   The study was done to determine the employment status and employer's feedback relative to the academic performance of 2014-2015 graduates of the College of Respiratory Therapy at UPH-DJGTMU. The graduate's employment status was traced and whether their acquired skills and competencies affect their employment were assessed. Results show that 52% of the respondents are females, who graduated with B.S. Respiratory Therapy degree in S.Y. 2014. All respondents are employed with 96% of them working in health and sciences. Regular employees receive a monthly salary ranging P5,000 to P10,000. Forty eight percent of the graduates have been hired after one to three months of looking a job. Based on results, the top three important factors considered by employers are: 1) scholastic performance; 2) Personality and area of specialization; and 3) getting the job by chance. Conducting research to achieve excellent academic performance particularly on major subjects is also essential for immediate employment. The students should also hone qualities that contribute to developing a good personality. School administrator and teachers should convince Respiratory Theraphy students to study harder and aim for higher grades that are required by most employers. For future studies, researchers can conduct similar study too what happens to the graduates, to measure the success or failure of the school, and to know the variables that school administrators should consider to enhance the school curriculum.
