My Work Experience

Before My Work Experience

During the summer holiday, I kept thinking about what sort of work I was going to get as it was not fully confirmed before I left for the summer holidays.  I received a letter from the school explaining where I was going to be working and my Job Description and Hours, etc. The company I was going to be working for was ‘Jacobs Babtie’ which is one of the leading technical and management consultancies operating in transport and development, environment, property and structures, and partnerships and outsourcing markets both in the UK and internationally.  The job description was very unattractive as it described that I was going to be putting ‘PC input’ which was okay but then carried explaining printing maps, photocopying, etc which I rather boring. Right from the start I wanted a place related with computers, so where did they place me a place related with computer. In some ways I was looking forward to be working with computers but in some ways I dint want to go as it dint like doing photocopying or printing all day.

During My Work Experience

So here it came, the day I was going to work for the first time. I woke up at 7:30 as my start was at 9:30 and finished at 3:30 which I liked. While I was getting ready and eating my breakfast I kept trying to picture on what I was going to do and how my first day would go. Firstly I went in and was introduced by Jatinder Thandi who was going to look after me for the next two weeks. With Jatinder I went around the building and introduced me to other people. The building was split into two, one an office and the other a lab which took me by surprise. Basically until lunch which was at 2 o’clock I walked around getting to no the place. After Lunch Jatinder introduced the programs they used which was linked with maps which I just looked into and messed with. That was It my first day finished. The only thing that came to my mind was at last. I was really looking forward to the next day but like I school I knew I had to be there. I was introduced by the health & safety inspector who showed me around where the fire exits where and other information I needed to know. The place was very chilled out as you could start work went you wanted and have break and lunch anytime, it wasn’t strict at all which was good.

        The second day I didn’t really start work straight, I just sat on the computer playing about with it which they dint really mind as no one really did any work. After a while I was given a sheet full of pot holes where I had to find from using a program called ‘GWings’ which is full of maps. Basically on the sheet would be where the potholes where and I would have to plot them on ‘GWings”. All through that day I carried on plotting which passed my time and had finished the day.
