A. L.
◈ Studied Bachelor in Banking and Finance (slightly different course)
◈ At Polytechnic University of the Philippines
◈ Graduated 2003

list bulletAbout my college education: Banking and Finance is fun but a very challenging course. At first, I started as an Accountancy student. However, I failed to meet the requirements needed for Accountancy so I switched to Banking and Finance. You must be open-minded and knows how to analyze. Mathematical skills is a plus.

list bulletMy current job: Customer Service Representative

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Well, it is practical as the Banking and Finance course is more of financial management and working in a bank. Aside from these academic learning, I've learned soft skills that are relevant in any other type of jobs. These includes computer literacy, communication skills and analyzing figures. In my current work, communication skills and analyzing figures are highly relevant.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It took me a year to find a job due to personal matters.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Banking and Finance: Yes. I recommend this course if you have intentions in working in a bank. Salary may be negotiable depending on the job selections. I can say that 8 out of 10 that my course is interesting.
