Career

College entrance exams na next school year

Assuming the Hschool student does not have an idea what he wants to be
Business course? secretarial? aircon and refrigerator repair?

Taking a break for a year would be a good idea. So he can think of what he really wants to take up and explore his options

take a year long break?
baka naman yun ang maging option nya... to take a break the rest of his life.
huwag naman sana.

better talk to the child. scrutinize her assessment exams. dalhin sa mga tao or businesses na semi gusto nyang kunin na course exposing him to the future of a selected course.

mahirap talaga mamili ng course para sa bata.
andaming factors.

malupet yung wala talagang idea yung bata kung ano ang gusto.

kapag gusto magsundalo join the pma.
kapag gustong maging siga join the pnpa.
kapag gusto yumaman at libreng makita ang mundo join the ...

This is one reason why I believe with K 1-12. Hurry the boy/girl to finish then they won't know what to do/take

In high school I worked in a sharpening shop. Machine shop.

After high school I joined the army and was a Tank crew member for 6 years.

I figured out that I enjoyed machining while I was in the Army.

Used the money I got from the Army.....GI Bill, Army College Fund, to get a two year degree in Manufacturing (heavy in machining).

I love the work, but on occasion there are layoffs in this field because machining is much cheaper over seas. They can pay them with rice to run the CNC machines that I run here for a living.

You may be right Ed
di naman sya tamad , he's actually pretty bright and he's studying in a tough school
isip bata nga lang, he's only 15 wala pa sa utak nya that he might have to work for a living someday

the problem w/ stopping for a year is masisira momentum ng aral
Plus, mas maganda kumuha ng entrance exam now habang naka tono pa utak, not after a year of inactivity

aba ako nalang!
seriously , madami bata mas maganda kumuha nalang ng vocational courses than pumasok sa college
mas madali sila makapunta abroad ( just guessing )
Our office has hired accounting majors from local colleges here na literaly hindi marunong mag compute. I wonder what they studied.


pati nga ako nagbabalak mag aral ulit

Di na kailangan ng college , what's important daw is common sense
Wala daw ako common sense sabi sa pinoyguns haha

seriously, college is for everyone basta mature na utak
Madami students here sa uplb studying online from abroad who are older pero undergrads who want to finish, or nag masters/PhD

I'm an Electronics Engineer by profession. In the previous companies I've joined the I.T. folks (programers, Com Sci) get the best pay for entry level positions. This is also true for experienced people even if they don't handle people (management positions)... I have a friend who is an HR manager who had his fair share employers, the experienced IT folks command a good price - and sometimes walk away from their offer since they can get employement here or abroad.

Ditto on machining. Everyone I know that has a machine shop, at least in the U.S., cannot find enough quality help. People that actually know how to cut metal are in BIG demand.

All the Best,

Suggest look for something towards engineering robotics. That is big bucks future and will be a specialization in demand.

Everything is going towards robotics from military drones, mars rover and soon there will be civilian application for all of these.

Obviously the tech is secret but eventually they will filter to civilian use.
