Reviews of BS in Developmental Communication graduates:

P. G.
◈ Studied Bachelor of Science in Development Communication
◈ At Xavier University
◈ Graduated 2014

list bulletWhy did I choose Developmental Communication: I chose this course because it is so diverse, like after graduation I can find jobs in any field because communication is indeed important in any areas.

list bulletAbout my college education: Studying this course was easy but time consuming. I was fun but a lot of effort to put just to achieve what we are asked for. Base on my experiences, I learned to be cautious of my actions and time. I should be mindful to my words and action in talking to people whom I encounter for the first time because you know we have different norms and practices. Time management was the big thing that I learned in the process of this course because we have a lot of fieldwork to do and also write-ups. Sometimes I juggle two to three subjects in a day just to finish all the task. Sometimes I compromise a minor subject just to finish my major's assignment/task. It was really an exciting routine for me because I was used to this feeling of beating the deadline.

list bulletMy current job: As of now I am resting and just chilling with by family but I am already searching for a job, through the net.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Developmental Communication: I would recommend this to those who have a heart to serve and help the people in need. Also this course is so diverse that is fit to whatever field we go. We are skilled and creative product of this course so we are fit to become a project head, photographers, video editors, writers, directors, and the likes.

The salary will depend on how well you do in your works but as fresh graduate it should start by 10k.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: The only advice I can give to those people who are considering this course in college, be passionate and patient to the challenges and tasks you are about to face as your year starts. Don't forget that above all you should understand and love what you are about to do and your role in the future as you finish college.
