For some reason, I dont think habbo would allow that! Lol!

At our school, you have the chance to either have Work Experience or have LOADS of homework!! :PPPPPPPPPPP

31-01-2005, 04:50 PM
Habbo did take someone on as work experience, can't remember the name now. I think it was in the newsie.

Would be good, but London is a tad too far for me :p

31-01-2005, 05:13 PM
I would like to go to Habbo for work experience!

I would give them ideas, see how it is run, know the staff etc

Whats the point giving yourself Rare Furni etc when that is not what makes Habbo go round?

01-02-2005, 06:17 AM
habbo have QUEUES of work experience emails, and most of them get an answer. You spend your time in habbo offices for a week.

01-02-2005, 07:07 AM
Yeah, I can imagine. I don't have a clue what I will be doing, still a year to decide. ^^

i reccommmend work experience at bbc, my friend met loads of famous people in doing so cuz she got work in top of the pops. she managed to talk to busted too. PLUS Matt from busted asked her out for a drink. easy way to attempt to date famous people :D. Even though she said no :eusa_doh:.

20-02-2005, 01:33 PM
GOOD IDEA: I Went To The Court House (i want to be a barrister)

20-02-2005, 02:07 PM
I went to a primary school for my work experience a couple of years ago. It was fun.. I love working with children. Myabe after my degree Ill become a teacher, or go into forensic psychology.. I just dont know.

30-03-2005, 07:10 PM
I haven't quite got that far yet, I'm in year 9, choosing my subjects. But I've got a place on this entrepeneur route which sounds really good, we do work experience in years 10 AND 11 and at the end of yr 11 we get a chance to make our own small business and keep the money! :D

30-03-2005, 07:11 PM
I have got a place at a graphic design studio for my WE :D

01-04-2005, 08:31 PM
mmmm i did it last year, got a place with the Surrey Advertiser - local newspaper incase you diddnt know, it wasnt that bad :)

01-04-2005, 08:33 PM
wehn i did work expenirance i didnt get any good jobs and end up in wh smiths. But in the end it was stilll quite a good exsprince

01-04-2005, 08:37 PM
I'm in Y10, and, as well as my work experience in Y11 I will do, I went to Ant Marketing for ten weeks as a techie :D

01-04-2005, 09:28 PM
I'm in year 9, I was thinking of going to a nursery, even if I did get glue put in my hair, I'd still like it, I love children, I don't know why.
I wanted to become a pediatrician, but I realise it's a very demanding job, but I suppose I shouldn't think too far into the future, and start to panic too early.

19-04-2005, 10:56 PM
For my work experience I have asked to go to a primary school. -cough- little brats o.O The joys. as some of you may know I already help at Brownies and they are EVIL little kids but you kind of grow to love 'em.

You may have also heard about the err interesting things my brother gets up to when I babysit for him. Spectate's advice was rather tempting but I'm too kind to carry that out. So I just threatened to call dad. >: )

Aaaaanyway, I would love to be a music teacher when I leave school. xD I take piano, classical guitar, rock guitar and vocal lessons atm. Classical guitar is my main area. I'm too shy to play piano in front of people although the other day I played in front of around 25 people. I was so nervous. :(

20-04-2005, 12:41 AM
One of my friends did work experience at a School, he caught a reception kid eating of the toilet, stole their snack box and put in detention. SO it must be fun

20-04-2005, 12:55 AM

29-04-2005, 09:24 PM
Well.. now, I was very upset on Monday. I found out I didn't get any of my placements which were : Childcare, Website designing and a chef. There were only a few computing courses and other people got them :( So the man who deals with the work experience read out places in our area. I chose one helping in an old folks home, oh the joy! I'll probably have to play bingo for them and bring them their tea :') I'm actually looking forward to helping them, and talking to someone wise! Another man (Techi teacher) Came up to me and the other man and interupted us (In a nice way :p) And he said he plays golf with the man who owns the old folks home and he said "I'll tell him to watch out for you and be mean to you" lmao, I hope he doesn't :p Well, I hope everyone's week or whatever goes great! ♥

29-04-2005, 10:01 PM
