Work Experience Student (Former Employee) – Melbourne VIC – 29 April 2016
I was only employed for 2 weeks as part of my high school work experience. I started off as the receptionist, but over the 2 week period I participated in most areas of the workplace. These included accounting, marketing, and sales.
I learned how to work in a group and alone, and gained valuable communication skills.
The hardest part of the job was staying inside an office for so many hours without daylight or fresh air.
The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people, and having new experiences.
I enjoyed the challenge of achieving some good outcomes in a business that had little distribution expertise. The task was initially difficult as expectations from the management were high but resources were not available. Whilst I was disappointed at being retrenched I was very proud of what my years of effort had achieved. A fact that was echoed by the management
