A firefighter

The dates of my work experience as a firefighter were from 13th April to 18 April 2015.
I’ve chosen to experience this job because this job is good and athletic. I’d like to become a firefighter so this work experience is related to my future career. This job is athletic and calm, it consists in saving lives and putting out the fire.
To become a firefighter you must get a high school degree and a competitive exam. It’s risky and active but it’s a super job.

A Foreman

I did my internship from April 13th to 18th 2015 with a foreman.
I’ve chosen to experience this job because I ask myself a lot of questions about this field. I wouldn’t like to become a foreman so this job isn’t related to my future career. The site manager job is to manage a site, make sure of its good processing. He must also take initiatives and must allocate tasks to others working on site.
To become a foreman you must get a high-school degree (“bac” in the French system). I love this job but it’s difficult when you’re physically-disabled and you don’t feel at ease with customer services. All in all it was awesome, complicated and motivating.

A firefighter

I’ve chosen to experience for a week (13/04/2015 -18/04/2015) this job because I would like it to be my job.
Being a firefighter is very hard physically. There is a lot of action and things to know as nodes, vehicles and first-aid techniques for road accidents. To do this you must get a high-school-degree level. I enjoyed the working hours and the contact with the population but dealing with danger was difficult. Facing the world of work must be motivated but being prepared for this world is very complicated.

Working in a Primary School

I did my work experience in a primary school in Tapage from 13th April 2015 to 17th April 2015.
I chose this internship because I like teaching somehow. Being a teacher can be very difficult but also pleasant sometimes. Some students can have trouble focusing so it takes some patience to know how to talk, explain, to express and be directive. I observed how a teacher worked for a week and I see that it’s not easy every day. I took a group of pupils to the playground and some students were helpful when necessary.
To become a school teacher, students must have an MA in teaching and pass a competitive exam (school teachers recruitment exam) organized by the Ministry of Education. I love this job because of school holidays, we are in contact with children and we share knowledge … But there are some constraints like dealing with some problems with students and parents, corrections. The world of work for me is complicated, fun, great and interesting at the same time.

A salesperson in a garden store

From April 13th to 18th 2015 I experienced the job of a salesperson in a garden store. I’ve chosen to experience this job because I like nature, I like working in the open. There was no connection with my project as I do not see myself working in this business. I answered customers’ inquiries and I dealt with dog seedlings.
You must have a high school degree.
The advantage is that the team is very nice and the only difficulty is that we must accept the supervisor’s orders.

A computing technician

The dates of my job experience were from the 13th to 18th of April. I did my job experience in a company of camera, alarm and computer installation.
I’ve chosen to experience this job because I like computers and data processing. I wanted to become a computer scientist so this job isn’t related to my future career. The job that I have observed consists in installing alarms and cameras but also being ready all the time because we can be called in emergency to repair a computer, or other problems. During my job experienced I was called to fix a sound alarm problem.
To become a computer scientist you must get high school degree, then specialize by training in camera and alarm installations. I love this job because there are some communication with customers and a good salary but it’s difficult to be alone and stand the working hours. It’s awesome, super, fantastic and interesting. I have another vision of the professional world, i.e. seriousness and respect for customers.

A computer technician

I’ve chosen this work experience because I would like to become a computer technician. In this job we have to repair many items like computers, to learn how to do that after studying computers. For this job you must get a Master degree but many years ago you just needed a BA.
I love this job because it’s well-paid and quiet but it’s difficult when you don’t know the machines problems and therefore what to do!
The work World is awesome and interesting because many people liked working with me and all is nice and their explanations helped me understand their jobs better but sometimes people act naughty when I don’t understand.

Trading experience

My work experience was held from April 13 to 18 in the field of trade. So I decided to do my internship in this area because I wanted to find out and see if I liked it. This has no connection with my professional project but allowed me to see if this area was made for me and allowed me to acquire new knowledge and to help me in my career plans.
This is an area that requires a lot of concentration, listening and patience because it is a pretty difficult job as it takes a lot to stand and be able to manage various tasks such as inventory, budget … During this week I served customers, cleaned and classified various objects. To do this profession you need at least a vocational high-school degree. Like in any business you can get hurt, especially by machines found in a library. Yet this remains an excellent and pleasant experience and allowed me to see that the world of work can be exciting but also very difficult.

I’ve chosen this work experience because I love gaming and electrotechnics. I’d like to become an IT specialist so this job is related to my future career. Most of the time, I repaired computers and installed security systems.
To become an IT specialist you must get a high school degree. I love this job because I love computing but it’s difficult to know about new technologies that exist all the time. It’s fantastic, fun, interesting and motivating.

A salesman

I’ve chosen to experience from 13th April to 18th April 2015 as a salesman this job because I had no time to choose a good one like computer technician.
I’d like to become an IT technician so this job isn’t related to my future career; but if one day I must sell computers, this will be very useful to help my clients and to talk with them. I observed a salesman job, it’s a nice job but I don’t really like it. I had lots of missions like helping clients to choose what they needed, storing and classifying shoes and counting the size of football shirts (size: S, M , L , XS). It’s hard to count them all when you need it to be done quickly. On the first day, I observed my tutor, how he helped our clients to choose what they needed and helped him to store shoes and shirts. On the second day, I sold shoes and shirts and helped my tutor. Other days, I cleaned the windows and footwear, sold shoes and shirts, helped clients to choose and classified shoes and shirts. It was fun and cool.
To become a salesman, you must get a B.A. I like this job because schedules are simple but it’s difficult to be a salesman / salesgirl when you are shy and don’t like talking a lot with people. It’s interesting and fun, you need motivation and sometimes, it’s complicated.
