list bulletWhy did I choose Geology: I chose BS in Geology because it is my dream to study volcanoes and to see actual flowing lavas. It is also recommended by my High School teachers as I have graduated in a science program during my secondary education.

list bulletAbout my college education: The scope of Geology is very broad. You should read and read many books and references in order to pass the exams. Patience and perseverance is the key to graduate in this course.

list bulletMy current job: I am currently working in a government institution in Metro Manila right now as a Science Research Specialist. We are currently working under a special project under DOST.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: It depends mainly on how you will cope with your lessons. I guess you should just try this course because this profession is cool.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: You should take first a board exam in geology before you can land a stable job in this profession. I was employed 3 or 4 months after passing the licensure exam.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Geology: In terms of employment, the mining industry is down as of the moment but this profession is not just focused in the field of mining. You just have to explore and you will find an interesting work right after you graduate and pass the board exam. Don't expect a high salary rate in your first job. Experience is the key for you to succeed not just in this profession but in any profession.
