Work experience is great and it provides students with many benefits whilst gaining skills and helping choose the right future career path for pupils. Having work experience on a Curriculum Vitae will make a person stand out to employers as they will notice they have motivation and a real passion for work. It will also help to boost a students confidence in themselves!
The STEM placement students are sending us weekly blogs all about their experience in the world of work!
See how Monika is getting on with her STEM placement!
"KBC is an engineering consulting company that mainly focuses on the oil refining industry. I was introduced to the main points of the refinery business and how it works. I started working on a simulation software by KBC called Petro-Sim. I talked to an engineer who talked to me about RAM and mechanical engineering and where it is heading. I attended meetings where current and future projects were discussed. I talked to many people from the engineering team to know what they were working on and see what kind of work they are doing."
