Technical-Vocational Course – Stepping Stone to Success

Bago pa man dumating ang graduation ng High School, nag-set na ako ng plano sa aking buhay.

I was aware that sending me to College would be expensive for my parents. This was my basis to come up with a decision in taking a 2-year course first, then find a job and continue my education for a 4-year degree course.

I prayed to God and submitted my dreams to guide me and show me the right way to walk through. I was surprised when I received a letter from MSC regarding my 100% scholarship for a short course in Computer Operation. I was surprised … then I grabbed that opportunity.

On 1997, I finished my 2-year Computer Technology Course, which was full of training and hands-on experiences.

Ang hirap mag-apply ng trabaho! Buti na lang nandyan ang MSC para pansamantalang kanlungan at lalo ka pang bibigyan ng mga actual training. MSC gave me priceless skills and abilities which I treasure up to now. Ito ang nagamit ko sa aking kasalukuyan trabaho upang mapa-bilib ang mga boss ko, Akala kasi nila magaling ako, ang di nila alam MSC ang nagturo sa akin noon.

I was recommended by the President of MSC, Sir Ike to CARD Bank, Inc. I was interviewed by the President of CARD Bank and hired as (probationary) IT Assistant. After 5 months I received my regular appointment and later promoted to IT Officer.

After five years of working with CARD Bank, I decided to resume my studies and took up Accountancy. I was promoted to IT Manager, and later graduated from College.

What drives me to improve my career? Maybe I was influenced by my late father who was a teacher. My father was a working student. Magtatapas (coconut farmer) siya sa umaga at napasok sa gabi. Naging 2nd honor siya noong high school at 1st honor noong college. Hindi naging sagabal kay itay ang pagiging mahirap para makapagtapos.

I may have not received any honors during my study like my father. He may not see me now and witness what I have accomplished. But I hope he is happy for me and proud of me, “My son is now a Certified Public Accountant!”.

How MSC Helped Me Find The Right Career

My life at VYP-MSC  Institute of Technology is something that I will always be proud of, and look back to. Its good people and the friendly learning experience helped me find out more about my abilities and interests. Thanks to the decision I made to take Office Management Course at MSC. My certificate has certainly served as my passport to my career.

In my entire career, I never saw myself working in stressful business environments till I made my very hard decision of leaving the country eight years ago, armed with the dream of finding greener pasture. My new start abroad wasn’t very disappointing as I found a job after a month in a huge oil and gas organization. Carrying my valid MSC certificate, good computer skills, knowledge and good training plus my faith in God, I was given the chance to work as a Project Secretary in the offshore project team. That was the first entry-level job I had which was not easy for me in the beginning – working with a multi-cultural team.

Like any other Filipino worker, I experienced discrimination, being the only Filipino and female member in the project team. However, with each passing day, I felt it funny that people started coming to me for help. It was undeniably my computer skills and not-so-bad English skills that have helped me to survive and gain respect from my co-workers.

The secretarial course is in high demand in every business settings. It is a course which must be encouraged. I found job stability with this career and indeed opened for me other career options. My good accounting training at MSC led me to my present job, responsible for administrative and accounting functions.

I can say every school will give a piece of paper that would help one to acquire knowledge and skills, but very few can actually give you both, to be successful in your chosen field. This I can say: “I have found both at MSC”.

My MSC experience was indeed incredible and helped me find the right career.

I’m Louie Francis Alvarez, one of the Cleto G. Prudente Memorial Scholars. I completed my secondary education in MSC High School and took up Bachelor of Science in Statistics at the University of the Philippines, Los Baños.  After graduation, I was able to get a job as a Data Quality Consultant in Pan Pacific Computer Center Inc. (PPCC) and then after a few years I worked as a Technical Analyst in Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC). I also worked overseas in a multinational bank as a Senior SAS Analyst Programmer in Standard Chartered Scope International Malaysia.

I’m very grateful that I was given the privilege to be a scholar in one of the private school in the city that helped me prepare to face the college life and the real world. This life-changing opportunity was made possible by Sir Ike, who has supported my education since the beginning of my high school and who still believed in me despite all the things that happened. The support that was provided to me does not covers tuition fee only but also includes almost all of the things I needed to complete my studies. This includes a monthly allowance that helped me join extra-curricular activities such as joining the camps of the Boy Scout of the Philippines and contests. This not only provided me with the much needed education but has also given me the chance to experience things that I would not have learned in school.

If it were not for the financial assistance given to me by Prudente family, I would not have been able to continue and finish my college education and help my family to have a better life. Because of this, I was able to help and assist my brothers and sisters to complete their schooling too. Two of them already completed their college degree while three of my other siblings are still in college level. I’m hoping that they will finish their studies in next two to three years so I can also help other children with their schooling.

What I learned from MSC was my shining armor when I applied for a job in Makati. My Internet Technology course introduced me not only to the latest technology but also to a problem-based and team-centered study approach. I have also experienced how to handle problems in the field of Desktop Publishing and Web Designing that gave me confidence in my current work.
