Importance of On the Job Training

Date Posted: Feb 16, 2009

 
 

On the job Training are part of a college curriculum that aims to train and orient students about the work and their future career. OJT is very important not only to teach students their chosen career but to show students the reality about working. 

 

On the Job Training is very important and should not be taken for granted, here’s why:

  • Aside from the high evaluation grade that you will receive from the employer, the employer may absorbed or offer you a job after graduation.
  • Your background OJT experience is very important when applying a job. Employers often asked about the OJT experience and how it is related on the job that you are applying for.
  • The OJT experience that you have can land you a great job. Especially in Media related jobs, most employers often asked and require an OJT experience from a media company. For instance, a news writer who is applying in a TV Network has great advantage if he/she has an OJT experience in a Media company like TV, Radio or Publishing.
  • Your superior in the company that you are working for as an OJT may recommend your skills to the company affiliates or to other company that he/she knows.
  • OJT will be your training ground. If you still have no idea on what is meant to be a worker, OJT will give you at least 10% of career realities.
  • The company that you are currently applying in often makes a background check to successful applicants. If you have included your OJT adviser or employer in your character references, the company may contact them to ask information about your skills and knowledge as their student or intern.
  • You can consider your OJT experience as your guide on your first days at work, especially if your OJT and current work are related. You can use your experience and observation as an OJT to your current job if you still have issues on adjustments.

 

Most students have taken their OJT for granted; not realizing the importance it can bring on their future career. Having a good performance during OJT is very important especially now that there’s a tight competition towards job seekers and the high qualification of companies.
