(CATI) Systems. Within a team, we designed, developed and implemented specialized databases and programs/procedures. Modified and enhanced the existing databases to captured information
required by the client. I also worked with the Business Analyst Officer and tasked to tracked data request through comprehensive tracking tool to identify and update data request and backlog.
In 1993, I was offered an overseas job of a computer programmer by one of the leading building construction in Hong Kong – New Hopes Construction Co. Ltd. and
engaged in construction and maintenance works for Hong Kong Housing Authority. I worked in the Maintenance Department focused on preparation of bills for the different projects and
building maintenance with the Housing Authority. Being part of the company, I’ve had the opportunity to work in various areas of the Record Section. I designed and developed the
electronic billing and the database system of the company and efficiently organized batch job order scheduling, tendering and bidding contract, computation and billing for the daily
work done in the Housing Department of Hong Kong. I returned in the Philippines in December, 2004.
In January, 2005, I was hired as a Computer Programmer by the Local Government Unit of Bula, Camarines Sur Philippines or known as LGU-Bula. LGU-Bula is a government entity which
was institutionalized in 1991 through Republic Act 7160 also known as the Local Government Code of the Philippines. I worked under the Office of the Mayor whose main duty and function is to
implement vital programs and projects of the local government for the benefit of its constituents. It has an over-all administrative supervision and control over the different local offices.
The Mayor’s office is also an overseer of the operations of the local offices making sure that the local peripheries are effectively and efficiently performing their tasks. I worked with ten (10) other personnel in my office.
My task as a Computer Programmer was not limited to the Office of the Municipal Mayor alone. I am also responsible in the computer operations, maintenance and hardware installation of the
various local offices as they are under the supervision of the Municipal Mayor’s Office. I regularly meet with the different department heads in order to collaborate with them on the
programs and services that their office provide to the public, this is to give me an idea on how I can design, develop and make software/hardware programs to meet their office’ needs. This
also helped me analyze and conceptualize the kind of program that is needed and required.
I developed, and created the Municipal Payroll System, Collection and Accounting System, Real Property Tax Collection System, Land Tax Billing System, Attendance Management System and the
Municipal Water Works Billing System which effectively innovated the slow processing of the office transactions before. The programs which I have designed and installed for the Treasury Office,
Accounting Office, Bula Municipal Waterworks System Office and Human Resource Management Office were written and coded in Microsoft Visual Foxpro and were properly monitored and maintained by me
on a daily basis. Likewise, I regularly collaborate with the users to check and analyze new system requirements that will meet new policies or programs of the office.
