About my college education:
I finished Journalism enjoying every subject from News writing, Feature writing, Technical writing, Advertising principles, Newspaper Management, Public Relations and Investigative Journalism.
I like Journalism because of my enthusiasm and appreciation to writing and communication; which is highly important nowadays. People tend to communicate using one way only (speaking and not listening).
This major molded my character to listen to different sides or angles of each issue - either public or private. It highly interests me to develop my skills in objectivity and truthfulness. In addition, to meet new people of different classes.
There are difficult scenarios that we encounter during our studies like deadlines, high expectations from our professors. However, we found out that it is really expected from us for once we work either in the field of media, corporate world or even in life. It is much more difficult and challenging.
My current job:
I work in a Telecommunications company under the Sales and Marketing department handling Business Groups.
Am I using what I learned in college:
Definitely! If I may quote a lecturer who once said, "IQ gets you hired, but EQ gets you promoted".
How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
I got the job first. Right now, I am doing my follow up to get the copy of my Transcript of Records and Diploma as per company's requirements.
Do I recommend studying AB in Journalism:
Yes, I recommend to all incoming freshmen college students to study Journalism for it will definitely improve their skills in both written and oral communication. In addition, you will be cautious on what you're saying because it teaches more ethics and broad knowledge of interdisciplinary studies.
