Why do you think "on the job training" is important?

Training increases the skill and ability of the employees to perform specific task. Training develop and improve certain phases of an individual's attitudes, discipline, behavior or knowledge to make him either more effective on his job or better qualified for his future job which the training endeavors develop. It is also a way to improve employees' attitude towards his job, his fellow workers, his supervisor and the firm as a whole. OJT broadens and sharpens the students' proffessional skills. It is a way of applying all the theories that we learned in lower management which is use advantageously in the actual business world. As a requirement in our school, I had applied for an OJT and finished the 300 hours of training. I have learned a lot from it. I guess it somehow boost my morale as well. I know in my heart that I can use this experience for a much higher job in the future. What is your experience? Have you undergone OJT too?

Yes, they are important. I will not be part of the curriculum if it haven't. Student attending in OJT's need to feel whats its like in the real world. Need to learn what school cannot teach, the job itself. Its also the best thing to check if a student really is ready for the world. It should be always part of the curriculum. Have been into it and spent 3 months doing it and the experience is priceless. I had to admit that it brings so much experience to me than the entire years at college. And it plays a very important role when applying for my first job.

I believe that in a certain company, they need to conduct performance evaluation to their employees. If they had determined that lack of skills, then that's the time that they will provide an appropriate trainings for them to gain more skills. Same thing with the OJT, they need to be prepared and acquire some skills.
