My opinion about work experience…
This blog post is written by a work experience student sharing his opinion and tips about work placements.
HI, my name is Kieran and I’m a year 12 student based in the marketing department on work experience. Here, I’m going to suggest to you why I believe that work experience is vital for anyone, whether it be in year 10, year 12 or at uni itself, as getting used to a working environment in an area in which you are interested in is vital for you future.
Work experience is essential for anyone in life, as it gives them a stepping stone into work, whether it be a paid placement when at university, or just an unpaid internship over a summer holiday at the end of your A levels. Any experience in a field that you are looking at going into is priceless, especially when looking for a job is concerned. Potential employers like to see that an applicant for a job at their business has had relevant experience, even if it is not a very long time, any experience is better than none at all.
Peoples’ opinion of student eating is takeaways, nights out and cold pizza from the night before – but it doesn’t have to be that way! You can make your own food from scratch that is healthy and much cheaper than the £20 you’d spend on a big takeaway!
When you’re at uni your food changes, you start eating a lot of pasta… and more pasta. However exotic the sweet and sourchicken ready meal sounds, it is still a ready meal.
As everybody who is a University student knows around May its deadline time, and I have just submitted all my assignments for the semester – yippee!
Whilst at university, it can feel like there is no time to do anything other than studying, and definitely no time to have a job and earn any money! But there could be a scheme that could interest you where you can earn money when it’s convenient for you. You could sign up to be a Student Ambassador.
