A Sandwell Academy student got her career off to a great start on a work experience placement at Sandwell College.
Harkeerat Kaur, who hopes to set up her own blog, is a keen creative writer and aspiring journalist.
She said: “Doing work experience at Sandwell College allowed me to get a real feel of how things are done in the work place. I spent my week working alongside the Sandwell College marketing department. This experience helped me develop new skills and gave me an insight into a marketing career. Throughout the week I was able to take part in proper jobs such as: photography, writing articles and undertaking a research task.
“The work I did was mainly based at the Central Sixth campus, which has a great atmosphere, and all the staff members I worked alongside were very helpful, guiding me on how to do the job properly.”
