Adnan - My Work Experience

My Work Experience


This summer I have been fortunate enough to obtain a work experience placement in a law firm called Adams Solicitors.

At first I thought that working in a law firm would consist of doing very tedious tasks and making cups of tea for everyone. To some extent it has, but I have also found that the tasks have varied which keep it interesting and I have learnt a lot.

I was extremely nervous on my first day; I had never met any of the people that I would be working with. However, because the people are very friendly and welcoming it has been very easy for me to settle in. During my first day I was asked to make tea. Long story short, by the time I handed the tea over, half of it was gone.

In the two weeks of my work experience I have attended numerous meetings, some business related and others with clients. From these meetings I have learnt how it feels to be in one and how to portray your self in a meeting.

Halfway through my work experience, I was lucky enough to be joined by someone else doing their work experience. This meant that I had someone to relate to as they were in a similar situation to the one I was in.

Overall, from my work experience I have learnt that it is important to have very good communication skills as it enables you to work together with your colleagues and would be handy when using a telephone. As well as this you need to be very organised so that you don’t lose or misplace things. In the future I would love to work with Adams Solicitors again or even possibly gain employment there.
