My experience as a trainee

I started my in – service training on the 1st of February 2013 at a Guest House in Beacon Bay- East London. I felt excited that I had found an organisation that would help me gain experience in the field of tourism and at the same time prepare me for the working environment, I also felt very nervous as I was not clear of what my duties entailed, what was expected of me as a trainee and I was also not sure about the company rules and regulations.
On the first day of work, I was told that I will be working in the office as a manager’s personal assistant and I was showed how everything works. I had to learn everything very quickly as the lady that was training me was available for that day only; my mistake was not having a note book to write down notes as she was showing me around, nothing seemed complicated at that moment and I thought I could easily do the job until I made my first mistake, I typed a quotation and faxed it to a client without stamping and/or signing it and my manager noticed, she is a perfectionist she pays attention to every detail and she was upset about it. The industry is people oriented and to attract people to the guest house we should always do the job to the best of our abilities and ensure that they have a worthwhile stay with us so that they also feel that they are cared for, they are respected and their needs are catered for, and so I understood her emotions.
My responsibilities include
• Typing of quotations,
• Typing of invoices,
• Emailing and/or faxing documents to clients,
• Making accommodation and conferencing reservations,
• Answering and making office calls,
• Answering and making managers calls,
• Welcoming and showing guests around the guest house and
• Filling of office documents.
I have been working at the guest house for almost a month and I have learnt so much in that period, I have…...

...English 101 Lincoln’s Challenge Everyone has certain moments in their lives that have a lasting impression. Some people get a new job, meet fascinating new people, or get married. The experience that made an impression, even changed my life was going to Lincoln’s Challenge Academy. This academy was one of many big changes in my life. The benefits of this academy will help me through the difficult trials of life that I will face in the years to come. Lincoln’s Challenge was a place for “troubled” teens to obtain a GED and get discipline. It was a military-based school in Rantoul, Illinois. Young adults from the ages of sixteen to eighteen would come there, voluntarily, to change their mischievous behavior. Last year I dropped out of MacArthur High School and enrolled in the academy. I was a junior when I left the high school, and I was truly scared out of my wits. What I had heard about Lincoln’s Challenge Academy, or LCA, were not too pleasant. I knew my past wasn’t the best, but from what I had heard from a few friends the other teens that were going to attend were going to be much worse. When I arrived at LCA in January, I was absolutely terrified. I didn’t want to leave the comfort of my home, parents, friends, or especially my bed! What made matters worse was that I would have to gone for six months without my phone! However, the promise of two three-day breaks in March and April and family visits every Sunday made the knot in my stomach shrink a little bit. When......

...Running head: OR EXPERIENCE Observational Experience in the Operating Room and Post Anesthesia Care Unit Bothayna Bader LaGuardia Community College Professor Rosenberg SCR 210 March 19th, 2013 Preoperative Phase The preoperative phase is the time period between the decision to have surgery and the beginning of the surgical procedure. For some patients, the preoperative period may last for months, during which testing and other procedures may be done. For an emergency, such as an appendectomy, the preoperative period may last only a few hours. During the preoperative phase, preadmission testing is done to assess health history, family medical history, and any known allergies to medications. During which time explanation of the surgical procedure and patient education is taking place. Patient education advises the patient on pre-surgical preparation such as bowel preparation, nutritional and fluid intake the day before the procedure and when to stop eating, and how to proceed with medication therapy the day before surgery. Diagnostic testing includes ECG monitoring, blood testing and vital signs. The trauma of surgery can greatly be relieved by psychological preparation of the patient before surgery, so during preadmission testing psychological evaluation is also taking place to assess the patient for any fears or anxiety related to the surgical procedure. The nurse should discuss techniques to aid physical recovery and ways to lessen the pain and anxiety......

The Experience

...The Experience Your arrival to the residence starts with you examining a house that is physically well-kept. A beige house with tan shutters, and landscaping throughout the yard that is reminiscent of a magazine cover. The sound of a bird’s chirping, and bumblebees buzzing in the summertime, makes you feel warm. You walk up to our home feeling a sense of welcoming. When you finally walk into our house, the experience begins. The captivating smell transports you into another dimension. My mother loves to cook, and the aroma of spices and vegetables simmering in a pot leaves a strong impression throughout the home. The sound of a cook hard at work distracts you with clanging, chopping, and shaking of her tools. The warmth of the air with these sweet aromatic smells makes you feel invited and happy to be there. Upon entering you will also meet our dogs. They are very pleased to greet you, but all guests must first be approved by man’s best friend. Their submissiveness is very playful, and it is always customary to give a scratch or pat on their head. Both dogs wag their tails in excitement and with their tongue hanging out of their mouth they pant from the affection. The house is bright and airy with photographs of memories hanging about the walls. Strategically placed, every picture has a purpose in its occupied space. Mirrors enlarge the room, thereby giving the illusion the room is quite spacious. The softness of the chairs makes you feel right at home when you......

