objective of this tracer study was to determine the level of employability of the
graduates of the Baliuag University in the course Bachelor of Science in
Accountancy (BSA) covering the school year 2009-2010 to 2011-2012. This study

terms of their job positions, status of employment, length of service with their
respective companies; number of months or years that took the graduates to secure
their first job; the difficulties they encountered in looking for their first job, and the
reason/s for leaving their jobs. The researchers tapped 59 out of the 74 BSA
