My co-trainee during his spare time.



After the finals week, I was already desperate and hopeless for my On-the-Job-Training. I have never sent an application except for HOLCIM and PILMICO. There’s an extremely thin chance of being accepted since we (almost half of the class) are all applying for HOLCIM and PILMICO. Apparently, if you’re referred by an employee it increases your chances of getting accepted. Well, luck does not favor me at all. That’s how I ended up doing my internship at Trinidad. I went there with lenny and I got in.


I started my OJT last March 28. I could still remember the excitement and fear I felt on my first day. My first task was to prepare the financial statements and ITR’s. . My worries were then blown up by the wind as if my heart felt empty with thorn and pains of miseries. It was disastrous that I almost want to trade my OJT for a mindless work such as filing and running errands.  I found myself barefooted. Call it paranoia. One thing in mind, I have to back out. But I am not a quitter. A powerful thought came to me , there was this small voice that came whispering to me “ If sahrima and ken can do it, why can’t you?” I was stunned for a minute. Very simple yet very true. That was all what I was waiting for ;motivation from within. After all, this is what OJT is for, to gain a “real word” experience and a better grasp for what’s next after graduation. I could not recall what raced through my mind thereafter but one thing for sure, I can do anything , If I wanted to and If I believed so. I end up the day very proud of having accomplished the tasks at hand. Working 10 hours a day, seven days a week, I was almost close to drowning in a pool of numbers. 

Hours and days passed swiftly, I have become adept at preparing FS, ITR’s of individuals and corps, and manning Kyocera :D.All these days, I was happy I was with the company of this not-so- relaxed set of company : lenny, sahrima, ken, Jason and finally kristy coming late. My days with this six GREAT individuals comprise of their constant squabbling, jokes, the most weird conversations, gossips on love teams underway ( jan♥len) and the talk about everything under the sun after lunch. I realized that nothing can compare to the experience you gain from being thrown into the fire and apply the things you learn in class to the real thing.
