Joseba - Work Experience as Machine Controls and Mantainance
I have become able to speak in a foreign language. I can now have a conversation in Italian.
I have learnt how to work in a company which is very different from the school environment.
I have also learnt how to look after all the things you have to do in a house (prepare dinner, washing cloths, …).
To be able to live alone in a foreign country is a very important achievement for me.
I have learnt how to interact at work as this was my first work experience. I have seen, for example, how to pay attention when your supervisor speaks to you.
A negative aspect it to leave your family and your friends.
Another bad thing is to go home right after the end of your work experience. I think it is a good idea to take one week off before going back to your own country, in order to enjoy and visit some nice cities across Italy.
My work placement has been very useful because I have learnt a new language and I am now know that I am able to live and work in a foreign country.
It has been very important also from the professional side as I have learnt how to do many things additional to what I have studied.
