English Speech. Work Experience

Extracts from this document...


English Speech Good morning boys and girls, you are lucky enough to be witnessing my presentation, free of charge (although tips will be accepted at the end of the performance). I am going to talk about my work experience, all the action - the good, the bad, and the downright ugly, but enough about the finance man, let's move on. On my work experience, I went to Fairgame Publishing Ltd. - a company which publishes magazines, based on women's football, it is the biggest selling women's football magazine in England, even though I would bet that none of you in this room have heard about it. I only sells a few thousand every issue (once every two months) but, they were overjoyed when they found that in approximately three years time, they would finally break into profit. Now, I can see by your faces that you are all waiting in eager anticipation as to find out how I got this placement. Well, due to my connections, I know the editor of this magazine, she plays for the same football team with me, so the organisation was pretty efficient - I politely asked her - by shouting across the football pitch one training session - if I could do work experience with her - and she politely responded - by shouting back. ...read more.


I was then introduced to the team of workers they had, and to my own desk, which had a computer. I was then later shown the health and safety procedure, which contained a top of the range medical kit - two plasters (one square, once rectangle) and a notebook. As always, no expense spared. Once I had been shown the ropes I was given my first task - check the online forum that they had to see if anyone had been saying unacceptable things. This was fine with me, until I found I had to read about 300 comments on about 35 different subjects, this took me about 2hours to check through and I found nothing unacceptable on it. It was now the highlight of the day - dinnertime meant one thing and one thing only - The Sandwich Man! He travelled around in a van full of, you guessed it, sandwiches! When he came and sounded his noise (which is indescribable) it was a mad rush as to who could get there first. After that excitement, it was back to the usual day. In the afternoon I was given what was quite possibly, the most fun task that I have ever needed to undertake ...read more.


One of my interviews went onto the website, I was also interviewed myself, this was also put onto the website. Also, on a higher note, I managed to make just two cups of tea during the entire week, this was either because they were extremely kind people or that my tea making ability was incredibly poor, I think realistically, the latter is more probable. By the end of the week I was sad to leave, what started as the most boring thing I have ever endured ended as a very valuable experience. I was also disappointed to leave as I would miss the friendly and funny atmosphere that surrounded the office, everyone was very kind and talkative with me, and they made me feel welcome from day one. I will also value my nickname 'Helen the Christmas work experience elf' forever. Although I enjoyed my week, I have decided that I do not want to pursue a career in journalism, as I would prefer a more practical approach to work. At the end of the week I felt completely fine, as my day was spent sitting down, doing work, but also talking to my friends on msn messenger. From this experience I have also mastered the game blast billiards and have since completed all versions of it. Thank you for your time. ...read more.
