Work Experience Essay
When we were first told about work experience I thought to my self ‘great no school for two weeks.’ I was looking forward to looking around places and trying to figure out what and where I wanted to do my work experience. I’ve always been good at doing things with beauty and nails and therefore I was hoping to find somewhere I could experience more about that. I started looking around in November and found many places where I would like to spend my two weeks of work experience.
Most of the places I looked at involved sweeping floors and cleaning floors and sweeping floors and cleaning and more cleaning, this was not how I wanted to spend two weeks of ‘no school’ so I decided to look at other places like boots and cloth stores. I asked around at many different department stores and many of them said yes and told me to bring in more information and I told them that I would be back in the next two weeks with the forms that needed filling in. Two weeks went by and I forgot to go back and then I just got lazy and couldn’t be bothered to go. I kept telling my self that I had plenty of time left and that I would find a placement closer to the time.
It was now June and it was becoming clear to me that I had to find a placement in the next few days as Mrs. O’Connor was having a go at me and other students about not having a placement and even my tutor Mr. Hillman started having a go at me.
With only 3 weeks to go until work experience I still hadn’t found and succored a placement and it got so serious that Mrs. O’Connor was calling me out of lessons to find out what was happening and at one time she even threatened me about being a senior prefect her exact worked were ‘your suppose to be a senior prefect and you still haven’t a work experience placement’ and then a while later she said ‘well you are one for now’ meaning that I may not be one later on.
On the very same day I went home and started ringing up places were I could do work experience and it got to a point when I didn’t mind cleaning floors. As soon as my mum got home I got her to drive me around to the places I rang up but when I got there they were closed or said that were not interested in giving out a placement.
