Work experience at a solicitor's office based in Southall.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Work Experience As part of my year 10 GCSE course, I decided to take part in a two-week work experience at firm of my choice, which was to be at a solicitor's office based in Southall. This essay will contain detail about my experience as a member in this law firm. In the week following up to my work experience, the school was still looking for a suitable placement for me. Up until the last moment I still had no idea of where I would be placed which left me quite anxious and intrigued to know. Eventually I was given a placement at a doctor's surgery, this surprise was only the beginning of what was to come later on. How I moved from a doctor's surgery to a solicitor's office, was something, which was not expecting. Once I had my work experience settled, I had phoned the solicitors up to ask for an interview had gone quite smoothly. The manager in charge had asked me some personal details and to why I had chosen the solicitors. The time had come for my first day. ...read more.

I had then introduced myself to each one of them, they had also greeted me very kindly. My main colleague was Jennifer but I called her Jen for short. Jen had showed me everything around the office. Jen also had instructed me to basic office jobs such as filing, faxing, photocopying, transferring calls, making appointments and answering calls. I wanted something more challenging but these easy jobs did pass time. Everyone was friendly in their own way however no one really had time to stop and talk, as they were very busy with court cases and clients. Sometimes I would feel very bored because there was no music! Or any form of entertainment this was definitely a working environment. The only person who kept me entertained was Jen. At the end of the day I felt very relieved and tired the day was hectic and full of surprises, but I was till excited for the next day. I shall never forget the time when a new student joined in the second week her name was Farhanna. It was a pleasure working with her because she was fun and exciting. ...read more.

Conclusion

They though I was very enthusiastic and loved having me their. I also wished luck to Farhanna who was there for another week I don't she can cope without me. Throughout this experience I gained much more confidence. I now can express myself if I have any ideas. Also how to deal with domestic situations. This also made me more punctual and energetic. I have also a basic understanding of work life and how hard it is to reach a goal and getting there successfully. My weakness is that I get over enthusiastic when I should be calm. Also I get angry very quickly if situations or things do not go my way or in the way I expect them to. If I had a chance to re-do my work experience I would work on behaving as expected in different times and situations. For the future I do not think I would stick to solicitors and office work. I would like to have a active job and which I do not have to concentrate as much. When I leave school I would love to be a police officer because it is very active and you can be the one in charge.
