Work Experience

Extracts from this document...


Work Experience As I lay there in my bed, thoughts fly through my head. Was that letter a joke? Had one of my friends sent it to me for a laugh or to mess me about? How can it be one of my "friends", I don't have any. Nevertheless, although I thought the letter was a prank, it was signed, sealed, stamped and sent. I will be arriving at Bukhari Solicitors & Co. Ltd on this Monday coming, at 09:00am. I felt scared, and suddenly felt the weather change after thinking of the people who worked at the solicitors, and if they would welcome me positively. I stood there, cold, wet and shivering. I looked up at the water stained, hand carved, oak front door, my stomach gave a back flip, and however, I walked towards the door, turned the shiny brass knob and walked in.

I also found the jobs that were given out to me, a lot easier to. The two weeks working there was not a waste of time, it was all very beneficial. The day came when it was time for me to part, and say goodbye. I got a warm goodbye from everybody. I shook hands with Mr Bukhari himself and received a thank you card and a box of chocolates. (Which I was very grateful for). After saying all my goodbyes, I left the Solicitors with a smile on my face and feeling very proud! I was just crossing the road, when I saw one of my school friends called Amir. I went over to talk to him for a while, anyway, he said that he had had a great time at his work experience, "Where did you work? "Bukhari Solicitors" he replied. My heart skipped a beat! How could I have been so stupid, there I was worrying about work experience, when Amir had worked at the same place? If only I knew he worked there, it all would have been so much more uncomplicated and tranquil. ...read more.
