“Hi, my name is Kayla and I'm currently just studying my first term of year 12 at the Orange TAFE campus. In my year 11 Business Services Cert 3 TVET class, we were required to do one week of work placement in an office environment, so I chose the Orange City Council and Orange City Library to do mine.
For the first two days, the 25th and 26th of October, I was at the Orange City Council and I met all the lovely, friendly staff in the Treasury department who were very welcoming. I was introduced to most of them and I spent around and hour maybe longer in different sections. It was all very interesting, I did filing and on my second day I typed up invoices which was easier than I thought and I was surprised that I got it all right and didn't make a mistake.
From the 27th to the 29th of October, my last three days of my week of work placement, I was at the Orange City Library upstairs in the administration. I really enjoyed it there as everyone were so nice and it was a caring environment to be in. I got the chance to also write a book review on one of my favourite books which I was told was great and I was proud of that.
I appreciate everyone taking time out from their busy schedules to allow me to experience working in a business environment. With working at the library I felt like that was a place I could work in to earn money before I head off to University or Film School because I enjoy books and I love the library. So thank you for everyone who gave me such a good experience here.”
Thank you too Kayla for your hard work and being our guest blogger!