...IIMA FDP Alumni Conference - Ethics & CSR 20-21 December 2013 It was a tremendous experience as well as a proud feeling to be a part of IIM-A FDP Alumni Conference, like “A sea meeting to a river” The fog was being cleared by many highly learned and extremely experience personalities during these two days with their innovative approach which I felt glad to be present with them. Especially the words spoken by Padmashree K. Ramkrishna Rao sir were very touching. The way he tried to explain the complex topics, briefly with a common way that was really phenomenal. I learned about human values and their basic responsibility towards society with the help of gandian studies or believe we can say. I think that human values plays a significant role in ethics. The informative words shared by prof. G.Subramanyam sir on how the ethics and social responsibility simultaneously determine the organization image as well as affects the industry .which was really a learning experience especially what things are happen around us we must be aware of that like how “SATYAM” has almost destroyed its image because of unethical practices done by them which even badly affected the software industry.  Challenges in managing non-profit and social enterprises: Chair: primal sir and The panel was shared by ravi sir and rani man.

My Experience

...and I’m just on my day. And within those days I already learned a lot of things, more than what I expected. I came to realize the importance of on-the-job training (OJT) to a students’ life. I learned a lot from my experience as an On-the Job Trainee. First of all, I’m very much gratified for the support and understanding of my superiors especially on times when I committed mistakes. More than any learning thought in school, I learned to be with others, to work with people. I learn also to listen to my seniors, even though at times I can’t understand they instructions, I also learn to accept criticism and be apologetic for my mistakes. And also they particularly impart in me what I must know in making use of corporate resources and corporate values. But not all OJTs are as lucky as I am. Not all have a wonderful experience, and that’s the bitter truth. Sometimes some are hired just to do some sort of stuff, worst of all, is when they’re tasked to do things which are not totally related to their course. It became worst in the sense that they will never have the chance to grow, to explore and discover themselves, and to gain experiences which will serve as their guidance in stepping into the real world. The opportunity to have the best experience that every trainee wished to have became unreachable for them. The training ground that was expected to prepare them for the future became a burden for their development. We can always make our OJT meaningful and fruitful......

...integrity, such as: • Undermining public confidence in results of scientific research • Inhibiting open communication among scientists Researchers must balance the broad overarching themes of research guidelines and principles with the specific application of rules and policies that could be challenged in research environments. However, this balancing act will not always be easy. At times, specific rules do not fit the complex ethical problems that arise in scientific research. Some general guidelines and principles for conducting ethical research are listed below: (1) Protection of Human Subjects (2) Conflicts of Interest (3) Data Management (4) Authorship & Publication Practices (5) Peer Review & Privilege (6) Collaboration (7) Mentor-Trainee Relationships (8) Protection of Animal Subjects (9) Research Misconduct Block 1 10 Protection of Human Subjects One of the most fundamental considerations of conducting research with humans is the protection of their health, well-being, and autonomy. The protection of human subjects includes concepts such as informed consent, weighing risks and benefits, and giving participants requisite information. The National Cancer Institute describes some of the policies that have been implemented by the government and various professional societies in an effort to protect human subjects.1 Nuremberg Code (1947): The Nuremberg Code was created because of the Nuremberg trials, regarding the unethical experimentation undertaken by Nazi......

Ojt Experience of the public of information concerning economic and financial matters. Instead of gathering various information from different departments/locations within the BSP, researchers can just visit the EFLC for their information requirements. i have observed their daily activities that they must comply. at the first week of my ojt, i was so nervous because they are professional people. i have to act professional to have a good impression o them. but at time goes by, i find myself working with them harmoniously. the staff are very approachable and nice. they are not really the serious type all the time. sometimes, you can joke and chitchat with them. they always bring food and share it with their co-employess and even to me. as a trainee, i have my tasks to do given by my supervisor. on the 1st day of my ojt, she told me that im going to have a prjoect and it will be passed at the end of my ojt. she told me to do a manual about the FAQs at the bsp abt different topics. she told me instructions on how to do it. as i do my project, there are still tasks that i needed to do. they let me encode different files using excel and search of the publications of different government agencies and their address, website and contact number. sometimes, they also let me join and help them whenever there are visitors that are attending their tour and seminar. at bsp, i never thought that there would be programs like mutya ng bsp, yoga and zumba sessions. at my stay here in the bsp, i......

