Work Experience at MDS
Work Experience Placement, Year 10 – Ralph Allen School – Bath
When I first came to MDS for my work experience placement I was quite nervous but I soon got used to my surroundings. Over time I learnt what it was like to work in an office environment. The employees were friendly and easy to talk to.
During my week at MDS I was taught how to install a virtual machine and learnt the basics of networking. I attended a presentation on Cyber Security, where we were asked to investigate how we might plan to hack a company and the steps that could be used to protect against an attack. I also gained an understanding of Cloud Computing.
In summary, my time at MDS has given me a good view into the world of working in IT as a career. I am grateful to all the staff for letting me work at their office and making me feel welcome during my stay.
