    Do much in the newspaper?

    Yup. In the end did a good bit of graphic design, ads and stuff. I enjoyed that alot....its made me consider a career as a graphic designer :D

    Oh, and I fell in love with using Apple MacPro's also :o

    Yeah, the radio station could only take me for 4 days and the school organise work experience in a charity shop for any days you can't get anywhere else.

    I can only do 4 days in the Library as its only open 4 days, only found out late though[Thursday],had though I would be able to do it on saturday as well,.Ty Ordinator said no point in trying to get place for just 1 day ,so day off on monday then :D

    Anyone considering doing placement in photographers? Thinking about this for my second placement next year.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,461 ✭✭✭highlydebased

Basically stacking books in alphabetical order in the Library stock building all day[all week most likely] .Bit dissapointed I'm there till 5 each day[most others doing work experience finished around 2/3] but suppose can't complain- was off yesterday!

    Yeh, I'm tryin to get week with a landscape photographer. Didn't think I'd get anywhere but i think i might have got someone:D So far nothing else i wanted has worked out. Although, I think I might have a week with a video editor as well, not as sure about this one though.

    im doing one week in microsoft and the other in some pharmaceutical company ! :D:D


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,461 ✭✭✭highlydebased


    Do let us know how the week in Microsoft goes......... (Like the username btw!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,404 ✭✭✭qwertplaywert


    Trying to get into Microsoft for second one,you wouldn't have any contacts you could share with me would you Scobbydooo?


    Library was meh. Boring, but no real work involved- just alot of bending to put books in place all day. At least I got a taste of the job though- worth the week just for that.

    In likely event I don't get into mircosoft for second week, I'm hoping to get a placement at a film production comapny, or a photographers.

    I posted the letters last Friday... And I wrote to every good paper in Dublin and Wicklow

    Irish Times :) I got a week there at the end of last year along with 2 girls from Alexandra College and one lad from St. Andrews, so you could get a placement there. If you do decide to go for it, make sure to contact Janet Stafford.

    It's a great experience as well, btw :)

    I went to Clonmel hospital last week, I'm in an office this week.
    Office sucks, but I loved the hospital!
    I'm surprised they took me on, like it is a hospital!
    Definitely decided now I'm gonna do nursing, which is great!

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,882 ✭✭✭JuliusCaesar


    Anyone got any good ideas?

    Anyone got any experience about past WEs?

    Anyone know who pays? :D

    We've gpt 4 weeks to do 3 placements, dunno the dates yet, but looking for ideas. Want good ones!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 9,878 ✭✭✭Rozabeez


    What kind of work would you be interested in doing?

    Ask yourself this, then act on it!

    Don't focus on which job will pay you, sure it'd be nice to get a reward at the end, but that's not what the work experience is about.

    Most people in TY have never worked a day in their life (studies etc excluded, obviously) and work experience is about experience not pay.

    Make a list of the things you're interested in and the jobs you'd like to try out then try and find some places to match with the list, you can post it on here if you want some help!

    Good luck.