...Valuing Life 10/3/2012 By: Lisa Graham-Jones Instructor: Professor Wright Or Life is precious and shaped by many different experiences along the way. What if you were unable to experience this thing we call life? If the hands could turn back time and your mother decided not to let you live, but instead destroy your life before being able to experience the world we know of today? Many bypass this thought process when considering abortion. Women instead think of themselves and their situation when debating the option of abortion. Life is valuable period. Regardless of whether there are good outcomes of abortion, or negative outcomes of abortion, I am against abortion. Regardless of what is going on in life, women know that the only way to not get pregnant is through the choice of abstinence, but they still choose to have sex. With this being a problem it makes abortion look really evil due to careless and selfish choices that women are making today. Abortion has been overthrown and battled in many courts with different cases and the procedure of abortion has granted because the right of the constitution protects the choices that women make with the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendment. The constitution protects the rights of women in many different ways including the choice of what women want to do with their bodies. These three amendments make abortion legal and create a bigger problem of diminishing this evil operation for the fact that abortion has been approved by......

...Experience Paper A visit to the Cloisters Museum The Creative Voice Experience. Practical contact. Observation of facts. We live in a “soft” world where the greater percentage of the arts are viewed through some type of electronic device with a screen and usually muddled with banners of advertisements or endorsements. We view static images on screens where texture and brush strokes could never be appreciated. We watch videos of classic Shakespearian plays devoid of the elements and senses of a live performance. True experience cannot be had remotely. Experience MUST be experienced! I decided to visit the Cloisters Museum and Gardens to reach outside my comfort zone and visit a place that I not only have never been to, but had also never heard of. The Cloisters is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art that focuses on the art and architecture of medieval Europe. The museum is located in northern Manhattan and overlooks the Hudson River. That particular day was fairly warm with light rain. Upon entry into the museum my initial reaction was how cold and damp it was in comparison to the day. Because I had not been there before, I was initially most impressed with the structure more than the art itself. It is clear that people have gone to great lengths to recreate a structure that incorporates all of the elements of medieval times. I am by no means a historian and as a result I am usually stricken by something that appeals to me visually over its historical......

Experience this alone. It can plan and give guidelines, and the least an individual can do is cooperate with the government and be responsible.” Baguio is mostly made up of a young population – dynamic and flexible – so the hope for a better city is kept alive. Residents (locals and migrants alike) should be more conscientious given the city’s state. Since this is the situation now, people might as well work on what is on hand rather than just sit and bewail the city’s gradual decay. Progress and increase in population is okay as long as the people also take into consideration the welfare of the place they live in, for it is also them who will reap whatever their actions’ outcomes are Conclusion: Strengthen the Baguio city and Burnham Park experience with the future development plan for Burnham Park and continue to take strategic tourism growth for other tourist destination of Baguio city....

...THINGS I LEARNED FROM THE OJT EXPERIENCE.. During my On the Job Training I learned a lot. I learned how to communicate and understand well what is customer service specially in food and beverage department. I have many chances of applying all I've learn in my alma matter, Bulacan State University. I became more responsible about regulations and follow every standard they have. I reminded my self that I'm not here to be lazy, but I'm here to prove my self I have an edge in this industry. I have realized that being punctual is more important than being industrious. For showing that you have that eagerness in the job your in, is being like you owned it. I have been a food attendant in both Hotels I've been into, The CAVA Bar and Restaurant and The Escolta. Waking up early is just so hard to do, changing schedules from am shift to pm shift too. I learned to boost my confidence and pay attention to attend guest needs. For they are the reason why a hotel is operating. your experiences with the people you worked with. In the beginning, working with people you have just first met is something different and something that is hard inside. Hard inside that you can't say anything or do anything that you are usually saying cause the near fact the you might offend them or they may think your rude. On my experience I have became an observant and a listener to the people I worked with. As days goes on, friendship and understanding with each other is built. I have worked......
