“Once you enter what everyone call as “real world”, just always remember that career success requires inconvenience, struggle, and patience from your end.”
“LPU-Laguna has armed me with relevant competencies and values that helped me overcome my own naivety and boxed idealism towards work, allowing me to naturally deal with all kinds of demands career life has been flinging at me. More importantly, Lyceum has strongly imbued in me the sense of grit and confidence, that regardless of age, inexperience, and difficulty, I will be able to share something valuable to our organization, as long as I won’t get intimidated and fed up of speaking up and bringing relevant ideas on the table. LPU-Laguna has indeed, transformed me from a grade conscious-type student to a well-rounded individual, who was able to enjoy college life and joggle academics along with involvements on different organizations and student councils.
Apart from these, the opportunity of being an academic scholar has greatly impacted my motivation, perseverance, and sense of indebtedness as a person.
For future practicioners, always think about the career you’d like to pursue after college and make it clear to yourself that there’s no fast pass available to easily get there. Success do not come by luck or chance, it is being sought amidst difficulties and disadvantages, so if you really want to have a career you’ll be proud of someday, exhaust all the energy, wit, and grit you have in your 4 or 5 years in the university.
After all, LPU-Laguna won’t leave you working alone; they’ll develop and prepare you to be career-ready, ethical, and emotionally intelligent young professionals. And once you enter what everyone call as “real world”, just always remember that career success requires inconvenience, struggle, and patience from your end. ”
