On-the-job training, sometimes called direct instruction, is one of the earliest forms of training (observational learning is probably the earliest). It is one-on-one training located at the job site, where someone who knows how to do a task shows another how to perform it. In antiquity, the kind of work that people did was mainly unskilled or semiskilled work that did not require specialized knowledge. Parents or other community members, who knew how to do a job necessary for survival, passed their knowledge on to the children through direct instruction.
Before the start of the first semester of the school year 2013-2014, my classmate and I start to look for an accounting firm for our OJT. We submitted resumes in several banks and accounting firms. The next day, one of the accounting firms (QML Bookkeeping and Management Services), texted us to come to their office for an interview. They accepted us as their trainees and orient us about their policies in the office.
June 10, 2013,Monday, was my first day in OJT as a trainee. On the way to the office at Tagapo, City of Sta. Rosa, Laguna, I felt nervous and excited at the same time. When I arrived in the office, my first duty is to pay for the clients tax, which is due for the month.
One of the employees, Ms. Arianne Vargas, instructed me first on the things that I have to do. After that, I came back to the office. My superior, Mrs. Pilar Lampa, orient me for the duties that I have to do like updating clients accounting books and answering telephone calls and how I will going to approach and entertain the clients. I have learned to be very patient and polite in answering phone calls and the right entries in journalizing.
In the first week of my training, I made a few mistakes because I am still confused about how I will going to do some of my duties like what documents do I have to put in the clients’ folders for the managements records and what documents I have to make for the client’s copy. I learned that before doing my assigned duties I have to make sure that I understand my superiors instructions to avoid mistakes, and confusion and always come back and forth to ask for the right things to do.
From that training I learned several offices work like filling the right documents on their respective folder, filling out clients’ documents that are necessary for making their financial statements, and encoding for clients’ purchases, expenses, and sales which is also the basis in computing their tax and updating clients books. I realized that doing actual work is much easier than analyzing a problem in a textbook.
I also learned how to fill up BIR forms and compute the client’s taxes for the month. I gain knowledge about some BIR rules and regulations like the due dates of the BIR forms for each month, the basis of computing taxes, and the amount of payment for the penalties committed. The current BIR issue that we encountered is the printing of new receipts for every business because of some changes in its format. Clients have to return all of their old receipts to the BIR for disposal and use the newly printed receipts. Those who violate their rules have to pay the penalties.
Even though it is really hard to accomplish some duties and fulfill the time needed for the OJT because of some school activities I still enjoyed being a trainee. For me, the problems that I encountered are just a challenge and a lesson that I might use in my future career in the industry. I know that this is just the start of everything but Im willing to learn more. Read about the Pros and cons of on-the-job training
