Andrew's Voluntary Work Experience at Norwich For Jobs


I have been taking part in a voluntary work experience placement for Norwich for Jobs for four weeks, and I feel that this has benefited me in many ways.


For example, the placement has given me vital experience in an admin role, such as completing and updating spreadsheets, contacting employers via email and telephone, and keeping stats figures up to date.


I also feel that the placement has helped develop my confidence in an office setting as at the start of the placement I had no confidence in talking to people via the telephone. I have however found out that I can now deal with doing this with no problem. I also feel that my general confidence in finding work has improved as I now have something recent on my CV to show to employers.


I would recommend doing Work Experience to anyone who is struggling to find work, has confidence issues or has been out of work for either a short or long period of time.
