The first day was a bit nerve-racking, but knowing what the ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Inc. does and how it impacts the Filipino people is what made me more excited than nervous.
The Project and Donor Management Head, Ma’am Josine Reyes discussed what PDM is and gave us a brief summary of the jobs of each department under PDM before making us choose which department we want to work for. I chose the Procurement Department even if I initially did not know anything about it, because it made me curious.
We were given the task to observe and study the work process of our chosen department, and to suggest better and more efficient procedures. To accomplish this, we had to interview some employees and visit two of ALKFI’s warehouses.
Days went by so fast and before we knew it, we were already in standing in front of the supervisors of the different departments, presenting our recommendations to improve their procedures.
Our task was not easy, but it was fun and worth working hard for. I hope that our small contribution to ALKFI will help them continue serving our country.
