    I'm just after applying to my local TD, I'm hoping I get it considering his dad's my GP! Don't know if I will though...hope so.

    Anyone know a solicitor's office dealing in Family Law in Dublin?

    I'm just after getting into Joan Burton's Dáil Office! Really happy about it. Heard nothing back from FF or FG, so if anyone's into politics, Labour'd be your best option.

    Already? :( There's another thing I've to sort out, going to be a nightmare finding anything that'll look ok on the old college application.

    Not technically work experience but we got a letter yesterday saying out of the blue that half the year have to start looking for somewhere to volunteer on Tuesdays "immediately". Eh, no. Imagine the conversation "Ok, what time can you come and volunteer?" "No idea". "How do you want to help?" "No idea" "Will you be coming every Tuesday or just for a few weeks?" "No idea". Starting to regret doing 4th year already...

    Has anyone ever worked in a library before? My local library offered me a place to work there because I submitted a letter there a month previously and they finally called me back to tell me I could work there for the week, but I can't because I got work in the local paper that week.

    Anyway, I was thinking of asking to work there for the second week, so I was wondering if anyone had done it before, and what their opinion was of it?:pac:

    I had to do that and was absolutely dreading it as i'm quite a shy person and just didn't want to do it! I looked everywhere and finally went to a creche in my area. It really isn't that bad. You'll learn a good few things, help out and really do make a few peoples day even if it's only two hoyrs a day. Don't worry it can't be that bad :rolleyes:

    What did you do to get work experience in Microsoft in Sandyford? Did you get it through someone you know or could you give me an e-mail address or something?


  • Registered Users Posts: 11 .:x.smile.x:.


    Try getting it in The Park Hotel or like wlr fm in the shopping centre or something.


  • Registered Users Posts: 49 ShotgunBoy


    Ok, I actually got in contact with the people. The guy you need to email is Liam Cronin ([email protected]). But you need to apply NOW. I tried getting it but..

    "Hi Eugene,

    Sorry our transition year programme only runs in February. March and April each year...

    Sorry,
    Liam."

    And..

    "Hi Eugene,

    Thanks for your interest in the Microsoft Transition year work experience programme...

    Eugene can you let me know the dates you would like to do your work experience in Microsoft Ireland and I can see can we accommodate you?

    Attached are more details about our work experience programme...

    I look forward to your response

    Regards,
    Liam."

    AND..

    "Hi Eugene,

    Sorry I have bad news we already have 6 students booked in for 30-March to 03-April so sorry we are unable to accommodate your request for work experience on this date...

    Sorry,
    Liam."

    I was pretty disappointed when I heard all this. But maybe it will give a better opportunity to get it. Good luck!

    Btw, those emails are in order 3, 1, 2.

    If you want the attachment you can PM me and I will email it to you. But, I'd say he'll send it to you anyway.


    Good luck and I hope this helped!!

    Thank you so much. That was really helpful. I sent an e-mail to [email protected] (which I got off the website) but for [email protected] it said sending failed. The only problem is is that my Work Experience week isn't during those months... maybe I could ask the school could I take a week off because it sounds good there.

    Anyway thanks a mil for your help

    Anyone know anywhere that takes people on in South Dublin or town? Like anywhere remotely interesting? I need it in the next month. Seriously, anywhere where you're actually doing stuff is grand. Thanks.

    I did one week of my work experience in 96FM 2 years ago. I'd say they still do it. You dont do much personally there but you get to see everything, thought it was interesting enough. Red FM do 2 week experiences. Probably wouldnt get a job there for the summer though.
    Did my other week in Zavvi. But of course its gone now :(

    I am f**ked to put it bluntly.

    To cut a long "poor me" story short, I didn't lift a book for the JC, missed over 30 days, generally didn't participate in class & got brutal results.
    I know I'm not stupid, I could of done well if I wanted to but I'm a slacker and I can't study.

    Anyways, I haven't really got a clue of what I want to do,
    I like computers, technology, etc. & I think I excell at them.

    I would like work experience but what am I to do?
    Where do I get work experience for "computers"

    Should I try some courses or classes?


    Should I even bother writing a "C.V" mine is a joke.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 30 PrideInBattle


    Computer shops, repair shops, technology shops..?

    I'm lost. :(

    my brother was in the same sort of situation last year for college and he's got his degree now in computer games development. I could ask him for ya and link him to this thread. he'll tell ya where to go but see if there's any factories around such as HP, Dell, Microsoft etc. depending on what area of the country you're in it'll obviously be different. hard enough to get into i believe but possible.
    If you try this and get no where email the IT department of your local college. I know where i am anyways they'll bring you in, send you to a few lectures, probably show you some stuff and send you home. actually its probably the best experience you can get cos they'll tell u straight up what it takes and what you can do after college.


  • Registered Users Posts: 568 ✭✭✭CianDon


    I'm doing Red Fm myself in March and they seem willing to take on people. I think HMV are fairley good as well as are most big shops that would really appreciate the free help


  • Registered Users Posts: 6 PinkBubble


    RTE didnt accept my school for work experience...:(... im really interested in doing television production and broadcasting so does anyone know if they'd take me for a week in the summer???...


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 81 ✭✭elaine93


    Has anyone ever done work experience in Beaumont Hospital? I'm working at the A&E desk (office work) and I'm just wondering what to expect. Are heels totally OTT? (Pain isn't really an issue, I'll bring flats). Do you think they'll let me do some shadowing or something more medically than office work if I'm really good?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,062 ✭✭✭DancingQueen:)


    I worked in an office in Beaumont, wanted to see what it would be like to be a social worker but couldn't actually work with them due to confidentiality issues. I didn't wear heels because i was running around like a mad woman the whole time but if you usually wear them go for it and bring flats just incase.

    Not sure if they'll let you shadow, but theres no harm in asking :)
