Saint Louis University is looking for a long list of employees, for teaching and non-teaching positions. Unfortunately, the Roman Catholic school also has a long list of requirements for applicants.

Good news: certificate that you bought at least one Magnum Ice Cream stick in the past two weeks is not needed.

SLU is undeniably a top school. Call the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) office for more information. The school does not need advertisements and ambassadors to be able to win the hearts of people.

Congratulations to new Social Workers from SLU! They remain low profiles in the society but they have done great things just like Spiderman. Social workers should join The Avengers.

Meanwhile, I have a puzzle: “It is an IT school, without a website”.
Prize: Free lecture on how to turn the computer on and off.
Clue 1: It is a well-advertised school.
Clue 2: No more clues, please. It’s very obvious. Just buy a local newspaper.

No to Discrimination

I would like also to criticize a Christian School. I will not reveal the name of the school because it is not a worth mentioning institution.

This school keeps on including this message in their job opening announcement: “must be a Born Again Christian”.

Such note is unlawful, immoral, unethical and uncivilized. Laws have it that employees cannot, should not and should never hire an applicant because that applicant belongs to the same denomination.

God does not discriminate non-Born Again Christians! I may be a non-religious person but I am sure of that. What on Earth is that school thinking!

 Nursemaid? 

We welcome a new term: NURSEMAID. A nursemaid refers to a person in the Philippines who has studied BS Nursing for four years or more, passed the local Nursing board exam, and needed to work but cannot find a nursing job. It is a downgrade of “Nurse Volunteer” and an upgrade of “Caregiver”. Pitiful!

It may sound bitter that let the reality justify my claims. There are thousands and thousands of new nurses. The number of health institutions around the country cannot accommodate them all.

Thus some end up working in call centers, English as a Second Language schools and networking businesses. Others remain unemployed. That is the reality. That is the truth that is very hard to accept.

RIP Deans


Rest in Peace Dr. Mary Jane Luquey Laruan, Dean of Benguet State University College of Teacher Education. She passed away last June 22. She was my LET reviewer at the BSU LET Enhancement program last year. She was good, like any other BSU staff member.

She passed away days after SLU former Dean of School of Teacher Education Dr. Corazon Bomogao’s died.

May the two educators meet in heaven and continue discussion about the Department of Education’s K to 12 Program.


Just a thought:

DEMANDED public apology is never SINCERE. How can a person be true to what he is expressing if he was ordered to do so!
