The San Juanico Bridge (also known as Marcos Bridge) is among the longest bridges in the Philippines and in Southeast Asia, with a total length of 2.2 kilometers (1.36 miles). It has 43 spans rising 41 meters above sea level and an arch that allows sea vessels to pass beneath it.

The bridge is part of the Pan-Philippine Highway (Maharlika Highway). It crosses San Juanico Strait, bridging the islands of Samar and Leyte. It connects Tacloban City on the Leyte side and the town of Santa Rita on the Samar side. It takes approximately 10 minutes to cross from Tacloban City by passenger jeepney, bus, or private vehicle. The strait below the bridge has numerous islets and whirlpools that offers picturesque views. It is popularly believed that this bridge was presented by the late President Ferdinand Marcos to his first lady Imelda Romualdez-Marcos as a testimony of his love.

Always keep yourself informed and updated. Always take time to learn. Take crash courses, get certifications, read books and magazines, or study online tutorials, ebooks, and blogs. Do some volunteer work. It would benefit you and your employer since you can gain valuable work experience while your employer can get the job done for free. Every experience counts.
