Reviews of University of San Carlos graduates

J. C.
Studied AB English with Applied Linguistics
at University of San Carlos , Cebu City
Graduated: 1997

Why did I choose this school:
For starters, it is one of the best universities in Cebu. Secondly, all of my aunts and uncles, siblings of my mom, graduated here, so it was expected for me to study there and be a graduate of USC too.

About University Of San Carlos:
I have always liked my professors, especially those who share their love for literature and the English language. I was not initially keen on teaching, but towards my last years in college, there was one activity that 'woke me up', so to speak, and opened my eyes...

We taught mothers and old women in a certain barangay in Cebu City. These were mothers who didn't finish studies and some even attended only a few years of elementary. It was a different kind of 'immersion' as we tried to teach them the basics, how to read, correct sounds of English, and being able to be 'there' for their children, who wish to study with them. It was exhilarating to know that you have made a difference in their lives, that their appreciation of what you did was met with genuine smiles and ever present banana cue they prepared for you when you get there.

That was my 'moment' and I knew then I was going to teach, to train...

My current job:
I am technically holding the DARP Supervisor's position. DARP stands for Documentation, Analysis, Reporting & Planning. This department takes care of all documentation and as the dept says, reporting, analysis, and planning. I work for a BPO company which means all data and recording has to be submitted to the right people: QA, Managers, etc...

At the same time, since I initially joined the company as Language Trainer, I take care of special training given to agents, focusing on Speech and Communication. As a pioneering employee, I created the training plan for newly hired employees. I don't technically belong to the Training Dept, but from time to time, if there are agents who are in need of special 'training', they're given to me to be trained.

I also do specialized training, upon request, for other English schools. An example was a request to do Speech and Pronunciation Training for 3 weeks to the teachers of an English Academy (for Korean students).

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
Actually, it didn't take long. After I graduated, I already knew I wanted to teach, so I sent my resumes to schools and landed an English teaching job in one of the best schools in Cebu.
