The researchers used the unified/institutional checklist questionnaire, which applies to all the colleges in the institution, to conduct a tracer study. This descriptive survey research is the first institutional tracer study of the school. Every college of the institution had done their respective share of conducting a tracer study but they have their set of questions to ask from their graduates. Through the unified survey questionnaire, the 912 respondents across the Colleges were able to give relevant information based on uniform questions. As a result of the study, the researchers found that the respondents’ main reason in choosing their present profession is that it is aligned with their degree programs. The respondents’ academic program through their professional courses had helped them grasp the needed knowledge in their degree. Co- Curricular activities were big help in bringing out the full potential of the respondents, and it is part of their training/skills-enhancement in human relations. However, facilities were not fully maximized in helping the respondents during their school days. During their pre- employment stage, limited quota of the number of employees to be accepted in the job; and the failure in passing the job-prescribed examination were the topmost problems experienced by the respondents in their application for their first job. The respondents rated very satisfactory the quality of education offered by the institution. The researchers formulated an employability action plan to help the graduating students develop their employability traits, to get a job that matches their taken degree program the soonest possible time upon graduation.
