Transition Year and Work Experience

As part of our transition year, we have to go and find three work placements so we can have some employment experience. As my first work experience, I chose to do it in a local pharmacy called Bradleys Pharmacy in Arklow town. To get my placement I called the pharmacy to see if they would be able to accept me for a work experience placement. I was able to do my work experience in Bradleys. I was very excited about being able to do my work experience in a pharmacy as pharmacy is something thatinterests me. I done different jobs throughout my work experience.

On the first day of my work experience, I worked in the photo printing section of the pharmacy. This was something I was never interested in doing or I did not expect to be working in this section of the pharmacy. During my work in the photo lab, I learnt how to print out pictures from your phone to real pictures. I also printed out pictures for all the customers that came into the shop to get their pictures printed that day as well. I enjoyed working in the photo lab more then I thought I would which is something I would not have learnt if I did not do work experience.

On the next three days of work experience I was helping out on the floor of the shop at the beauty department and the medicine available for customers to buy. I did not enjoy this work very much, it involved putting new items that were being sold into stock, pricing items and putting a price tag on them, date checking medicines, and putting out new stock to the shelves of the shop for customers to buy. I found this part of my work experience quite boring and did not enjoy it as much as the photo lab. On the last day of my work experience I was doing work in the dispensary section of the pharmacy. This is where the prescriptions are handed into and the prescriptions are done. This was the part I enjoyed the most when I done my work experience.

On this day I put all the medicines into stock and placed them on the shel…
