As I boarded my bus bound for San Mateo, Isabela early in May 2003, I remembered a friend of mine complain about our identity as new graduates: “We’re no longer students preparing for the labor force. We’re not employed, too? So what are we? We’re unemployed.”
If you go to the branches of BPI, you’ll see about 3-4 touch screen terminals where you input the details of our transaction. You just enter your account number, the nature of your transaction and the amount involved. Your information will go directly to their system and you get a number.
But did you know that if you enrolled in the online banking system of BPI (BpiExpressOnline.com), you can also schedule your transactions online!
And then the graduation march began.
Under the heat of the sun, in the Amphitheater of UP Diliman, with the Oblation ahead of us, I found myself marching with a host of new UP graduates, eager to take our place in the wider world beyond the hallowed halls of the University of the Philippines.
