November 16, 2012 Friday This is the day 1 of my On-The-Job Training. I just don’t have any idea at all; I don’t know what I’m going to be or which department I should assign so thank god we start at orientation. We talked about the company, policies and some other important details then our HM supervisor take me to my department, which is Dispatch Service Department, I don’t have any idea if what is going on in this department until my supervisor orient me about my task and this I meet and started to meet the Call Reports which is assigned to me for the rest of my training. My day have been so well and just exceeded my working hours.

November 19-23, 2012 (Monday-Friday) This week I’m sorting Call Reports specifically the CM or the Corrective Maintenance, from the month of October sorting from 1st of October from the end of the month. I arranged it from banks to banks for it to be organized. I just had light duties by this time, I observed the call reports and notice that diebold has a lot of client, offering good services, offering products such as ATM, software and many more. Diebold Philippines Incorporation is a very huge company it has many branches in different part of the world. This ECE Company which is vision is to fulfill and exceed the customer expectations. The facilities and policies is just suit for the employee and to the firm. This office environment is just good for the working people. By the end of this week, I’m still adjusting myself for a new environment; this week was exhausted and very tiring for me. It’s like I already feel being a working person that all you want is to take a rest and sleep all day but I can say that I enjoyed being here, it’s like new life that I need to face all by myself.

November 26-29, 2012 (Monday-Thusday) Last week of november and my second week on my training. Still doing my stuff sorting of corrective maintenance finishing call reports the month of October to November. By this time I learned how to fax, and go to the different departments here in the office. My Supervisor assigned task for me this week is signing the quotation of banks to the logistics and accounting but first is to photocopy it and give it to logistics the other copy is for our receiving copy then proceed to accounting department for signing then fax it to assigned banks so that its, that’s how it goes . Just a few observations in our working place, people here is so loud and they’re not close that much and I think the reason is they’re not in the same ages but they’re cool somehow. So I have 2 mates from bulacan state university, my co-ojt, eating lunch with them but we’re not close, I mean yes they’re like my buddy but we talked seldom so I don’t find them call but they’re good it is just our personality didn’t yet match. My adjustment to my new environment is kind of fast, except for waking up early because that’s the thing I hate the most especially if I’m locked of sleep. I don’t have choice but to wake up early because I have my responsibilities as a student. It’s really a big help for me especially in time management but there’s a harder part from waking up early, I missed school, I missed seeing my friends, I missed someone with me sometimes it makes me sad. And just realized that adjusting yourself to new environment is easy but yourself to what you get used to is so hard.

December 3- 7, 2012 (Monday-Friday) Christmas is just around the corner. This week is better than my last week because I think I’d fully adjusted in my environment. People knew me, they’re saying Hi, Good Morning, getting updates, keeping in touch and I just feel a warmed welcome. I just noticed that people here love to eat, like every hour? So if there’s any food it will be share to everyone. While during our lunch break me and my co- ojt really don’t know where to eat because around us are all fast food chain which we already eaten like for nth times, so we decided that maybe sometimes we pack our lunch and have our lunch at the pantry with the workers in the office. This is task is to file CM reports in the arlos, arranged it bank by bank, month and its ascending date, used puncher for it to be filed completed. My whole day spends for filing and some paper signing, photocopy and fax. People in the department became my boss, they’re asking me to do this, look for it, writing reports and etc. In this week I’ve finished 25 arlos, Imagine? Actually can’t believe I’ve finish that all but thank god I did and everybody like wow because I finish lots of SR to be filed. I’m happy indeed it feels like a good job well done

December 10- 14, 2012 (Monday-Friday) Everybody seemed very busy to prepare for the Christmas party. Every department must have a Christmas presentation whether dance, sing or video presentation. Everyone is happily talked about what they’re going to wear or how about their hair; you’ll see in them the excitement because on the Saturday that will be they’re party that will be held at Vikings MOA. Our department presentation is the gangnam style video presentation; it is like a Music Video. So my participation here is to ramp and a bit of dance, they keep on saying “oh Trizh pag narinig mo na yung hey sexy lady tsaka ka na lalabas ah tapos freestyle na” and it’s really making me laugh like HA HA HA so thank god we finished the presentation that all of us are laughing and doing our crazy thing but sad I didn’t come to the party because we have family gathering so sad not able to watch and laugh with them while watching our presentation. Well this week was my exhausted week because aside from preparing our presentation I have lots of things to do for signing, naming of folders, filing agreements to each banks, photocopy of confidential papers, fax and submit the November call reports to the logistics. Filing lots of Preventive Maintenance, encoding data and doing user manuals. I look so wasted and don’t have time for myself but still GOD is always good, I did my entire task on time hooray for me

