Abstract
This tracer study was conducted to determine the employment status of the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics graduates from SY 2013-2014 until SY 2017-2018 of the College of Arts and Sciences of Main Campus I Batangas State University. Specifically, it determined the profile of the graduates in terms of age, gender, civil status, region of origin, highest degree earned, professional examination passed, present occupation, employment status, first job after graduation, manner of finding a job, and the reason for taking the course or pursuing the degree. It also determined the respondents’ job searching period from the date of graduation as well as the relevance of the BS Mathematics curriculum in their workplace, their reasons for staying in the job, the skills they learned which are relevant to their present job. Findings of the study revealed that that there is balance as to the gender of the graduates of the BS Mathematics program; the graduates considered the availability of the chosen academic institution in pursuing their degree; BS Mathematics curriculum is relevant in the jobs that the BS Mathematics graduates acquired; the salaries and financial benefits were the most important considerations why the graduates stayed in their jobs and skills learned by the respondents were found relevant to their present jobs.
