Testimonials of BS in Hotel and Restaurant Management Graduates from the Philippines

B. R.
◈ Studied BS in Hotel and Restaurant Management
◈ At Perpetual Help College Of Manila
◈ Graduated 2011

list bulletWhy did I choose HRM: I chose this course since one of my edge is my strong personality and being fond of food but honestly I didn't know how to cook before. Though they said that this course is only for people who has passion in cooking and who really knows how to cook.

list bulletAbout my college education: Taking this course is the most enjoyable way of studying I've ever experienced in my life since it is a hospitality based course, practical and laboratory in culinary will always be your favorite. You will experience all the important things that you need to know in all corners of the kitchen. You will encounter foods from different parts of the world wherein all of these is a hands-on activity and it will be done by you or by your group mates. So imagine the foods that your about to bring at home and let your mom and your family be a critic on the food that you have made.

That is only for culinary, but how about baking? Yes indeed, you will be having laboratory as well in baking wherein you will make different breads and colorful cakes.

Another major subject as well is Bar Management wherein you will encounter all kinds of liquor and liqueur from wine, beers, vodka, gin etc. And at the end, you will be making your own concoction or your own recipe of a unique ladies drink or an innovative mix while dancing and performing your own flair-tending routines together with a techno music. Exciting, isn't it?

One of the highlights of being an HRM student is the competition that you can join in your school or inter-school wherein you will showcase your talent in the field that you chose like cooking, flair tending, table setting, flower arrangement etc. Take note that these competitions that you have participated and better if you became a placer will make a point to employers once you will be applying for a job.

Though there are still a lot of activities that I haven't mentioned above that you will encounter in this course, but the most exciting part for me of being an HRM student is the educational tour! In our school before, we always have our tour every semester, so probably I had 8 tours locally and internationally since it is only a four-year course. Imagine the life going out with your colleagues in different places and staying there for three days and you will not do anything but to eat in different restaurants/hotels, visiting different historical places, participating in activities like rappelling, wake boarding, zip line and a whole lot more. Enjoying a great scenery with your friends and of course, SWIMMING! Imagine a hotel or resort wherein majority of the guests are all from your school since it's a school tour and it is compulsory. Hint: one thing for sure is that you will not be having a good sleep at night since you will be choosing to lure around the resort/hotel with your friends at night at take some photos and selfies.

list bulletMy current job: I am now an HR and Admin head in a bank here in Dubai at my very young age of 22. I became a branch manager in one of the country's largest fast food chain ate the age of 20. After graduation, I decided to be a Management Trainee and be a manager. The reason why I am an HR right now, is just because I use my experience in my hotel practicum in a 5 star hotel wherein I had my extensive training in HR department.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Actually, I became a call center agent first for 4 months only right after my graduation. It was my way to give myself a time to think where to practice my degree. But one thing I guarantee you, it is good to have a call center background, for it will be a good foundation to everyone. You will practice your English fluently, imagine a life taking calls direct from United States and talking to different Americans for straight 8 hours. You will definitely enhance your speaking ability in English language fluently and professionally wherein you can use it in tough interviews, and make them amaze on the way you deliver yourself to the interviewer and employer.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Well, this course is a course with a lot of option when you cannot decide what job you want to be involved after graduation. Some schools offer specialization or major in HRM such as major in cruise line, major in culinary etc. Though in general, you really have a lot of options. You can be in cruise line, hotels, restaurants, resorts, airlines (since one of your major is tourism), and even overseas wherein staff in hospitality abroad has great demand of number of worker or anywhere else where hospitality must be applied.

◈ 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.

list bulletAbout my college education: I learned how to handle different types of people, what should be your style in managing people. I also learn basics in cooking, marketing and accounting. The most difficult subject for me was our thesis, from thesis title approval up to the defense is hell and no sleep.

You should have a positive attitude before taking this course and also be friendly, most of the time your friends can help you pass this course :)

Aside from learning different local and international cuisines, HRM students are also thought different management practices for hotels and restaurants, how to run the business, how to deal with customers and so much more. There are a lot of general and fundamental subjects during the first year, including science, mathematics, english, and the likes.

◈ Studied BS in Hotel and Restaurant Management
◈ At Mindanao State University - Iligan Institute Of Technology
◈ Graduated 2012

list bulletAbout my college education: It will be interesting if you are really into the course that you wanted when you applied in college. Difficulties are inevitable since we are required to take subjects even though its not related to our course major, but on the other hand, learning will always be fun. In those difficulties we are able to know our strengths as a student and we find ways on how to solve those.

