J. T.
◈ Studied BS in Hotel and Restaurant Management
◈ At STI College - Fairview
◈ Graduated 2012

list bulletAbout my college education: BSHRM was not my first choice of course. I really would like to pursue a career related to advertising, photography and the likes. However, fate decided to intervene and suddenly I realized that I am taking up HRM. It was not enjoyable at first due to subjects like housekeeping and Food and beverage services which honestly, I look down on this kind of jobs before. But as I continue to study the course, I fell in love with it, especially the food preparation side. It is because of this course that I discovered my love for cooking and it quickly turned into a passion. I also fell in love with all the things related to the food and hospitality industry. I gave great respect to all those people who are working in this industry and I am also proud to be a part of it now.

For skills needed to succeed in this course? My answers is that you don't really need the skills before you decided to take up this course. What you need is the proper attitude. You can hone your skills while studying this course but you must be prepared mentally and physically to do it. Taking up BSHRM may not give you fancy sounding job positions but it will certainly can give you a job that you can be proud of.

list bulletMy current job: I am currently working as a cook at Alfredo's Steak House as I discovered that I love to cook and I am really happy with my job.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Yes, and I mostly use the things I learned with food preparation.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Roughly 2 months after graduation, I took up my OJT in the establishment I am working right now and after I graduated, they messaged me if I want to work with them.

list bulletDo I recommend studying HRM: Yes, if it's your passion and if you are decided that this course would make you do what you are happy about. If you are undecided, then you should try if it is for you even for one semester.
