I. The Problem and its Background

There were two fresh graduates of Hotel and Restaurant Management. One

graduated from an elite school and the other one graduated from a TESDA

accredited school. They both started to seek for a job in the field that they specialize

in. They were both accepted on a prestigious hotel. The one that graduated from an

elite school thought that he was hired because of his school’s reputation, and the

other one who graduated from a TESDA accredited school thought that the reason

why he was hired is because of his skills and ability.

Nowadays, HRM students may not be aware of the qualifications set by their

prospective employers. They may not be fully equipped and prepared for the

challenges they may face during the process of their job hunting.
