Helpful Tips in Choosing an Online MBA Program

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

Masters in Business Administration is one of the most sought after degrees today. The reason behind this is that as the world moves forward to a more corporate economy, company qualifications for their employees become more competitive. An MBA-holder is likely to be what they are looking for. So as an eager young adult who wishes to have the edge that all companies seem to be looking for, you take the plunge and earn yourself that degree. But how? Juggling your full time work and responsibilities at home doesn’t give you the required time necessary to enroll in a business school. Not to worry. More than half of all MBAs granted in the United States over the last decade or so have been to part time students.

An online MBA Program allows you to finish the degree in the limited time that you have. And considering it’s online, all you need is a good Internet connection and you’re all set. However, the next step here is choosing the best online MBA Program for you. This requires much attention and keen selection because you wouldn’t want to invest your time and money to a fly-by-night scheme.

1. Decide what is best for you

Consider the situation you are in right now and what sort of program you are open to. That way you will know how to eliminate unnecessary ones and focus on those that would meet your needs. Some students prefer the occasional “meeting program” in an actual school setting, whereas others may not have the time for it. Some need to accomplish their MBA as soon as possible, whereas for other,s they can only allot a limited amount of time a day. Understanding your needs and knowing what you want will help narrow down the choices.

2. Look into its History, Background and Accreditation

You will know if an institution is offering high quality education if the programs they offer are accredited by legitimate accrediting bodies. A look into the school’s background as well as its faculty members and their qualifications can help you in determining your choice.

3. Check your financial status

Sometimes, employers take it upon themselves to financially aid their employees in their continuing education. If that’s not the case, review your finances and find a program that is within your spending means. Although better career opportunities await you once you finish your degree, remember that it is not something that will happen instantaneously. Try not to be overwhelmed by your unseen future and focus on the situation at hand. Be realistic and don’t overspend on what you cannot afford.

Your continuing education shouldn’t be something that you take for granted. With the slight difference of it being online, you should treat the MBA Program with the same enthusiasm and seriousness you would in a classroom education. Remember that you are exerting this much effort for your own professional growth, so take it seriously and soon you will reap the rewards.

Top 4 Reasons Why You Should Attend the OJT Careers Seminar

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Everyone goes through the job hunting process like an awful initiation rite—scared, no idea of what’s going to happen despite warnings, but ready for whatever will happen. But contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to step out into the real world blindly. There are a lot of help these days that you could incorporate in your job hunting so that you won’t come out of it with only more questions than answers.

While fresh graduates today are becoming bolder when it comes to job hunting, there are still people who don’t know what to do during a gruesome written test, or don’t know how to answer an uncomfortable question. For everyone—because you can never get too much help when it comes to job hunting in the Philippines—here are 4 reasons why you should definitely attend the OJT Careers seminar, aside of course from the fact that the speakers are awesome.

# 4 New Perspective

Yes, there have been career seminars before, and as a fresh grad you have most likely been subjected to a day of mandatory attendance to one of the workshops organized by the school. But let’s face it, you didn’t really pay attention to that seminar after you signed your name on the attendance sheet, did you?

Forget boring seminars where you keep hearing the old stuff. There’s a reason that they’re called old in this new age. Trends keep changing, employers’ standards change. That’s why you should keep up with the demands of today’s industries. And that’s exactly what you’re going to get from attending the OJT Careers seminar. Fresh perspective from people who have insider information from both employers and applicants—first-hand!

# 3 In depth Discussion

It’s time that you get the exact help that you need from the people who know what they’re talking about. It’s about time you get to participate in the discussion—ask questions that’s on your mind and get the answers from the employers themselves.

Also, learn about job interview secrets that have baffled other applicants before; discover what makes job interviews scary and nerve-racking and how you could overcome both.

# 2 Lots of Interaction

A seminar should not be one-way. The success of any seminar/class/workshop does not depend solely on the ones conducting it but on the audience as well. The OJT Careers seminar greatly promotes interaction among everyone to keep the discussion always interesting.

Forget the usual mindset that you usually have when attending seminars where all you do is sit there for hours and listen to people talking. Get ready for a fun, interactive, and awesome talks and forums given by speakers who are considered to be the best in their fields.

# 1 Free

Did we mention that this seminar is for free? All you have to do is send us an email to [email protected] to state your interest with the seminar, mention us on Twitter using our id @ojtcareers telling is you’re in, or post on our wall at http://www.facebook.com/ojtcareers.

OJT Careers Conducts an Awesome Seminar in Manila Central University

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

Last Saturday, July 3, the OJT Careers Team found themselves driving along Roxas Blvd., on the way to Caloocan to pay a visit to the Computer Studies Department in Manila Central University (MCU) and share a few things about job hunting that could help the students for when they graduate.

Geared with their presentations and some fun activities, the whole team made way for the seminar entitled, “Fire Up Your Potential with OJTCareers.com” in partnership with TrabahoPhilippines.com. The team discussed about the most important things to remember during the job application process, especially for graduating student. These included resume and cover letter writing, job hunting strategies, job interview tips, and a bonus discussion on personality development.

The team had fun in the interactive discussions mostly because the students themselves were very participative and attentive. It was very rewarding that these students were taking down pointers during the discussion and that they were asking questions that would help them when they finally join the real world and look for their first full-time job.

The discussion about personality development was especially fun because of the interaction among students. They were able to find out a lot of interesting things about themselves and their friends, all of which could help improve their perception of themselves and of others, which in turn would build their self confidence and gear them up for the competitive world of job hunting.

Overall, it’s an understatement to say that the OJT Careers seminar was a success. In truth, it was nothing short of awesome. Mr. Avonn Nova, Dean of the Computer Studies Department, Ms. Malou and Ms. Marlyn were all very accommodating. The OJT Careers Team definitely enjoyed interacting with a great crowd. And the best part about all this is that the seminar was FREE.

If you are also interested for the team to visit your school and have a free seminar just like what happened in MCU, all you have to do is send an email to [email protected]. In the meantime, here are some of the pics from the seminar. Enjoy!
