Internships for Marketing Students in Makati

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

Marketing is a very popular college course in the Philippines. There are a lot of great job opportunities in big and multinational companies upon graduation, and you could penetrate different industries. But to get a good start on your career, you should first start on a good company to have your internship in.

Internships for Marketing Students in Makati Marketing

But in the world of Marketing, more than the name of the company, its reputation for giving good internship programs should be your top priority. In the end, credentials are only words in paper, but good training will take you farther. If you are not sure what you’re looking for in companies to have your internship in, here are some things that you should do and not overlook. There are a lot of internships for Marketing students, but you should be able to select a handful of really good ones that will be able to provide you with good training.

Research about the company. Remember that a known name does not always equate to a good training program. And just because a big corporation has very good opportunities for fresh graduates and regular job hunters, it doesn’t necessarily follow that they take care of their interns as much as their regular employees. Find out if the company will really be able to hand you tasks related to your course, or if you are just going to be an accessory or an assistant without any real goal to complete.

Internships for Marketing Students in Makati Research

Research about the nature of the job. Some companies assign their interns specific tasks for a specific period of time, while others provide you with a progression of projects that you should complete and from which you could learn a lot more about Marketing. An internship shouldn’t be an extension of your class homeworks. It should already be a taste of a real job, and a company willing to offer you that is ready to train you for the things you will do in the future.

Research for more options. There are a lot of industries you could tap in with your course. Marketing is an essential part of a business, so you should first determine your strong points before even searching for internships for Marketing students. Gauge yourself if you are usually able to present yourself better when it comes to sports, communication arts, lifestyle, or travel.

Once you have considered these things, it’s easy enough to find internships for Marketing students. In Makati alone, there are already a lot of companies looking for OJTs in Marketing. All you have to do is figure out first what you want to get out of the internship program, find a company who will really be able to deliver, and do your best!

Work Ethics for OJTs – Which of These Mistakes Are You Committing?

Friday, June 11th, 2010

One of the most important things that OJTs can get out of their internship, more than the technical skills, are work ethics. These are as essential as any of the other skills you are going to learn. Without these, your internship will be in vain, and you will not have learned anything at all after two or three months. To those who will be having their OJTs in the coming semester, and to those who are still having them, here are just some of the most important OJT blunders that you will have to avoid for you to learn the proper work ethics.

1.Being late and not informing your direct supervisor about it. A lot of college students get away with tardiness in their college classes, partly because some professors are more lenient to their attendance. But that doesn’t mean that it is allowable in the workplace. Being an OJT means that you are accepting the role of a regular employee, and forgetting about being a student, if only for a few months. That means that you should adhere to the office rules, and not act as if you are going to get away with your tardiness just because you are student. Naturally, the same goes with absences. We all know that in college, excuse letters are not required because depends only the professor. However, during the internship, you are not just going to the office for the sake of completing your hours. You report to the office to have work done, and being absent (and not informing your supervisor about it) will affect the work of everyone else in the office.

Work Ethics for OJTs late

2.Not adhering to dress codes. Some students think that they will look cool dressing like a teenager in the workplace because they will standout from everyone else, but that’s wrong. Your internship is a perfect place for you to learn how to dress properly for when you’re already working. Following the dress code in the office not only creates a good impression to your superiors but also gives you a sense of being professional, puts you in a good mood and lets you do your job better. In short, it’s win-win situation.

Work Ethics for OJTs  dress code

3.Using social networking sites in the office. It’s unbelievable but there are some interns who actually think it’s okay to log in to Facebook or use Yahoo! Messenger while in the office, even when the bosses are around. It’s not ethical by default, even if your boss doesn’t call your attention because of it. You have to take it upon yourself to know these things because there is no superpower dictating that these are wrong. It only takes logic to realize it.

4.Not being courteous to superiors. There are OJTs who don’t greet their superiors good morning or even say hello when they meet at the corridors, on account of their being shy. But that shouldn’t be the case, because, believe me, no one should be shy enough to not even greet someone good morning unless it’s a pathological condition, in which case should be reported to the supervisors to be dealt with accordingly. Another courtesy issue is OJTs saying “no” to work given to them. While we are not perfect and cannot do everything that will be assigned to us, a little effort in trying wouldn’t hurt. It could actually go a long way, instead of rejecting the request of your boss flatly. Even if you can’t do the job, tell your boss that you are not sure if you can, but you will still try. That way, if ever you really can’t accomplish it, at least you gave your boss the heads up, and if you do accomplish it, then you learned something new.

