Dear Mr. Whitelaw,
I am writing to express my extreme deification with the work experience course, which your company provides for apprentices. Last two weeks were a great opportunity not only to observe, but also to be a part of the working process, to master skills and acquire knowledge on the practical basis.
It was an honor to have a chance to perform as a PA and conduct a number of office duties, experience real workload of 9 to 5 job and the conditions, in which people work. Thanks to this, now I have a better understanding of what my future job may consist of, what main aspects it may include and what I can be accountable for when applying for this vacancy.
I was very enthusiastic about the possibility to learn more about computers. For this reason, I find the idea to organize a three-day course for beginners not even great but brilliant, as the course helped me to get a general overview of main programs that facilitate the performance of everyday duties. Being diligent and persistent in my studies, I tried to remember all the useful information so that to be able to make use of it in my future career.
One more and it must be the most beneficial aspect of my experience was the communicative one. It is taken as read that job must bring pleasure as working surrounding has enormous influence on the fulfillment of tasks. I would like to express gratitude to you as the head of the department for irreproachable organization of teamwork and to the stuff for their willingness to help and really nice attitude during my internship.
I hope this was not the last time of our cooperation. I would greatly appreciate the possibility of joining your team.
