Reviews of Bachelor of Agricultural Technology graduates:


list bulletAbout my college education: It took 4 years and a half for me to graduate the said degree because I wasn't able to march for graduation on my fourth year due to my ROTC subject.

During my four years of Education, the Lord was so great and even until now because He gave me a university in which offered a full scholarship program. Tuition was free, the dormitory, books and even they gave us stipend.

Those things were availed because I maintained my grades to the highest level. Many skills were needed for me to survive. I even encountered plowing the field, planting rice, corn and vegetables, raising animals and even going to the market to sell our produce.

It was an unforgettable experience!

list bulletMy current job: I'm currently teaching kids and at the same time English Program Coordinator of a government school in Thailand with a total population of more than four thousand students, two hundred Thai teachers and almost thirty foreign teachers from different countries around the world.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Actually not all but for sure, I am using a little part of it. Instead of selling commodities in the market and or raising animals, I'm teaching little kids, interviewing and coordinating foreign teachers.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It took me two months to land a job after graduation but not in relation to Agriculture. I was tasked to do some office works in Manila.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Agricultural Technology: Bachelor in Agricultural Technology? In terms of employment opportunities, interesting career and salary level, I won't recommend but if you have no budget to pay for your education and want to have a college degree this is the best way and or you can look for another course offering free tuition allowance.
