Reviews of BS in Office Administration graduates:

P. T.
◈ Studied BS Office Administration
◈ At Central Mindanao University
◈ Graduated 2012

list bulletWhy did I choose Office Administration: I thought it was really interesting, because of the subjects they teach to the students are really interesting.

list bulletAbout my college education: I was able to learn more about personality development, Typing and Stenography which was very challenging in the beginning but was really fun to learn. Other Business related courses and IT-related courses. Stenography was the most difficult assignment for me but at the same is really fun and enjoyable. Having a hard time transcribing short hand assignments which pushes me to study harder.

There are times where some exams are really difficult but you just have to study and when you really study hard there is no difficult exam. There are some students who failed some subjects and had to repeat it.

For me, I guess loving to accept challenges, thinking positive and giving and doing your best in everything that you do will help you succeed in this course. Always believing in yourself that you can do anything with hard work.

list bulletMy current job: Presently I am working at the Municipal Agrarian Reform Office at Don Carlos, Bukidnon as a JO-Clerk. Doing clerical works, preparing bills, filing and records management and typing/encoding data.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: The subjects that were being taught to us during my college years are practical skills and are very relevant in my job today. I was good at typing, I know basic video, audio and photo editing. Personality development is about how you groomed yourself properly in situations and being able to understand your fellow colleagues in their behavior through Human Behavior in the Organization.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: After about six months, I was hired as an Augmentation Support Staff at our Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office at Don Carlos, Bukidnon. The job was only good for three months.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Office Administration: Yes, I can definitely recommend BS Office Administration to fresh high school grad students. There are a lot of Employment opportunities in this course and will really train them into future professionals and business entrepreneurs. Salary level varies depending on the positions you apply.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Just study hard, there are hardships and challenges that you will encounter in this course but it will help you make you a stronger and better person. Hard work really pays off.
