Introduction

Michele Dominique English Coursework 11A1 27.03.04 Non Fiction Writing My Work Experience For my work experience, I went to work at a hairdresser's, located on South Norwood Hill around where I live which turned out to be quite convenient for me! It was called Jon-Paul's and was run by a woman called Amanda Burns. The manager of the salon was to be my boss for 2 whole weeks. Sally White was her name, she was a very nice but firm person who seemed to put her career before anything else in her life. I got this impression from the first day I met her; the way she approached me was done in a quite distant manner, she spoke in a tone which very much meant business and from that first day, I knew there would be no fooling around as long as I was to be under her supervision. ...read more.

As the week progressed I didn't really feel like giving up this comfortable way of working after just 2 weeks. One exciting aspect of my job was that I was able to conduct perms under supervision. I found this task quite challenging as they told me I was the first work experience girl whom they'd let try perming hair. ...read more.

Conclusion

I realised that not spending time with them has led me to become more mature and independent on my own, however I also felt deprived of what I really liked the best in my life and that was them! Therefore, I feel that when I leave this school after further education, I hope that it won't change anything and that we remain as we are now (which is somewhere between decent and immature) than to become the grown-up young women we all transformed into after work experience! I really believe that this work placement has made a big impact on my views of the "world of working", and in time I think I'll be ready for it but, meanwhile I'll just settle for concentrating on schoolwork as well as having fun with my friends!
