Internship or on the job training is one way by which we students are given an opportunity to apply the theories and computations that we have learned from school. It also helps us to obtain applicable knowledge and skills by performing in actual work setting. Colleges and universities require their students to undergo such training within a specific number of hours as part of the curriculum.
On-the-job training is significant because it takes skills training into the real world, and teaches students to produce in a different, more adult, environment.
The purpose of this OJT is to provide us students with a complete and balanced education and to develop our talent and skills for future plans. It is a way of changing the student’s outlook in life through exposure in the performance of actual work relevant to it that may serve as a stepping-stone for future career. It also develops interpersonal relationship with other employees.
For us students, an OJT or internship program provides opportunities to go through the actual methodologies of a specific job using the real tools documents etc. In effect, the work place becomes a development venue for us student trainee to learn more about our chosen field and practice what we have learn from academy.
On the other hand, a valuable OJT program also profits the companies who accept trainees. First OJT or intern provides extra manpower for a less significant labor cost than a regular employee. Most of them are all eager to learn the ropes so chances are high that they’ll be given a chance to work on the same company as an employee after graduating.
Employers can use this internship strategy as method in recruiting employees. Since the trainer or supervisor can follow the trainees’ progress, he can gauge based on performance, behavior and attitude if the trainee will make good recruit after the completion of his internship.
