Abstract:

This tracer study on the Bachelor of Arts in English graduates used a survey form and tracked respondents via electronic mail (e-mail), social networking sites, and personal meetings. Seventy four (74) graduates of the Bachelor of Arts in English from batch 2007 to 2011 were the respondents of the study. The data were analyzed using frequency, percentage and rank. Findings showed that most of the respondents entered the world of teaching in private, and multinational or foreign institutions. Others worked as customer service representative, tutor, academic consultant, staff and banker among others. Most of the graduates were regular or permanent employees. In terms of salary, most of them received Php 10, 000.00 to Php 15, 000.00. Some received below Php 10, 000.00 and above Php 15000 to Php 25, 000.00. Most of the graduates also perceived that they have workplace adaptability, communication skills and technical skills in the field. The top three skills that the AB English graduates perceived to have been contributed by the AB English program were proficiency in written English, specialized in the field and analytical skills. However, the lowest three skills were proficiency in spoken Filipino, proficiency in written Filipino and IT skills. Results also showed that most graduates landed a job in less than a month; others landed a job in 1 to 6 months, while few landed a job in 7 to 11 months. Some graduates, on the other hand, were enrolled as part-time or full-students in Bachelor of Laws, Master of Arts in English and Diploma in Teaching. Although most graduates pursued their teaching career in the country, some of them worked abroad as English teachers. Among the respondents, 55 were employed in Iloilo City, 12 were employed in the country but outside of Iloilo City, and 7 were employed abroad.