Regarding the skills, it also depends on what type of personality you possess and your eagerness to learn, and also your ability to bend over situations that you haven't encountered yet in high school. But the most important thing you should have is the right attitude towards dealing with others so that you would be able to finish college with more friends and of course, the experience you gained while still learning.

list bulletMy current job: I am a front desk receptionist here in Pearl View Hotel, Butterworth, Penang, Malaysia (But ill be going home on march 2013 since my contract is only for 5 months. This is just for experience by the way)

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Yes. Our primary goal in the hospitality industry is to cater the needs and wants of the guests, and should be able to exceed their expectations on how we render service in our establishment. This goal is always our point of view whenever we talk about our profession during classes that's why I can say that all we learned in class, I brought it until I landed on this job.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Actually I got hired after my training on the same hotel.

list bulletDo I recommend studying HRM: I would recommend this course if the person is willing to serve people regardless of his standing in the society. I mean, if he should choose this course, even though he's reach, he must draw a line between his wealth and his chosen profession.
There are times that we get to be depressed in certain circumstances, but it is a part of the challenge of being a part of the hospitality team.

In terms of salary, it depends on what type of hotel you are in. But dont expect to get hired on 5 star hotels immediately after graduating. Those hotels need more experienced employees to maximize the quality of their work force.

◈ Studied BS in Hotel and Restaurant Management
◈ At DMMA College Of Southern Philippines (DCSP)
◈ Graduated 2011

list bulletWhy did I choose HRM: I wanted a course were I could get to work at a hotel or at a resort after graduating. I wanted a job that would bring me great employment opportunities not just here in Philippines but also abroad.

list bulletAbout my college education: Assignments, requirements, projects and exams were manageable if you just give yourself time to study, read the books, and do some researching. What only made the course difficult were the surprise quizzes, and long quizzes. Another thing that I enjoyed it a lot when I was studying at DCSP was every time the school organizes an event, training programs, bartending, cooking competitions and anything that can showcase the student's knowledge and skills.

list bulletMy current job: I am a receptionist at a hotel here in Abu-dabhi.
I am the first point of contact of all clients. I am the one to answer the telephone switchboard and connect all incoming calls to the appropriate person in a timely fashion.
In addition, I maintain agendas for the meeting rooms, ensure rooms are pristine and that appropriate materials are available before and after each meeting.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: What I learned was that public relations are important in this kind of industry. Having connections can help a lot, and I am forever grateful for having a friend like him who is willing to help and support his fellow country men.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Thanks to our close family friend, I already started working abroad a year after graduating. He is the operations manager in the hotel where I work today. He urged me to give him a call after graduating because He would help me to have a job abroad. It took me almost a year to start working for I had to comply with all the requirements and programs from the POEA.

list bulletDo I recommend studying HRM: I highly recommend this course for women, not just because you have higher chances of landing a job abroad, but it can also make you financially stable. Why financially stable? To set an example I am earning AED 3,380 / month. Converting it to pesos 1 AED = 11 PHP, so 3,380 would mean P 37,180 / month. You don’t get to earn this high as a receptionist in the Philippines.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Always participate, always listen to who is instructing, review your notes often, and make a study group. Do your best, make the instructors see that you are well-deserving to pass the course.

◈ Studied BS in Hotel and Restaurant Management
◈ At Assumption College Of Davao
◈ Graduated 2012

list bulletWhy did I choose HRM: The reason why I chose HRM was because me and my high school classmates were really close, after taking NAT (National achievement Test) some of my classmates gathered and discussed to take HRM. Maybe due to peer pressure I also decided to join them and take HRM as well.

list bulletAbout my college education: The assignments and projects were manageable. What I really liked about most of our instructors was that they would start a surprise quiz but they would give us 10mins to review our notes, before the day of exams they would guide us on what chapters to focus studying on. But even though were considerate I never forget to read my books and give my best at class.

list bulletMy current job: Like a typical fresh graduate I started as a crew and after 6 months they decided to promote me. I am working as a Cashier at Tater’s Davao, 2nd flr Abreeza Mall. We cashiers take orders from customers, we also ensure that the food to be served is in standard quality and well served.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: What I practically I learned in this kind of industry was there is a chain of command to be followed. You have to start from the ground before reaching the top. As I experienced I cannot just be a manager after graduating management, I had to start small and experience it as a worker, then gradually reach for the top position.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I decided to go to Davao after my graduation since the industry is better and due to employment opportunities are higher. After arriving in Davao it took me 3 months to land a job. As a start I began to work as a service crew at Jollibee.

