Cherish Aileen A. Brillon

Discipline: Mass Communication, Communications



In accordance with its long-term plan to make its students competitive in the media industry, the Department of Communication of Far Eastern University (FEU) found the need to evaluate its on-the-job training (OJT) program to determine if its Mass Communication students are equipped with competencies such as knowledge, skills, and proper attitude in the workplace from the perspective of their OJT supervisors. Extracting data from the practicum evaluation report and applying the measure of central tendency, complemented by interviews with OJT supervisors, the study found out that FEU Mass Communication students rated excellent on all three competencies, but they need improvement in terms of technical knowledge, assertiveness and self- confidence. It is recommended, as one of the first steps, that the measurement tool being used by the Department be reviewed and revised to make it more responsive to the demands of the industry and curriculum.
