Syed – My Work Experience
Looking back at my two weeks with Impact, I felt incredibly
lucky to have had my work experience placement with them.
Arriving, I didn't know what to expect. What I didn't expect was
such a fun office! On my first day, I was introduced to the team
with handshakes and smiles. I learnt about the different divisions
that the teams were working in, and I understood that I would be
working in each one which I was looking forward to. Throughout my
two weeks, I have learnt about all the different aspects of a
recruitment agency. I've made an effort to recruit people for
different job vacancies according to their CVs, I've wrote a job ad
and a blog, which I am proud of as I don't like writing. I
have shadowed interviews and learnt how to enjoy myself at work.
All these activities have given me an eye opening insight of what
work life is like. I feel that I have now acquired a lot of skills,
such as communication and team work, all of which were not as
strong before as they are now.
Not only have I learnt about what work life is like, I had also
learnt a lot about myself and my capabilities. I've realised what I
enjoy doing and what I don't enjoy doing as well as how good I am
at it. Impact had ensured that I had something to do at all times
which was actually assuring as I liked the tasks I was assigned to.
Did I mention there's a pool table!?
Overall, I've had a wonderful experience, and am very appreciative
of the opportunity that I've had. A big thanks to the team for
taking the time to teach me many different things.
