I. Introduction: On the job training or OJT is one method by which students is given a chance to apply the theories and computations that they have learned from the school. It also helps the students to acquire relevant knowledge and skills by performing in actual work setting. Colleges and Universities require their students to undergo such training within a specific number of hours as part of the curriculum . For the students, an OJT or internship program provides opportunities to go through the actual methodologies of a specific job using the real tools, equipments and documents.
In effect, the workplace becomes a development venue for a student trainee to learn more about his chosen field and practice what he has learn from academy. On the other hand, an effective OJT program also benefits the companies who accept trainees. First OJT or intern provides additional manpower for a lesser labor cost than a regular employee. Most of them are all eager to learn the ropes so chances are high that they will cooperate. Employers can use this internship strategy as a method in recruiting new employees.
Since the trainer or the supervisor can follow the trainees’ progress, he can gauge based on performance, behaviour and attitude if the trainee will make a good recruit after the completion of his internship.

Importance: The importance of having On the Job training is to have a better knowledge of the food industry to know how it really goes in real life.
To expose them in situations that they might encounter in the future when having a real job, it also helps them to lessen their shyness. Trainees can also improve their skills in this program learn more skills and knowledge so they can use it in their future, trainees just needs to be more open minded to their mentors in the establishment so that they can learn to be great. It also helps them to see what they lack in the field, is it being a slow learner? Or being too shy to ask questions, to know what they need to improve more to their self if the time comes that they will have a real job.
Limitations/scope of the study: Students must know where they should place their selves when having their Ojt. One is that students must act that they know more things to their supervisor. One example is when the supervisor teaches you something; you must listen to them clearly and do what you are told to do. If ever you know another way of doing it and the result is the same, ask them so they are aware that it’s still in the right standard they require. Scope: Reasons: Respondents:
