Bridgend County Council


Where was your GO Wales work experience based?  

My work experience was at Bridgend county council in there IT Department. 

What skills did you gain on your Work Experience?  

Whilst there I didn't gain any technical skill however I gained skills in other aspects which are also just as important these being communication, teamwork and resources responsibility & management. 

What advice can you give to students going on work experience?  

My key advice for any student planning to do work experience is honesty, be honest with yourself and be honest with your mentors, if you’re not sure of anything then ask and if your asked to do some task and you’re not sure just ask, there is no such thing as a stupid question  

And if you have got anything else you would like to add.  

One thing I would like to add to this is be stubborn, be persistent in your goals, don’t let anything or anyone stop you from what you want to do. Work hard and you will succeed, be persistent and you will be successful.