December 17-21 2012 (Monday- Friday) I can’t explain what I’m feeling right now like OMG! I’m just so excited to end this week because finally I will get my Christmas break, promise my heart is full of joy and I am so inspired to finish my work as much fast as I can. Everyone here is excited for their long vacation like me, this week is so happy for all of us. Wednesday, I’m wondering why everyone is talking about a party that will happen here like seriously? So yes, there will be a party on the December 21 Friday, a children party for the children’s of the entire employee here. I was so amazed for knowing this and they’re doing it for years ago, ow so thoughtful of diebold, parent and child bonding. Same old task assigned to me, this week is so ‘petix’ to me because I finished my work last week so now I’m just relax. TGIF yes Thank God Its Friday and T.G.I Fridays our caterer for this party. The party started 4pm kids are here, such a cutie. They’re having parlor games, giving gifts and lots of balloon so everybody is so happy. It’s like were all having a long break and that break are for fun. All the big bosses are in even live band are present and of course the foods that everyone’s waiting for haha. We had a wine, foods and bonding. This is indeed good; everybody is happy and ready for Christmas. This day I go home happy with my keso de bola from office and of course my Christmas break my boss allow me to not attend the rest of the days in this year. Hooray! Merry Christmas. Goodbye to my year 2012 at Diebold, it was fun

January 2-4 2013 (Wednesday- Friday) This is it! Happy New Year. Positivity this year. Its relax day for me, task assigned was for signing and fax only. Thank god because I’m just came here from bicol. Tadaaa! Its 3. The most important day of my life. My Birthday First time to celebrate, I mean no celebration because I need to do my responsibilities. I feel so loved, first of all my tita gave me money, my dispatch team family really touched my heart, they’re always inspires me, they’re make me feel the I’m so beautiful, it makes my heart big and make me more inspire When I came in, they’re all giving good feedback about how I look but they’re don’t know that this precious day is my birthday until I approach my lovely supervisor and ask what their want for dessert, that’s she only knew that this day is my birthday and Mam Jovi one of the employee here immediately grab me because she want to fix my hair, she said that she wants me to be more beautiful, so she curl my hair and I feel so gorgeous. Had our lunch with my co-ojt treated them for lunch and get some ice creams for the office so we had it, so happy they’re all greeted me. But before this important day ends, my friends from adamson had a little surprise dinner at the greenbelt I feel so really loved with a teary eyes and when were in the restaurant all of the crews sang me a song with a cutie cake with candle, I really amazed with this. And one thing just saw some celebrities there. I got Home with a happy heart and a big smile.

January 7-11 2013 (Wednesday- Friday) Second week of the year, counting for my remaining days here at Diebold. Had my new hair look. New year for a new me. Better and More responsible me, I get used for being alone because of this training but for me this really helped me. Nothing new with the cycle in this environment except to my new working station and to my new task and that is sorting PM, preventive maintenance, filing it based on their Report number and equipment number its very crucial and it will make you hilo. This week Sir Mike the Manager borrowed me to do something about the liquidity, reinvestment and some confidential papers. While doing the files mam will ask me this for signing, then photo copy then fax. Nothing new its just the ask is coming one by one and sometimes one big strike.

January 14-18, 2013 (Monday- Friday) Its just the same with my last week, sorting PM by series number and arrange it by their report number and equipment serial. Signing and Fax just like the old times but more relax this week because my supervisor is not allowed for 2 days.

January 21-25, 2013 (Monday – Friday) This week was haggard and exhausted to me; because I need to go to school after my office work and I just had a half day. The first day of this week is ‘ngarag day’ for me, had a photocopy of papers like 400 copies I guess? Then my usual task, signing and fax then write in on the board, Manic Monday, just had my half day at the office because I need to go to school for meeting for our new proposal and need to meet my group mates in thesis for the division of the task for documentation because we only have few days to prepare for our preliminary defense. While my office works are still there, I started to sort the CMs for the month of November not only that even PMs. This SRs giving me headache because there are so many like massive so I can’t even think where do I put all of this its like a trash on my table. Should I say a trash with the table? Its really disgusting because I had one absent for this week and when I came back boom my entire table is consist of SRs or call reports that waiting for me to short and file them. But meanwhile one of my supervisors inviting me for a party because I’m the only one who is close to her but no I need to concentrate to my obligations, we really need to pass in the preliminary defense. I was like dead tired like I wanna sleep all day long BUT there is always a big BUT. Well this is the reality world atleast I got idea of how life is going when after of years studying. This environment is just the same to the moment I start staying here, I still shy to be with them. But there are people here that having some trouble or just misunderstanding they keep on talking about this miss at her back. I don’t know and I think I don’t care, I don’t mind their business because the important is I’m doing my job/task so well. TGIF. Classes tomorrow, some thesis and Sunday is our defense. Busy week indeed so help us god

