Finding a good and reliable company for On-the-Job training was difficult and it really requires hard work and patience. Together with a classmate, we searched for possible companies that accepts OJT's. we've been to Toyota and Mitsubishi Motor Company, PLDT, PhilAm Life Insurance, Western Union, SM Mall, Globe and other Banking Companies. Some of the companies have told us that there were no more slots for OJT's and the worst scenario is that they don't accept job trainees. Some may also require us to have special skills like dancing before we will be accepted as their trainees. Most often, the security guards are more accommodating and patient than the customer relations officer in answering our inquiries regarding the requirements for OJT's. These reasons have made us decide to grab the offer of our instructor and/or adviser to accept the offer from a well respected company. Thanks for companies like this who opens the door for us students to be trained and developed to become one of the best employee we aim to be.

I understand the disappointment. Yes, I agree that sometimes guards are more accommodating than those who are in a higher position (sucks) The companies should not neglect or decline students for their OJT's. I think it is time that schools must do something about this matter- they should be the one to make arrangement with the companies where the student can have their OJT's to avoid such rejection and disappointment.

Well, the most important thing is that you have to enjoy the job. It's hard because you have to get experience because you need that in your future work. It's a great start for you and it will help you not get shock when you actually are in a work environment already. Those companies you've mentioned are good companies to start with.

Thank goodness, I did not experienced that difficulty during my college years. In our school, the staff and faculty of our department were the ones who looked for the companies we were going to have that On the Job Training and most of us have been in the government agencies. The faculty have been be difficult in looking for the companies who accepts On the Job Training most especially the private ones.
