Introduction

CITIZENSHIP- Coursework A For my work experience I had apply to a company for a two week placement, and this had to be done through proper procedures, so I had to make sure my curriculum vitae was up to date and well presented. I first began to think what type of work experience would I most enjoy and benefit from. I thought I would like to work in a computer related placement since I am doing IT as a GCSE and I have a keen interest in it. I went along to the carers office and talked to the carers teacher but he didn't quite have what I wanted so I went home and done some research on the internet and found a contact number and e-mail, I phoned the number and asked about any work experience opportunities and they said the best thing was to e-mail my queries to a certain e-mail address.

I also made formal communication with control towers for broadcasting in Paris, USA, Berlin and other countries main broadcasting centres. At the end of this I got given a pack with all information and contact details if I was interested in coming back to BT and apply for a permanent job in the near future. It said all the benefits of joining BT and why I should come back. I went to lots of places in BT doing lots of different things and would like in the future to perhaps stay in one department for longer an have a deeper understanding of all the work. In that department, For example I spent only two days on the engineering side of BT but that wasn't sufficient to learn the real commands and learn exactly what I am doing and why. The work experience has been a good real experience to how a job really is. BY SUMIT KAPUR 11Y ...read more.
