On-the-job training is a form of training taking place in a normal working situation. It helps students to gain knowledge by performing in the real working environment. It is essential to get students to understand how to perform their job correctly. College and universities require their students to experience such training in a certain total number of hours as a part of syllabus. For the students, an on-the-job training gives opportunities to go through and explore the particular job by the means of equipment and credentials. The real working environment turns out to be a development site for the trainee to be trained more about their selected field and run through what they have studied from the college. On the other hand, an OJT program also profits establishments who acknowledge trainees.
Interns can support and assist normal employees to help minimize their labour activities. The trainees are also a good way to help employees of the company to extend their patience when it comes to training the interns on how to handle their work. The management also trains them how to share what they know and be open to questions. Therefore the internship also becomes a way in training for possible supervisors or executives of the company. Particularly, programs in Multi Media Arts teach theory, present practice opportunities and offer constructive evaluations of multimedia principles of design. Students can develop their talent through OJT. Through this training they can begin to focus on a specialization, such as animation, interactive design or video design.

SUMMARY OF PRACTICUM EXPERIENCES
Becoming an intern at ABS-CBN is the best experience that I could ever experience. ABS-CBN is my dream company, not just because of its beautiful celebrities but how good the company accomplishes and produces to make a program, a show or an event behind the camera.
There are many departments and subsidiaries ABS-CBN have. One is the Creative Department where she was assign. In Creative Department they are the ones who make TV Ads, TVC, OBB and lower thirds. They have there the producers who produce and make the concept, the graphics artist who visualizes the concept and the art director who approves the commercial that was made.
She was assigned as a graphic artist. As a graphic artist you should be knowledgeable when it comes to producing materials with graphic designs, techniques in typography and layout, graphic design history and animating your graphics.
Doing a graphics design was a tough thing to do. It’s not just about doing designs but also knowing how to use applications like After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator. Graphic artist also produce their own graphics and should know how to animate the desired graphics. It’s a lot of pressure because you should meet the deadline that will be given by the producer. After you have finish your animation the producer is the one who will approve or may revise your work. Patience is a must because it doesn’t mean that if you had finished your animations means you are already done. Lots and lots of revisions may encounter in your work but for sure will make your work even more striking.
Also the trainee may take charge to those graphic artists who are not present. She is the one who will continue all the unfinished work of the graphic artist. She was assigned to do TVCs and commercials from the well-known channels like Lifestyle, Hero, Jeepney TV, Cinema One and Balls. Some of the trainees works were posted in Jeepneys facebook page “Meteor Garden Kalokalike”, Jeepney TV channel “Dugong” and TVC like Working Mom and Metro Home that were posted on different screens of ABS-CBN.
Projects like Rio Screen in Cinema, OBB Booth for Cinema One, Cinema One Logo Trasition, Metro Home TVC, Working Mom TVC and Commercials, Julia Montes TVC, Metro Covers Photo, Dugong TVC and Meteor Garden Kalokalike for Jeepney TV, OBB for A Mile a Minute are well done accomplished through the entire on-the-job training experience.
Being an intern in ABS CBN was a wonderful experience. She enjoyed doing her job without any complain. On-the-job training experience helped her a lot in her skills and is now ready to face the real world of media industry.
RECCOMENDATION AND CONCLUSION
During the training, the trainee is more exposed to office work than in field and production work. He recommends to add more available computers for the interns to master more the applications they are using and to add extra help to the artists. The trainee highly recommends ABS-CBN Creative Department for those incoming interns who wants to know more about multimedia design. The trainee is now ready to face the real world of media with her knowledge learned in the chosen company. ABS-CBN is a big help to those artists who wants to reach their goals and dreams.
