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.
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.