list bulletDo I recommend studying HRM: I knew a friend that works as a manager, as I aiming to be a future manager asked him how much a manager earns. A restaurant manager here in Davao earns somewhat at P390 – P450/day summing up to P10,000 – P12,000/month. On other hand, hotel managers may earn double or triple than a restaurant manager, depending on the popularity of the hotel. If you like the amounts you are seeing now then I recommend you to take HRM.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: If you were to take Hotel and Restaurant Management you must be patient, quick, and diligent. Aiming to be a future manager, You must have the initiative to do things, don’t just follow orders without questioning yourself because it is not healthy to make this a habit.

list bulletAbout my college education: Studying BSHRM is fun. Why? Because the school provides hands on activities which can be a good lesson for every individual. Not just about memorizing lectures, histories and details about the program. Its interesting because students got the chance to explore their talents on the said program which brings out their competency in providing not just what is needed to accomplish but ringing out more than what is expected.

◈ Studied BS in Hotel and Restaurant Management
◈ At Davao Winchester Colleges
◈ Graduated 2013

list bulletWhy did I choose HRM: I chose HRM because my dream when I was still young was to work at a 5 star hotel someday. My Uncle works as a chef at a 3 star hotel abroad, knowing it I aimed to work at a hotel also.

list bulletAbout my college education: The assignments, projects and exams were not that difficult if you just give time for it. I had difficulty at only one subject and it was algebra. Glad to say that most of us passed but only few had high grades. Maybe if I have given it my best I could be one of the top students.

list bulletMy current job: I just resigned from my work. My past occupation was as an assistant chef at Chicken savory. Our job was to meet the needs and satisfaction of the customers. We chefs ensure that customers have a memorable eating experience at Chicken savory.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: When studying at Winchester colleges I actually learn a lot. But in work I get to learn more practical ways in cooking and in customer service. All the lessons and knowledge passed on to us, I get to enhance it all at work.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I was already working when I was still at 3rd year college. I was a working student. I worked as a waiter and kitchen crew on diffirent eateries and restaurants just to financialy support my studies. After graduating I finally had my full time occupation at KFC as a full time waiter.

list bulletDo I recommend studying HRM: I recommend this course for people who would like to work as a hotel or restaurant manager. Graduating at this course gives a higher chance of opportunity to work abroad. I believe it is also fit for people who has good managing and leadership skills. Many opportunities will open for HRM graduates in the future. As I remembered managers earn like P20,000 - P25,000 a month.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: I advice them to take the course of HRM on a better university but if financially trouble then Davao Winchester Colleges is not a bad idea as well. In the end what matters most is the education you attained.

list bulletWhy did I choose HRM: I love this course because I enjoy working in a hotel or restaurant, or any place where there is food and entertainment. I grew up being exposed to different places where there are lots of fun and interesting things to learn so I typically prefer a kind of job that will also allow me to enjoy the work and improve myself at the same time. Also, this is a course that is in demand not only locally but even abroad. Being a staff in a 5-star hotel is almost like a dream of a lifetime for me so I somehow depended on this course to give me that ticket towards achieving that dream of a lifetime.

list bulletAbout my college education: The difficult subjects were accounting and math --- both involve numbers which reflect that I am not really a fan of anything that pertains to calculations. As for the enjoyable parts, I really loved the subjects that are related to catering and cooking.

There is actual demonstration of the cooking of local as well as international cuisines and the students go on practicum in hotels and restaurants in Davao City. This was the fun part in my course, being able to go from one hotel to another and discover what they have to offer in terms of food and services.

Thankfully I was able to pass all of my subjects in college, though I don’t think anyone failed in them either.

To be successful in this course, one must be very observant and attentive in the practical teachings and demonstrations of catering, food & cooking preparation, table preparation, bed and room cleaning, as well as in customer relations. One must be patient and courteous to all customers, as they are considered to be the “boss”.

list bulletMy current job: My job now is a service crew and cashier of a food establishment in one of the biggest malls in Davao City. I attend to all the customers’ needs and make sure that they get the best service that I can give.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: There was a good practicum and training and I learned a lot on preparing a social function with catering as well as food preparations for all occasions.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It took only a week for me to get employed after graduation. I was a bit lucky that there was an opening and I was chosen from the many other applicants to this position.

list bulletDo I recommend studying HRM: I highly recommend this course for people like me who are in love with food, good places, and yearn for a fulfilling and interesting career, whether locally or internationally. This is for the people who dream high, work hard and want to explore the world in all it's goodness as you also have a chance to travel if you are assigned to a cruise ship.

