Short advice for the Graduating students
My Dear Graduating students:
In an era of joblessness you will be faced with a lot of challenges. My advice would be to build on your career; accept a job even if it is not your dream job and USE that experience.
The Philippine working environment are full of loop holes and you need to be OPEN to different career paths.
When you finally get your first job take on difficult projects that will allow you to DEMONSTRATE your skills.
Invest on continued learning, this separates the slick and the slack.
Remember those who value professionalism and ethics always stand out in the long run.
Do not forget that faith and reason always complement one another. Do not forget what you learned from your humanities and philosophy classes because in the workplace there are people who are full of logic but they lack the soft skills. Learn from them by taking the right path.
Good luck on your job hunting, My prayers are intended for you.
