I want to be a student...

Tuesday, March 24, 2009 Posted by vernon go , , ,
Well I have wrote once before about my Graduation Dilemma post. Those who will go through Graduation this 2009 will be entering into a recession, a global at that. Now that I have graduated I feel I want to continue schooling, I am even thinking of either taking a second course or even a master's degree, or maybe some short term courses.

I truly felt this sink in when I was one of the panelist for the lower years in Industrial Engineering for there "baby thesis." It felt really weird to be called / addressed "Sir" or even "Engineer" by my former school mates and even my professors. Now, it's job hunting time and I have already applied for 2 jobs on the net and 2 which would require face-to-face application.

I want to be a student, because I want to learn at the same time work. I do not want to specialize, I want to be well rounded so that when one goes into business, i would know enough of the basics.

Given the current state of the economy it may not be surprising that many of my peers are looking away from business to fulfill their career goals and turning to careers in science and medicine, or nursing or what is Supposedly "Uso." Well i do not want to talk about helping our fellow filipinos and our country since it would be redundant.

A lack of financial literacy and sound business practices have got us where we are, economically speaking. But small businesses drive a lot of job creation, so it's even more important now that we the youth learn business and financial management skills, many have said they have changed their career plans "to a job that is more secure" and then save some money and then invest...you don't have to go at it alone, you can do it with others and what is more important is to take risks and learn formally and informally the necessary things you need to succeed!!
