Introduction

Work Experience By Dines Selvarajah For my Work Experience I chose to go K&D associates as my mum referred me there. I thought that going to an accountancy place for two weeks would be a good step for me as I have aspirations to go into the financial world. I got my placement sorted out pretty early largely thanks to my mum, but I still had to go through the usual procedures by writing a letter and sending my CV off to obtain permission to work there. After that there was not much to do apart from getting my exams over with and waiting for the 30th June to come. The day before I started my time in the working world, I had my suit ready and ironed (Thanks Mum!) and charged my phone and iPod ready for the journey tomorrow. I climbed into my bed and got a good couple of hours of shut-eye as I had to be ready for an early start tomorrow. Tiredly, I clambered down from my bed and trotted to the bathroom with me still being half asleep and walking around with my eyes firmly shut. I went to the bathroom, sat on the toilet and I did my usual business like every other day. ...read more.

I was assigned with the task of putting up the new display for the bank as they entered the 3rd Quarter of the year. Sitting and working with the councillors was a great experience as there is a huge variety of things that they do any you've got to be on your feet all the time. I would have definitely said that this day was definitely better than the first day with the cashiers as I was a lot more active. This made me feel more welcome to the company as, I wasn't really given any other compulsory jobs. On the 3rd day which was a Wednesday I was with the Mortgage manager and he was on an inter-branch trip to other local branches. It's his job to sort out all of the mortgages for the surrounding area so it's a pretty demanding job. We went to the Edgware Rd. Branch and collaborated with the Branch Manager there about all of the different mortgages that had come through. Then we went over to the Hannover Square branch where we had scheduled 2 meetings with clients that wanted to take out mortgages. The day was really tiring due to all of the travelling! ...read more.

Conclusion

My mentor then gave me a pep talk, telling me that life gets easier after GCSE's as; you grow up more and start realizing to put more effort in. He also told me, not to stress all the time and have fun sometimes but not, a lot. My mentor was like a friend to me, he even told me he used to be as enthusiastic as me. And that I reminded him of when he was my age. I felt privileged to be sitting next to a person who admires my work. After spending 4 days their working and getting to know the councillors it was time to say goodbye and leave the bank. I was given �20 in HMV vouchers and was told that I was credit to myself and my family so that really did top off the whole fortnight. Looking back on it now, Work Experience was a truly worthwhile Experience and I feel that the skills I have learnt over these 2 weeks will be invaluable in later life. I had met lots of great people and have kept in touch with most of them which is pretty easy thanks to my mum! I think from this experience I will take a lot of the skills I learned to get on with my life and use these skills to fulfil my ambitions and my full potential. ...read more.
