Work Experience

Benefits of work experience:

  • find out about jobs or industries  – help you decide future career/study choices that interest you or elimate careers which no longer interest you
  • improve your understanding of the workplace environment and what employers expect of you.
  • develop your skills (eg communication, teamwork and punctuality).
  • gain referees who you can ask to provide references for future job or study applications.
  • gain a network of contacts for future study and career advice.

How to find Word experience:

  • start by identifying a career/job which you are interested in and you want to find out more about
  • use your network – ask family, friends, neighbours, etc
  • research local companies/employers – consider travel/transport
  • see Mrs Patrick or Mrs McNeillis
