About my college education:
I was lucky to have teachers who were from the banks and who were friends of my father. I had my college training in the bank. I learned about deposits and withdrawals. The subject that was was Economics. Even the teacher did not really know much about it. The subject on philosophy was interesting. I passed all my subjects. Everybody will pass and graduate if they are determined to finish and get employed.
My current job:
I am now a Manager of a universal bank owned by the owners of an airlines in the Philippines
Am I using what I learned in college:
In my college, I had my undergraduate training in a bank. I learned about the accounting procedures in the bank. But the most important and practical is being honest. I always practice this up till now.

After my graduation I took the CPA Board exam and when I got my license as CPA I was hired immediately by Tacloban Branch
Do I recommend studying B.S. Commerce – Major in Accounting:
This course major in accounting is good for becoming a CPA. As a graduate of Commerce with an accounting major one will be easily employed in any business company. But if you become a CPA, you can be promoted to any high position in the bank. Or you can have your own accounting firm after so many years in experience.
