Practicum/Internship/OJT Matters [Merged]
« on: January 21, 2007, 11:23:32 PM »
Just wanted to know who among you are about to take their practicum this summer, are taking their practicum right now, or had taken their practicum already? :)

I'm a junior taking up AB Communication and I'm about to take my practicum this summer! I'm scared but excited! :)

Care to give out tips? :P
It's amazing how just one look can make me so happy.

With you by my side, everything is just sugary-sweet.

You definitely are my sugar rush.

practicum?

masaya siya kung masaya sa compang na apply moh...

* just listen to the given instruction
* try to ask if hindi mo kaya
* basta be open minded ka lang
* be confident
* be nice to them
* magpakumbaba muna kasi under tayo sa kanila eh  ;)

I plan to apply to Summit Media, ABS-CBN, GMA 7, ABC 5, and all the broadsheets and newspapers here. :)

However, I have only applied to Mega Magazine Publications Inc. :)

How about you?

Wow, you must be really aggressive, actually all I'm looking out for is comfort - no commuting, hitching a ride with my dad, or being driven by the driver so anyplace North is out of the question. I have never wanted to work for newspapers or the network stations, so all I'm left with are either Video Editing companies or advertising firms.

While my friends worked for McCann-Erickson, Campaigns and Grey, San Miguel and the like, I had my practicum last summer at Chevron Philippines Inc. (formerly Caltex). My course is Organizational Communication so my skills fit many fields like corporate comm., marketing, HR, PR, advertising etc. I was assigned to the corporate affairs unit of the company. I contributed articles to their corporate magazine, the Caltex Star; media relations at Punta Fuego and administrative duties for the department as well as an AVP for one of their internal organizations. The best thing about my experience was I really applied what I've learned from school, minimal clerical duties and I got paid! I can say I earned a lot comparing it to my other batchmates.

Anyway, tips?

1. Apply to as many companies as you can. You shouldn't be complacent with just one, you have to have back-up companies. It's better to choose which company offer you want to accept than with none, right?
2. Impress them during the interview or the first time you meet your bosses. Impressions are crucial.
3. Research about the organization you're going to work for so you won't be shocked as to how things go in there culture.
4. Avoid tardiness to show respect for time.
5. Follow orders but don't hesitate to voice your concerns respectfully. If you don't want to photocopy or fax documents the whole summer, tell them. If you won't speak up for yourself, no one will.
6. Do your best in your job responsibilities. Remember that YOU CARRY YOUR SCHOOL'S NAME and what you do reflects on your school.
7. Be friendly and courteous. Good for networking.
8. Lastly, make sure that you keep all your OJT documents and finish your OJT requirements as soon as you can.

GOOD LUCK!

Actually, I really have to apply to tv stations and newspapers since my practicum has to be contingent upon my specific track of Communication, which is journalism, so no choice talaga. :) Although I would really like to work in Ortigas, more specifically in Summit Media! hehe! :)

Wait, we just had a practicum/job fair featuring Shell and Ayala last week. I'll see if I can find some info about them. :)

Didn't your school give you some contacts?  Included in my practicum manual was a contact list so I was able to get the numbers of the companies I plan to apply to. :)

you're welcome ;D

I emailed also a few companies but they haven't replied yet up to now. So I suggest you just call some of your companies.  ;D