◈ Graduated 2005

list bulletWhy did I choose HRM: I had no any intention to take this course but because I have failed my Civil Engineering examination and I had a few months to decide whether which course to take; I guess the nature has pushed me and led me to this course.
I had no any idea what is HRM at that time, the interviewer of the school has explained to me the differences between ASHRM and BSHRM are; where I have ended taking BSHRM.

list bulletAbout my college education: BSHRM is not an arduous course. It is becoming difficult if an individual is lazy to do his/her part.
At first I have found some of the minor subjects repetitive as I have studied some of them when I was in High School (such Chemistry, Rizal etc) most of the Major Subjects have attracted me to be inclined with it most of my time in college. I have met some good/smart professors that can deliver their theories pretty well.
OLFU is really great in actual presentation especially in Food and Beverage Studies. I remember that I have joined Knorr cooking competition and have won second place with my group, it was so unforgettable.
OLFU has a partnership in some of the Singapore’s Restaurants that hires student as an OJT (with salary) at that time; sad I was not qualified and had no chance to be part of it. But there were lots of them who have joined the programme and have went to Singapore to pursue their OJT.
OLFU has led me to enter my dream Hotel (Oakwood Premier Ayala Centre now Ascott). Our OJT coordinator has interviewed me and has asked me which hotel should I pursue my OJT and I have stated Oakwood. I thought I couldn’t enter this hotel as they were not in touch with me until December 2004 nearly graduation (March 2005). My classmates told me not to wait for it as they will not definitely call me and join them in a 3 star Hotel in Malate and finish my more than 800 hours requirement with them which I did. But Oakwood calls and the rest was history.
It was so late for me to finish my 800 hours requirement as I have started fresh at Oakwood, so I didn’t graduate in March but was scheduled to graduate in November. But no regret at all, I have still graduated!

list bulletMy current job: I am currently the Director of Revenue Management in one of the chain of hotel here in the Pacific. Before flying abroad I was the Revenue Manager of the known hotel in Ortigas Center.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: College are more on theories and explorations, it has prepared me to perform well in my actual first job.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Right after my OJT.

list bulletDo I recommend studying HRM: I have started earning money for my first job (2005-rank and file) at around P9000/month plus service charge of around P9000 or more a month.
When I have reached the Managerial position in our country I have started earning more than 40K a month plus SC.
Currently at 33 I am enjoying my life and I have a chance to travel abroad and have invested for my early retirement.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: This course has led me to where I am now; it is highly recommendable for those wanting to work in the hospitality industry.

For you to get a good position and a good package in a certain company try to study Revenue Management and any other related expertise such Rooms Management in a popular training schools here and abroad.

Normally interested and passionate individuals are those getting the most jobs available in the market and the non-performing individuals are mostly counted as unemployed.

list bulletWhy did I choose HRM: I choose BS HRM because I love traveling and food.

list bulletAbout my college education: Fore me BS HRM is not more on theories rather engaging more on skills (cooking, baking, skirting, etc.). It has relevance to tourism. (If there is tourists or excursionist there is accommodation, food, activities which drives to profit). When I was as student, I enjoyed a lot with my course because it's not so difficult although there are subjects that I find it difficult. I would say that BS HRM is fun to be with as you will engage in a lot of travels and cooking but the negative side is expensive course I believe.

In order for you to succeed this course, you have to be determined as this will require a lot physical work specially if you will be working in dining area. You have to be smart as well as this involves business. In a service industry you have to be courteous, polite and kind to your guests.

list bulletMy current job: My current job is customer service agent. I am assisting customers if they concerns, queries, complaint with regard to our product.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Although, I did not end up working in a hotel nevertheless, there is a relevance still as my job involves service.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Maybe it took me 3 months to land a job

list bulletDo I recommend studying HRM: Yes, I would still recommend BSHRM especially now that tourism is now booming in the Philippines. And, we Filipinos are in demand in service industry because we are naturally polite and hospitable people. I believe that is our edge towards others race.

Working in a hotel in fulling as well especially when you step up and become a manager in the future.

As to salary level, there are a lot of money in this industry as we are receiving service charge and tips aside from our basic salary.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Before taking up this course, evaluate first you hobby and skills. You have do research what is this course all about so that you will regret in the future, you might end up shifting course and that's waste of time.

list bulletAbout my college education: When I was in college my practicum was in Pearl Farm Beach Resort in Samal Island in Davao del Norte. I was assigned to the store room and I learned much about proper storing and keeping records of stored items. On the subjects, had a hard time understanding Algebra, but I enjoyed reading and listening to the teacher the life and works of Jose Rizal, our national hero.

Passing the subjects was not difficult for the students because the teachers were not that strict and cruel. Although sometimes somebody fails. But if one is devoted to their studies and determined to finish this course no one will fail. The attitude one should carry are: Be optimistic. Be respectful.

list bulletMy current job: I am now a Sales Representative of Pearl Farm Beach Resort promoting this tourist destination and booking accommodations and reservations.
