1 Enhanced Knowledge, Skills and Attitude of Students as Influenced by the Efficacy of THM OJT Program Introduction to the Study This chapter is divided into five parts: (1) Background and Theoretical Framework of the Study, (2) Statement of the Problem and the Hypothesis, (3) Significance of the Study, (4) Definition of Terms, and (5) Delimitation of the Study. Part One, Background and Theoretical Framework of the Study, gives the reasons for choosing the problem and the theoretical framework upon which the study was anchored. Part Two, Statement of the Problem and the Hypothesis, states the main and specific objectives of the research. Part Three, Significance of the Study, cites the benefits that may be derived from the results of the investigation. Part Four, Definition of Terms, defines conceptually and operationally the important terms used in the research. Part Five, Delimitation of the Study, specifies the scope and coverage of the investigation. Background and Theoretical Framework of the Study There is the recognition that on-the-job training is an important example of an "investment" in human capital. Like any investment, there are initial costs. For on-the-job training, these costs include the time devoted by the worker and co- workers to learning skills that increase productivity plus the costs of any

2 equipment and material required to teach these skills. Like any investment, the returns to these expenditures occur in future periods. For on-the-job training, these future returns are measured by the increased productivity of the worker during subsequent periods of employment. (Barron, John M., Mark C. Berger, and Dan A. Black. 1997. "Introduction." In On-the-Job Training. Kalamazoo, MI: W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research). Entering the employment market is now becoming a big challenge for graduates of higher education institutions. A transition from university to work environment can be very stressful for new graduates who are not well prepared. They may have lofty goals for their careers but these usually do not live up to their expectations. This mismatch between their expectations and the real world should be bridged during their studies through some forms of industry engagement like on-the-job trainings. On- the-job training is essential to every young and future professional for it broadens their understanding towards their future field of endeavor. It gives students opportunity to apply their knowledge and at the same time to learn more of what their industry is in real speaking. Knowledge of the student is being enhance through school lessons moreover as they are being send through their OJT program knowledge school based is being apply into the real environment where as students are be able to experience of what is really happening in the real picture of the industry. Students has already the knowledge and overview of what their industry is but what is really important there is the proper application of the information they have including the principles being taught inside a four wall of a classroom.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
