the procedures and activity schedules of mortgage brokers can offer the practical view of the processes followed in the domain of research. Respondent views can vary depending on their personal opinions and mindsets. This situation enhances the learning experience of the intern through a novel approach of researching the process itself rather than relying on opinions related to the situation. Interns learn the practical work schedule of mortgage brokers which would not be possible through the analysis of theoretical sources (Mei-fang, 2014). Practical applications of the theoretical context can be observed directly in the documentation process. Theoretical knowledge in the academic sources can offer only a quantitative impression of the problem. However, study of practical applications of the theories helps in determining the professional nuances of mortgage brokers.
The last and crucial situation which contributes to the learning experience of an intern through the course of industry project is the compliance with ethical considerations. The necessity of practicing ethics in every process is the major outcome of this situation. Interns who are new to the corporate world must know the practices which can harm their reputation and in some cases end their career (Li-hong, 2013). The participants in the information collection phase primarily included mortgage brokers from the concerned company as well as from other companies for the purpose of sampling. Specific conditions for protection of participant’s information are followed by interns which informs them of the significance of protecting data.
The interns are supposed to frame interview questions which do not require provision of stating any personal information. Interns learnt about the malice of data manipulation and plagiarism which act as suitable guidelines for the rest of the corporate life of the interns (Lynch, 2015). The industry project served as a viable tool for interns to learn about the significance of ethics in a corporate domain and especially in the case of mortgage brokers. Ethics are followed in every discipline and profession in order to maintain the integrity of the discipline. Research procedures are intended to obtain precise information on the professional perspective of a mortgage broker and its implications in customer service. Hence interns must understand the significance of maintaining ethics in the research process in order to ensure authenticity of the observations.
