About my college education:
Mass Communication in Far Eastern University is an interesting course because our curriculum has a little bit about everything that is ought to be learned for a holistic development of an individual to be able to survive the demands of the competitive world.
In terms of difficulty, I was able not to focus on this matter because I have loved and embraced the things that was tasked to us. The academic and practical things that were imposed to be done by our professors was way out of mediocrity but is manageable.
In my 4 years of college, there was almost no dull moment. everything was dynamic and fun. We had a lot of wonderful moments learning, working and sharing ideas. During our time and most likely until now, our course is considered as one of the most lively and happiest course to be part of.
Like any other courses, logical skills, math, language, hard work and all other desirable traits are of requirement. But what is really important in our course is to be resourceful, creative, and confident sealed with Fortitude, Excellence and Uprightness by which are the three values that F.E.U. promotes.
My current job:
Currently I am a Freelance Events Coordinator & Marketing Consultant and do some projects like Arts Festival, Social Events and others.
I am also a Political Strategist based in Baguio City. I have handled the 2010 for Liberal Party Baguio and will be part of the 2013 Liberal Party Baguio Campaign.
Currently also, I am Law student at the Cordillera College.
Am I using what I learned in college:
Yes, I am definitely using all my learning in my professional career.
The primary thing that I have learned is how to properly and effectively communicate with my audience or the person whom I am communicating with, in the simplest form of it, for the achievement of my purpose or at least close to it.
How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
Even before graduation, I already had several calls from companies who are based in Manila but I have turned down all the offers because I chose to manage our business in Baguio right after I graduated. I have also practiced and tried to apply the skills and knowledge that I have gained when I entered a family owned newspaper in La Trinidad, Benguet.
Do I recommend studying AB in Mass Communication:
Yes, I would definitely recommend this course to others because employment opportunities are really high. As a graduate of Mass Communication for half a decade know, I could strongly say that there are so many Industries that we could be part of, not only in the field of communication itself but almost in all fields (i.e. T.V. and film production, journalism, advertising, marketing, etc.).
It is a very interesting career because learning and growth as a person and as a professional communicator by which most of the time you get not only to interact with people but at the same time inspire them which is very rewarding and fulfilling.
The salary level, at first it is only at par with any entry level jobs. The salary level for Mass Communication graduates is primarily depends on what industry they would like to work in. Others, receive a minimum wage salary but receives much incentives when they do field work such as writers and agents. There are also some who receive really good salary and at the same time receive a bonus for a great performance of a project which is evident in the field of advertising and productions.
I strongly believe that Mass Communication is a competitive course in all aspects that should be considered and unlike any other courses, it never goes outdated.
