My work experience essay- By Dhruv Rishi Joshi. For my work experience placement, i chose to go to a designer clothes shop which is local from my house. I choose to go here as i am intrested in going into sales as a career when im older and looking for a job, so working in a sales atmosphere in a designer clothes shop would be ideal for me getting experience in sales. My work experience was to last 2 weeks and i had to work full time from 10am till 5:30pm every week day. I was actually quite lucky to get this time to arrive and leave my work experience placement as i had friends who had to work longer hours and travel futher to get to there place of work. I also wanted to work at this particular place for my work experience becuase the shop itself is one of the high streets leading suppliers in designer clothes, so I would be able to attain a good reference from a reputable company which would help me out in the future. ...read more.


I had a few other duties which included answering the telephone in a polite manner, Helping out with stock taking, Helping customers, assembling rails on which clothes could be hanged from and get the owners lunch from the cafe every lunch time. This all went smoothly with no hickups for the whole two weeks and went better then i thought.I leanrt many new experiences from my work experience and really enjoyed working there and made many new friends who i keep contact with. As they had two stores, a childrens stores for young children and an adults store for the bigger adult sizes, I had a chance to work in both shops. I found that the adult shop was slightly busier then the childrens shop proberly because not as many people spend great amounts of money on designer clothes for their children and more on themselfs but i was still surised at the amount of adults who brought designer clothes for their children. I started to get the feeling children are getting more and more spolit as i was never brought designer clothes as a small child by my parents and still today I only get a pair of designer clothes once in a while. ...read more.


I also bettered myself with my communication skills as i had to talk alot more then at school, which is normally just listening to the teacher and getting on with work. I had to talk to customers and be polite to them aswell as being as helpful and kind to them as much as possible. From work experience i have leant other valuable things which i was not to sure about before, like whether to leave school to get a job after year 11, but from work experience i now feel i would be more better of going into future education as the pay is only �5.10 per hour, which i feel is not enough for the amount of work which has to be done and for the hours being worked. I wouldnt mind working there as a weekend job if i had the time but i have more important things like playing football, meeting girls and doing coursework and revision. The place is a very happy and friendly environment and has given me a possitive attitude to working and now has aimed me in the right direction to what i want to do and how to go about acieveing it. ...read more.
