Work Experience at Transputec
George Cooke shared his thoughts on completion of his work experience with Transputec:
"I was a school leaver having passed 3 A-levels and just beginning my gap year, looking to bridge the time between finishing school and resitting some A-level in the summer before applying to University.
Transputec offered me work experience for three months during which time I worked with the Sales Support team. I was entitled to the same respect and inclusion as any other employee with Transputec. They really managed to make me feel like an actual member of staff, rather than someone on temporary work experience.
I was repeatedly offered new and challenging opportunities, including with the Chairman Rickie Sehgal and the CEO Sonny Sehgal. They both personally expressed their interest in my progress and well-being.
I also attended trainings under the Transputec Academy, which were delivered by employees of Transputec and vendors. This has equipped me with transferable skills, like dealing with my daily workload, that has taught me to be better organised and prioritise my priorities, both of which will help me going forward onto exams and at university.
The working environment has been very warm and incorporating and the last three months have been greatly beneficial to reforming my character and restoring some much needed determination."
Raymond De Koninck
My name is Raymond De Koninck, I came here to Transputec to build up my experience in software testing. I learned about the development process and the relevant tools needed.
I learned about what my strengths and weaknesses are. My message for other interns out there is this: you should go for it, because it really shows what it is all about.
