My first work placement
Hello my name is Nathan Hilton and this is my story about my work placement at AES Europe. I have been looking for work since school and it has been very hard for me to find anything because of the lack of work around. But there was a light at the end of the tunnel when I found out about Experience Corby. I first found out about Experience Corby when a letter came through my door asking me to attend a work placement day at Tresham College. What I had to do at Tresham was go round the businesses that agreed to attend and offer one person of their choice a work placement. That’s how I first met Ann and Tony from AES Europe. They told me about the work placement that they were offering and I found it interesting. So I told them that I would be interested and they took my details and told me that I would get a phone call if I was successful. I waited at home for a phone call and just an hour after the work placement day I get a call from Ann and Tony saying that I had been accepted and offered a place at AES Europe.
My first day I was nervous but in the end I really enjoyed it and my nerves calmed down. My role in my placement is admin which is to keep the Twitter and Facebook account updated for anyone looking at the site to keep up to date about what is going on in AES Europe. I am really enjoying my time here and the staff and everyone are great to me they really look after me and make me feel as welcome as possible.
