It’s Friday afternoon, and that means saying goodbye to this week’s work experience students- Ellie, Charlotte and Muskaan.
Here’s a bit of insight from the lovely Charlotte from Winifred Holtby, about what the girls got up to this week….
My work experience at Force-7, (besides getting the week off school and going to McDonalds for dinner), has been really useful, and I will take a lot of things away from this experience. I have enjoyed my time here as the people were really nice and welcoming - but it all got a bit crazy when the fish needed cleaning and no one shot their hand up to volunteer… It got plonked on Dane and even though he did break the little fish house he did an alright job. Apart from that, I have learnt a lot of skills and techniques and I am sure they will come in handy for me in the future.
Whilst we have been here, we have spent our time learning about market research , finding how many views and likes our favourite adverts had, including how much time overall had been spent watching the videos. Who would have thought the amount of time spent watching ‘Three’s dancing pony’ on YouTube was 16 years! Yeah I know mad right.
We have also spent our time collecting photos of drunk people, not in a weird way, I mean on the internet using them to promote the ‘push over’ (also known as the recovery position), to young people so they know what to do in that situation. This week has been fun-filled with lots of different activities to be completed, keeping us working throughout the day. We worked in the Street Team room, which had a pretty cool Lego wall, and the amazing ‘inspiration room’ which was by far the best room I have ever seen in my life. It has a grass carpet and walls you could write on - I definitely would want my bedroom to be like that, even though my parents would think I was completely mad.
Our time at force-7 has been great, and I am so pleased and grateful that I got placed here for my work experience, definitely a week to remember.
