In a fret dealing with the OJT program you’re in? Don’t be – it’s temporary after all! But regardless of it being temporary, you need to make a good and able impression to pass it. So if you find yourself of some needed pick-me-ups during your OJT, try watching some movies to boost up your mood! Check out some of these choice flicks:
500 Days of Summer
It’s a must, when you find yourself in a drag, to watch this movie. Tom, a young, under-accomplished postcard writer, fell in love with the vibrant Summer. Chaos – typical of any romantic relationship – ensues, leading into Tom to review his life’s stand. What makes this movie so appealing for OJTs is its approach – artsy, yet popular at the same time, just right for the young, underdog crowd. Also, OJTs can learn how to prioritize what they need in life, that they would need to separate the “real” from the “ideal”.
If you feel like being the new – or youngest – guy in a company is a curse, then watch this movie. William Miller, an accelerated student (at age 15, about to graduate from a University), feels the pain and struggles of being the youngest guy in a group. Age is such a matter for him, that most publishers (William’s a good – yet aspiring journalist) reject his work when they find out how old he is. Having to land a chance to write for Rolling Stone (by faking his age), he then gets an assignment to write about a rock band. What follows is a coming-to-age story, of has-beens and dreams. Almost Famous would resonate well with OJTs mainly because of William. Sometimes, age can be a factor. But that doesn’t mean you can’t live and love your dreams because of it.
Yes, the epic movie! OJTs will get a thrill on relieving Leonidas fight with the Persians. It’s like work, actually – no matter the odds, if you plan and face problems head on, you can accomplish anything. No Persian magic, assassin or army will defy you in your work! Plus, the line, “THIS IS SPARTA” is a good way to boost one’s ego!
Inspiring yourself to finish your OJT program can be done by simply watching movies. Make sure to watch these movies to pull yourself up – if you’ve dug yourself a hole! Good luck with your OJT program, and hope you have a productive day!
