course, the endless writing brings out the best in me. Because of Letran's competitiveness and commitment to righteousness, I have greatly improved my writing skills and developed a strong sense of working ethics.
My current job:
Alongside studying, I am currently a freelance writer. I write research papers for fellow students and occasionally runs errands for one of the Philippines' most-read newspapers.
Am I using what I learned in college:
Everything I learned that has relation to my course and future career was worth every penny.
How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
I have not yet graduated but I already have job offers up my sleeve.
Do I recommend studying Bachelor of Arts in Journalism:
I would recommend journalism to others because it is indeed a very interesting and fulfilling career. Contrary to what most people expect, journalists have vast employment opportunities because we are trained to be flexible and eclectic. Unfortunately, the pay does not properly compensate the difficulty of the job most of the time.
