Reviews of BS in Developmental Communication graduates:

K. J.
◈ Studied BS in Developmental Communication
◈ At University of the Philippines Los Banos
◈ Graduated 2007

list bulletAbout my college education: I choose the course BS Development Communication because it offers a major in Journalism, which I took because I love writing. However, I did not realize at first that I should have taken a course in Creative Writing, because that's where I excel. Honestly, I am not good in journalism. I prefer writing fiction. But no one explained to me the difference when I was choosing a course to talk.
Nevertheless, I came to love my course. My college years were a mixture of fun and challenging. I learn to mingle with people as a result of the many interviews I did to write a news/feature story.
It doesn't matter if you are skilled in interpersonal and logical areas. As long as you have the thirst for learning and are not afraid to put in hard work, you will succeed in this course.

list bulletMy current job: I am a writer. Not a Journalist, but a Fiction and Non-fiction writer. I can't see myself doing other jobs. Writing is what I do best.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Sadly, I am not able to use the journalism skills I learned from school. I made a mistake in choosing my course. I should have chosen Creative Writing because I'm more into fiction writing.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It took me quite long because I was applying for jobs that didn't match my skills and knowledge. At first, I was looking for a job with a high salary, so I applied in call centers. It was only a few months after graduation that I found a writing job.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Developmental Communication: No, I would not recommend BS Development Communication in terms of employment opportunities. I am speaking from my own experience. But I am at fault as well because my interest is not in journalism. Maybe if I was into journalism, then perhaps I can recommend this course.
In terms of a fulfilling/interesting career, I'm sure a course in Journalism is very interesting because you meet a lot of people from all walks of life and you are abreast of the important happenings in your country/locality.
In terms of salary level, I am not sure because I have not worked as a Journalist. But I have asked friends who took the same course as mine and they said they are earning well.
