Have you ever wondered what it was like to work at the City of Tea Tree Gully Library? Recently I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to do just that and I can tell you that I had an amazing experience full of enjoyment and happiness. I learned everyday life and work skills that I can use not only today but in the future.
Throughout my week at the Library, I worked alongside a hard working team who showed and taught me so many things. I learned how to give good customer service as well as the ins and outs of how a public library functions. I enjoyed very much talking to each of the staff working at the Library. They encouraged, supported me and always gave me positive feedback, especially when I didn’t understand something or didn’t know how to accomplish a specific task. I must say that my communication skills and my confidence have risen upwards, due to the fact that I have been working out of my comfort zone whilst being supported by an intelligent and caring group of people.
In conclusion, I must say that I enjoyed every single minute of my time at the Library and I would definitely recommend the work experience program to those I know. I will take away many new skills as well as having had lots of fun.
