My Work Experience

Extracts from this document...


My Work Experience Before My Work Experience During the summer holiday, I kept thinking about what sort of work I was going to get as it was not fully confirmed before I left for the summer holidays. I received a letter from the school explaining where I was going to be working and my Job Description and Hours, etc. The company I was going to be working for was 'Jacobs Babtie' which is one of the leading technical and management consultancies operating in transport and development, environment, property and structures, and partnerships and outsourcing markets both in the UK and internationally.