__________________ Marites C. Paringit Supervisor January 28 – February 1, 2013 (Monday-Friday) The day after our preliminary defense, I feel so down and just want to rest and sleep all day long. I’m late and my stuffs are waiting for me. Nothing unusual happens to my environment. PS department ask me look for the SR, BDO for shortages, first thing comes to my mind is why is this important or something because they keep it, file it and separate to others, and I just knew that this shortages are important because it is the problem of some of the ATMs the money from it is short. So I started to look for it and check the dates, cash in and cash outs. The second day until to the last day of this week is for Preventive maintenance(PM) sorting all of the PM for the 4th (Fourth) quarter so its like I’m going sort PM for 3(three) months from LBP, BDO, BPI, BOC, DBP and a lot more. The 3rd (third) day of this week my supervisor and I finish the quotation for pending services for some banks some of these quotations are December to January so I need to look for the CM and attached it cause we need it to submit to the accounting department. And of course there were still for signing, photocopy, fax and write the pending service to the board. The next day was for PM and I guess for the rest of my remaining days here cause arlos are there I need the PM and CM to be filed there its for the month of December and November and we had a big merienda cause our sales department just closed a 7M deal with DBP yea cheers .

...The key characteristics and differences of research methodologies The methodologies used in research include qualitative, quantitative, mixed, and action research. First, mixed methodology entails the combination of the compilation and analysis of both qualitative and qualitative statistics. Second, action research is an informal methodology that obliges all the partakers to be mutual researchers. Qualitative and quantitative research methodologies are the prevailing methods in research at present (Austin, 1978). Qualitative research methodology obtains an approach to evaluating information that looks at connotation rather than numbers. The statistics, therefore, normally consist of non-numerical data such as words or metaphors. Qualitative research is unbolt and receptive to its subject. There are various key characteristics of this research method. First, the perspective of investigation is not artificial; they are natural. Nonentity is undermined or taken for granted. Second, actions can be understood effectively only if they are spotted in context. Consequently, a qualitative researcher submerges in the setting. Under this method, interviews and observations are the most suitable strategies to be used. Quantitative research methods advance research in a different way and scrutinize the data based on figures and statistics, the consequential data is principally statistical (Trochim & Donnelly, 2006). It entails those methodologies, which include surveys, interviews, and...

...Market Research Proposal ‐ PepsiCo  Is PepsiCo Healthy?  Team 5:  Ilaria Caputo    Aneesha Duga    Marga Galmes    Daria Ilgen       Jean‐Loup Senski    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The proposed research aims to measure the PepsiCo brand’s consumer perception as “healthy” within the North American market and to analyze the results in order to gather data to generate recommendations on the strategic marketing of the company. The research will survey a sample of 1,000 people in the US different by age, income, location and personal preferences for drinks. The population will be selected randomly by a computer by using the grocery store loyalty programs members as reference. The extent of the research is wide enough to ensure that the survey will give us a framework of the feelings towards the healthy feature of the PepsiCo brands. A questionnaire will be administered to the selected sample over the Internet and the results will be collected and analyzed by a computer. The criteria under which each question of the questionnaire has been conceived cover the main concerns for the company. For example, does the consumer perceive PepsiCo as provider of healthy drinks or not?. The research also highlights the main possible outcomes of the survey. For each type of result, the research has already identified a strategic direction the company should take. The research is extensive enough to provide a comprehensive understanding of the brand perception. The accuracy of the research is......

This would prompt me to use a marketing research plan, consumer research, advertising research and strategic research. “Market research complies information about a product.” (Hall, Prentice 2009) Consumer research is used to see what consumers are in the market for. Advertising research focuses on getting your product out there, example would be social media. Strategic research is the final plan and becomes the base of your research it allows the company to compile information from the social media and what influences consumers to purchase a product. (Hall, Prentice 2009) During the exploratory research process I would start with the literature research process, because it is the cheapest. I would use the census bureau, newspaper, and magazines to collect whether there is a need for a bookstore and what sort of books people would want to read. I would then decide if I need Qualitative or Quantitative research. Quantitative research will give numerical data. Qualitative Research gives a more details, such as consumer behavior. It observes what consumers are interested in and explores the nature of the consumer’s insight on a product. I would choose Qualitative research because it would give me more of an overview on what consumers are......

