The Graduate Tracer Study of CHED was adopted in this study. The researchers believed that this paradigm will comprehensively explain the ideas presented in this study. The respondents where chosen through the educational qualifications, the graduates of BSHRM and BST. This study traced the nine graduates of BS Tourism and forty-one BS HRM from SY 2003-2006. They were traced from the different place of employment or self-employment.
Majority of the graduates of BS Tourism and HRM of MSEUF who participated on this study as respondents were female, 26 – 30 years old, single, graduates of year 2006 and working in the native country, Philippines, works in hospitality establishments holding a position in line with their specialization. Majority of the respondents cited that they received a gross monthly income of P 30,000.00 and above, works in abroad and hotel industry in the native country. For the respondents who are currently working abroad, majority of them did not find suitable position and job opportunity in their native country and others cited that they receive higher salary.
Skills and academic trainings have great help to the graduates in relation to their present job, that Human Relation Skills, Communication Skills, Problem Solving Skills and Technical Skills were among the skills needed on the respondents’ present job in which it can be noticed that common among these skills is that these are all with connection in interaction with other people or dealing with other people.
