THE PROBLEM AND IT’S BACKGROUND
“Competition tends to force everyone to get better.”
In an increasingly competitive employment arena, Filipinos must prepare for and secure strong, definite jobs which lead them to long-term realistic career options and opportunities. It is not beyond our knowledge that Hotel and Restaurant Management is one of the most taken curriculums nowadays. As a matter of fact, it covers 38% of the most enrolled college course next to Nursing and Education as stated in Academic-clinic.com administered by Cedric Lenoue. Hospitality industry is indeed a flexible and wide range area of knowledge; it has a lot to offer, encompassing the food and travel industry. One of the fastest growing sectors of the economy of our time is the hospitality industry. The hospitality industry alone is a multi-billion dollar and growing enterprise. It is exciting, never boring and offers unlimited opportunities.

This was during the term of Bishop Afredo Versoza of the Diocese of Lipa, which included the province of Laguna, and the city of San Pablo. In 1947, the Jesuit Fathers converted the former Seminary, which was partially damaged by the Japanese forces, into a secondary school. It was named ATENEO DE SAN PABLO.