...Proposal on Research Research is a complicated process in order to find the right resources on a specific topic with the proper literature writing. Researching is to provide necessary information to individuals on a specific topic. Thus, this research can be used to write a paper or papers on a particular topic for intended audiences with the sources you used on your points and assertions. One job the writer needs to make sure he has done is to include a position he is on and that he has compressed or summarized all the research on various sources by focusing on the main key points. The writer also has the responsibility to provide a motivating, stimulating, or activating thesis statement. The writer’s purpose of writing a research paper is to provide specific details on all the sources that have been collected for the writing topic. He also needs to compress all the collected resources into highlighted key ideas from the passages. Also, he needs present a research paper that is consisting of three formats: a summary, a paraphrase, or a quotation. In a summary, you provide important key main points from the source’s idea and write to support the source’s idea. Paraphrase is when a person takes someone’s idea and put it into the writer’s own words. Lastly, quoting is to directly quote from an original source. Even though the writer provides information from various sources that is included to the written paper, the writer must put the researched information into their own...

...qualitative research. A qualitative research design could be primarily used to solve customer satisfaction problems. It is a more straight forward, structured way to seek information from your customers. Through surveys and questionnaires that can be conducted in a number of ways information can be gathered from large groups of participants. Usually they involve closed ended questions, that can effectively organized. The organization of this data is then discussed in the form of numbers and statistics. Using this information the business owner is made aware of a customer’s interest, knowledge, and changes on a product or service. Based on this they can make more informed decisions on the quality of service to their customers. Although a quantative research design can be used primarily it would benefit to use a qualitive research design as well. Part of satisfying your customer is knowing your brand not only objectively but also subjectively. Through quantative research you can monitor your success based on clear cut facts. It does not go into depth as to why your brand is doing well and a qualitive research design can give you insight to customer’s opinions. A qualitive research design is more open to personal feedback. It explores a customer’s thoughts and having access to these thoughts can help in discovering new elements into keeping customers satisfied. A qualitive research is done in form of interviews, focus groups, participant observations and research of other......

...RESEARCH Research is a process involving a series of steps to collect and analyse the information needed for decision-making in the desired / specific field of inquiry. The term research can be applied to any field of human activity. Research means ‘studious enquiry’ or a systematic, honest and impartial study conducted by trained men using scientific methods. It means detailed study relating to a particular subject. The purpose of research is to find a solution to a particular type of problem or showing the problem a direction towards solution or putting some light in the unknown areas of knowledge for your enlightenment, to that particular area of knowledge-thus research actually help us to understand our reality more clearly, as well as help us to enjoy better living standard. So, research is kind of a project to find out some answers or solutions for a particular area-research. Every project has its scope of work, time-line and resources, that is why you may easily inter -relate research work with a project. There are two different types of research: basic and applied research. These two research types are used in a variety of studies and field disciplines including psychology, biology and chemistry. Basic research is about understanding the various processes between memory, learning, and knowledge. It is about finding information, while it may become applied later, researchers choose to research topic of interest to them. It is about figuring out the answer......

...goal of the research process is to produce new knowledge or deepen understanding of a topic or issue. This process takes three main forms (although, as previously discussed, the boundaries between them may be obscure): * Exploratory research, which helps identify and define a problem or question. * Constructive research, which tests theories and proposes solutions to a problem or question. * Empirical research, which tests the feasibility of a solution using empirical evidence. There are two ways to conduct research: Primary research Using primary sources, i.e., original documents and data. Secondary research Using secondary sources, i.e., a synthesis of, interpretation of, or discussions about primary sources. There are two major research designs: qualitative research and quantitative research. Researchers choose one of these two tracks according to the nature of the research problem they want to observe and the research questions they aim to answer: Qualitative research Understanding of human behavior and the reasons that govern such behavior. Asking a broad question and collecting word-type data that is analyzed searching for themes. This type of research looks to describe a population without attempting to quantifiably measure variables or look to potential relationships between variables. It is viewed as more restrictive in testing hypotheses because it can be expensive and time consuming, and typically limited to a single set of research subjects.......