Work Ethics for OJTs uncorteous

5.Not having respect for office property. You are going to work in an office and going to use some of the office equipment. It is just proper that you take care whatever you use in there because a) it’s not yours, b) you will be liable for anything you break or lose, and c) it’s not a good impression if you do.

6.Badmouthing the company after the OJT experience. Not all OJTs will have a wonderful experience with their internship, that’s the bitter truth. But that’s not an excuse to tell all your friends how much of an annoyance your boss had been, or how your office life had been like a concentration camp where all sources of happiness have been sucked dry. Not only will this reflect a bad reputation on YOU, but it might also be a cause of bad karma for you in the future. Moreover, even if you did have a bad experience during your internship, it still doesn’t follow that you didn’t learn anything. Every experience, may it be bad or good, is a learning experience. So if you can’t look at your internship any other way, at least look at it that way.

 

There are more things to learn during your OJT, so don’t neglect the simple office rules because they will come in handy in the future when you’re already working on your full-time job. So better keep these things in mind to help you cope with office life easier in the future. You may not believe it right now, but it will help you later on.

While this is a good dream, it may not be as realistic as you think. So the best thing to do is set out a tangible goal that you can actually see yourself achieving. Having a clear goal makes you look more responsible and driven.

Set Your Own Personal Standards: if you haven’t noticed it already, the key to a successful interview is being clear about everything and not relying on ready-made responses. By having your own standards professionally, you are showing that you are serious about being hired and starting a job.

Why Is There a Need to Have an OJT?

Some Straight Talk About Starting Your Career

There are a lot of interns in the Philippines who are absorbed by the company and get to instantly start their career the way they want to. These people are wise enough to be very clear about what they want to get out of their OJT and so they were able to find exactly what they were looking for. No one wants to put on an office attire, commute an hour to get to the office and only make sure that the coffee is made and all the files are stapled to perfection.

College students, especially those who are taking their internships have a lot to offer, and no one wants an internship that is menial or boring. As much as possible, they want to be able to use everything they learned in school and apply it to a real job—a chance to test the waters, if you must say.

So if you want to make sure that your internship is going to give you the experience you are looking for to jump start your career as early as now, here are key tips to make it happen, from finding the right jobs in the Philippines to making sure you stick to it.

Why Is There a Need to Have an OJT Career

First of all, determine exactly what you want to get out of your internship. Achieving a goal is easy if you have it written down or at least have it clearly figured out. It;s difficult to go to battle without a strategy or objective, and so is joining the workforce without any goal in mind. You should figure out if you are looking for jobs in which you’ll be able to utilize all your skills and which can help you later on to get started in the industry you are targeting.

Second, if you already have a goal at hand, it’s time to start looking for the right sources of OJT jobs. Your school is the first place almost everyone checks to help them with, but if you are included in the 5,000 would-be graduates, it’s difficult to find a really good internship source because of the competition. As an alternative, you can ask your relatives about people they might now who are working in the same industry as you are so you can get a head start immediately. If you still can’t find a company that you think is going to help achieve your goal, it’s start to go online. OJT Careers is an example of a great resource for job postings specifically intended for OJTs. You can easily choose your field and browse the updated list of job postings in OJT Careers every day.

Why Is There a Need to Have an OJT Sources

Third, be ready to commit to your chosen job and go out of your comfort zone once in a while. Remember that it’s a two-way street. You have to learn how to deal with things differently and keep up the good work you’ve been doing to be able to gain the kind of experience that you want. Sure you have expectations in your OJT but you also be prepared to do your part.

Lastly, enjoy your job! Take note of the skills you develop, people you meet, and all the experience you go through, whether positive or negative, because it will be able to help you to be prepared for a great career when you finally graduate. Who knows, there might even be a job opportunity in the company you are having your OJT in just in time for you graduation, and with all the experience you already have, you will have an unfair advantage against other applicants, especially if you maintained a very good record when you were having your OJT.

Why Is There a Need to Have an OJT Good Job

With the number of graduates increasing every year, competition is getting much tighter and more intense. Having said this, the only way to get ahead of everyone else is to get started as early as possible and a good OJT experience is a surefire way to achieve it.
