Work Experience Essay Feelings of fear, anguish, excitement, and shock all rushed through my body like a steam train as I received my work experience reply slip in afternoon registration the previous Monday. I looked through it casting me eyes on every single detail like a hawk hunting its prey, making sure that I didn't miss anything, that would be of great importance to me at a later date. I didn't know what to feel I knew that it would be a big important step that would come with a lot of responsibility, that to be honest was quite welcomed. I went home that night and thought how exactly I would go about preparing for my step into the "real world".

The experience for me had been brilliant, with mostly highs throughout the whole week. There are two things that amazed me about my experience. Firstly was the coffee machine, now this was the most technical, good looking machine I have ever seen, it had an incredible selection and the bet things was any drink was only 5p ( wow ). So about 3-4 times a day I would make a trip to the coffee machine for a No.51 (a cappuccino with extra milk) brilliant just brilliant. Secondly I was amazed by the hard working, laid back atmosphere that the company produced and how each and every one of them made my stay very enjoyable. ...read more.
