A. O.
Studied Bachelor of Science in Psychology
at University Of The Cordilleras , Baguio City
Graduated: 2012

About University Of The Cordilleras:
Overall, the university I attended was alright. It did not have the best and newest facilities but it provided for everything we needed. The professors were of high standards since they were required to have masters degrees before they could teach. And I believe every professor has an above average IQ.

About my college education:
Psychology was both challenging and enjoyable! I never expected it to involve so much Math but that was okay since I have math skills anyway. You will be dealing with a lot of people and test subjects so it requires interpersonal skills as well. You need to adjust to different kinds of people especially if you go into field work which involves mentally challenged patients.

This course also requires a lot of reading and research. There are many theories surrounding Psychology and it would be great to test these theories. It makes the course a lot more interesting. Hard work, I believe, is something that all courses needs.

My current job:
I am a freelance writer.
Totally not related to Bachelor of Science in Psychology

Am I using what I learned in college:
Yes. Psychology is a very flexible course. All the concepts I learned from it is applicable to work or to real life. One of the concepts that I use on a daily basis are the concepts in Developmental Psychology whenever I'm at wits end with raising my children. I use concepts in Statistical Psychology whenever doing research papers for my clients.

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
I got a job right after graduation.

Do I recommend studying Bachelor of Science in Psychology:
Yes! I studied Psychology for a reason. It is a very good course. Like I have said, it is flexible. Concepts surrounding Psychology are applicable to many industries. For example, Social Psychology concepts may be applied in social work. Industrial Psychology may be applied in the Human Resources department. Educational Psychology may be applied in teaching or in children. And so on and so forth. There are a lot of career opportunities. But it would always depend on the person. You must be competent enough and smart enough to use these concepts in the work place and in life.

About University of the Cordilleras:
The school is an advance and excellent University when it comes to Computer Science, they already have an excellent level in Computing Science. The Professors are very approachable and friendly. The atmosphere is very relaxing and very enjoyable. The Facilities are advance in terms of personal computers and laboratory facilities.

About my college education:
Information Technology is very interesting especially to those who are gamers and wanted to be innovators in the future. The difficulty of the course is nothing more than a piece of chicken if you are really dedicated to what you wanted to be. It is enjoyable because you are creating a figure with just a number and some solutions that are needed to form that figure, it is also enjoyable because you can and also creating your own game. The challenge is to create and surpass the programmers, game creators and or innovators in the near future, being number 1 in the field of Computing Science is an honor just doing and going to the right path.

The skills needed for this course is analytical skills, mathematical skills, hard work, problem solving, creativity, dedication, understanding and always and never forget the word fun in this type of course, but always be serious on the things that you are going to do, especially in creating a new java game or being an innovator and being a defender.

My current job:
Self employed - still enjoying some of my skills as a game creator.

Am I using what I learned in college:
Yes, programming skills

Do I recommend studying Bachelor of Science in Information Technology:
For employment - you can go to technical support at call centers, programmer/defender, innovator and game creator.
Well, for me the most fulfilling thing in this kind of course is when you have created a game that everyone is so interested with like RPG, today you can see that Role Playing Game (RPG) is rampaging all over the world not only in Asia where many gamers are playing day and night. So that is the most fulfilling part of being a Information Technology "Geek".
Salary level. I think you can see that when you have created a game, innovate something in the near future, being the number 1 defender/programmer

the atmosphere is enjoyable, learning is fun.
facilities are first class, you understand a subject when all the material are there specially when having a return demo.

About my college education:
It was very interesting specially that I love helping the community. Challenging because at the start you don't know what the persons problem unless you have to have a good personal relationship with every patient you meet whether poor and rich.
Skills require is your dedication to help the needy individuals in the community and hospital without proper health care. Having also good interpersonal relationship with the patient creates deeper understanding of what the patient feels about his/her condition and having the knowledge, the skill and attitude to become a successful nurse.

- using my interpersonal relationship being a nurse

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
6 months

Do I recommend studying Bachelor in Science in Nursing:
As we know, the philippines has influx of nurses because of the demand in other countries who are getting nurses to work for them, but in employment opportunities, you will get a 20% chance of being employed because of the competition that you get from your co-nurses.

This is an interesting career because it deals with the lives of a person, but if you are willing to get a course of nursing its up to you if your goal is helping and caring.

Salary level when you working in other countries is high, so many nurses who graduated here in the Philippines wants to work work abroad for higher payment.

Through out my college years, I passed a lot of professors, some are excellent in their approach or method of teaching and I admired them a lot making me not to miss their classes.

I can say that I enjoyed my economic study a lot. I was interested in dealing with numbers, talking about money, the resources, capital money, labor and production. I have no difficulties in finishing my course at all except for one major which is the Integral/calculus that was too challenging.
