What have you people planned for work experience this year. If you;ve already donme your work experience what did you do?

Some ppl in my school a few years back went to join the navy and was actually flown to school on a helicopter!

I sent my application off this afternoon for the Norwegian Consulate but I'm quite worried. Is there a good chance I would be accepted to work in a consulate? The consulate here is speaks English but I don;t know if I would get rejected or not?

I was a teaching assistant at the primary school I went to as a kid. It was cool meeting up with some of the teachers I knew as a child. One of the best things about it is that I got the kids to learn about Japanese language and culture. (one of my big interests). It was great to be able to teach them something - I find it very fulfilling and I guess that's what makes me want to go and try out teaching in Japan as a gap year after I finish college.

With the right work experience, you could find that it inspires you a lot like it did with me. My only bit of advice would be to apply early and enjoy it :)

i started my second semester of college a couple of weeks ago. i'm taking a journalism practicum for one credit hour working for the campus newspaper. i enjoy it but since it's a practicum, i do not receive pay. i wrote my first article this week and went and spoke with the editor a little while ago. she says that it'll probably run in the paper next week and that she was very impressed (even more so since it was the first thing i had ever written that would be published.) :) i'm excited to say the least

There's no doubt the funny/awkward side to it as well. I know this is a bit off topic but I've read quite a few editorials by this schoolyeacher in Japan. Its a very unique take on life there and its pretty funny:

I worked in my old primary school. Being a two-minute walk down the road, that was especially convenient. Plus I could go home for lunch and a bout of Halo 2. :D
