Unemployment remains high in the country. Despite that the government is aware of the problem and keeps on supplementing best solutions to address the situation, still unemployment grows rapidly and continuous to increase every year.

One contributing factor of unemployment is the over-subscription versus the under-subscription of courses. We must then prioritize the under-subscription courses like law or any other graduate studies and give them substance in terms of the licensure performance than of technical courses that are considered full loaded and are less to prioritize.

Second factor, ineffective structure of career guidance analysis. Due to ineffective counseling, it can affect a student's (or a graduate) performance in terms of productivity, of what course he or she's up to take and the more correlated.

The third factor is inefficient on-the-job training program of students. These only explains that a student's training should be related to the course took.

TI Apprenticeship Program

For years, TI Philippines has continued developing qualified interns effectively through their Apprenticeship Program, a 5 month training program accredited by TESDA which provides an opportunity to skilled and qualified fresh college graduates to develop their knowledge on actual basis and a chance to be employed in the company. It's also considered as one of the finest program that TI serves.

Job Hunting

The TI Philippines Apprenticeship Qualifying Exam was held on November 10, 2009 in Baguio City, The Teachers Camp.

I took the qualifying examination together with my classmates. We were the fourth and the last batch of entrants to take the exam. It consists of six different parts (at least one and a half hours to finish the entire examination): reasoning, verbal and non-verbal, arithmetic, assembly and the main exam.

It was quite good exam, not too easy nor difficult. We waited three to four hours for the result and it was worthy then because we passed it.

  2. Since TI Philippines to my knowledge don't have their own website and don't accept walk-in applicants, please do visit the company's Jobstreet Info page instead for additional details of their apprenticeship and career programs. I hope this will help you. Thanks for dropping!

  4. Hello Jhemlr! How was your qualifying exam? Is it good, bad, easy and or not? Although I am unable to respond to your concern asap, I hope you pass the TI Apprenticeship.

    By the way, regarding your question, the assembly part of the exam focuses on computer logic and technical skills while the main examination concentrates on your expertise and will depend on whether you are an IT/Computer Science or an Engineering graduate. I am pretty sure, the main exam for engineers is separate from computer majors.

  7. Apply through TI Philippines' Jobstreet page, here's the link to the site: http://impact-ph.jobstreet.com/templates/texasinpha/texasinpha_career.htm. They have job openings listed for this month, management positions for engineers. If you think you are qualified, submit your application online or if you're looking for an entry-level position just drop/deposit your resume via the resume databank. But if you want to make sure that TI Baguio have career opportunities available, do visit their site. Hope this has helped you.

  8. Hi! I am doing a research on TI and the working conditions there. I wonder, after passing the exam, were you able to actually get the post the you applied for? How is it? I hear a lot of good things about TI in terms of salaries and benefits, at least at the international level, but how is it here in the Philippines? Thanks!
