A Job Fair Experience (Colegio de Dagupan) — March 10, 2012

A Job Fair Experience (Colegio de Dagupan)

March 9, 2012, Colegio de Dagupan Job Fair

It was indeed another successful event powered by Colegio de Dagupan as they gathered Big time companies and us, graduating students inside the arena of the Arzadon gym. It was my first time to attend a job fair (though I already have a job) I could say that it was an incredible experience. It was like being in the world of hunter games where everyone of us (students) fight for one goal, to secure a job.
It was really hard to land on a job nowadays. One must have skill, high grades and confidence so he can go on his way to success. Its difficult, its a long process and it really takes patience. But, the good news is??! Colegio de Dagupan did not left us unprepared and our alma matter made a way to connect us with our future employees.
I bet all of us have their own stories to tell about the job fair, I saw couple of confident students, I saw weak ones, some made an impact with the interviewers and some just passed like a bad air in the fair, but hey guys, its just the start. Our career does not stop there, not in that arena, we are just to open a new world and that career fair is just like a preparation, a training, a mock up of what we are just about to face. If you think you did not do well, don’t despair, use that experience the next time you face a job interview and for those who made it to the interview, Job Well Done!!!
All of these would not be possible ofcourse without Colegio de Dagupan’s concern for us graduating students. Let us not waste and forget what we learnt in this career fair. We will always carry the name of our school wherever and whatever field we are about to land. They had already equipped us with bullets and guns, it is just how are we going to used it according to what was taught in our training ground.
Thank you Colegio de Dagupan.

*by the way, I managed to let my compliance signed by 15 companies, and out of that 15, I received 2 calling cards not bad. 🙂

Spending my College Days at CDD — September 30, 2011

Spending my College Days at CDD

It was October 2008 when I decided to pursue my college degree with the help of my mom and aunt. My mom took charge of my allowance while my aunt paid for my college fee. I took up BS Information Technology at one of the best IT college at Pangasinan, Colegio de Dagupan. Having 6 major college buildings with approximately 8000 students and offering different courses, CDD provides quality education by employing highly competent educators and by using well modernized facilities and equiptments.
My first week in CDD was a real hell. I was like a human sent to the planet Jupites and rest are Aliens. Being a freshman I had hard time touring around the campus coz the buildings are quite far apart. Im kinda shy and introvert type of person so I had hard time making new friends. So most frequently, I stayed at our College Library, computer room, internet cafe’s, anywhere out of that crowded people. As I stayed longer in college, things had also change. I made friends, started leaving my comfort zones and I began to enjoy my college life.
I used to travel 45minutes from house to college. If I ride a jeepney for sure ill be late so I often catch the bus to be ontime. My mom gaves me just enough allowance for my fare and snack so when there are extra e xpenses I skipped meals. Not to boast, I am excellent student at CDD, I maintained good grades and somehow made it to the Deans list. However I got discourage upon knowing and discovering the back end of college life. College life could be as dirty as politics.
Colegio de Dagupan taught me a lot of things even my values, the way I look at learning perspective, the way I handle situations and the way I socialized with others. Month from now Ill be bidding farewell at CDD as I finished my Four years of study, Ill surely carry on all that I have learnt at CDD as I face the challenge of the real world.
