list bulletAbout my college education: If I could sum up my education in one word, I won't and I can't. It was a mix of anything and everything. At times it was fun, and at some times it was devastating, but most of the time, it was a unique learning experience. For any UP student of any course, I think he/she might answer that studying in UP is one of the most memorable experience, ever. As a Statistics major, it's already a prerequisite that you should have at least a strong foundation in math and logic. It's an advantage if you have strong inter and intrapersonal skills, as well as good communication skills. However, the most important skill that Statisticians must obtain is dedication. You can't really succeed in this field if you won't love your chosen career path since there are only a few statisticians in the world due to its difficult nature.

list bulletMy current job: I am currently working as a Statistician for Level Up Games Inc.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Everything that I've learned throughout my college life, I have implemented in my work space. From the technical skills required to the important life lessons and values, I have fully made the most out of it in my chosen career path. So I'm proud to say that anything you learn in UP is something that you can use in the future.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It didn't take me a long time to search for a job after my graduation. Almost everyone in my course already has a job even before graduation. Actually, my adviser referred me to my first job.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Statistics: Statistics encompasses almost every field in the world yet only a few statisticians exists due the difficulty of its nature. You can be involved in economics, business, management, health, epidemiology, biology, agriculture, social work, public administration, computer science, and so on and so forth. UP makes it a point to train their students quite well in whatever field they choose so when they're in the real world, they know how to arm themselves to face life's challenges. I would recommend this course to anyone who has a passion to help improve the current status of our society in whatever aspect he/she chooses.
