Why did I choose this course:
I decided to take up BS Tourism Management because during that time, it was in demand. I also love to travel and wanted to learn different languages then.
About my college education:
BS Tourism Management is such a challenging course. It's not what others would think to be a very easy course to take. It takes a lot of hard work to pass this.
I've learned a lot in this course. I learned how to mingle with different kinds of people, extend patience and exert hard work in accomplishing tasks.
The major subjects of course are the ones to be the most difficult. You have to take much concentration in familiarizing yourself with the different countries as well as it's capital cities, and so forth.
The most useful things I learned are the values I exerted during my studies.
Passing the exams are quite difficult, yet; can be passed still if you will just focus on studying. =) I think only 3% of the students shifted due to financial reasons, because it takes a lot of money to be in this course.
To be able to succeed in this course, students should have a lot of self-confidence, hard-work, patience and determination.
My current job:
For now, I am not employed yet.
I resigned from Banco de Oro which was my first and previous job because my workplace was quite far from our home. I also gave birth to my baby and decided to just focus my attention on him from then on.
Am I using what I learned in college:
In my college life, I learned to be patient with people of different personalities and with those people of attitude problems, which I have used on my past job because there are a lot of people from the bank who are rich and very annoying. Yet, I was able to overcome those stresses in my life.
How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
It took 6 months after my graduation before I get hired. I applied within June of 2010 and got the job by September already.
Do I recommend studying BS Tourism Management:
Honestly, I know there are a lot of opportunities for BS Tourism Management graduates. It could be in the Airline Industry, Travel Agencies, Tourism-Related jobs, etc.
A fresh BS Tourism Management graduate can expect at least 12,000/month. And a more experienced employee of course is much higher. =)
Advice to people who are thinking of studying this course:
If you want to take up BS Tourism Management, you have to be patient, vigilant, determined and most importantly, be confident enough to face challenges that might come along the way =)
