MY FIRST EVER Work Experience
Assessment results wasn’t the only thing required for the ROSA, however, as to gain eligibility for one, we would have to complete two weeks of our choice at work experience. This was an event I was extremely keen and passionate about participating in, as not only could I just get my first practical experience in any working environment, but also in an environment surrounding my passion of cars, motorsport and engineering.
Lining up a variety of placements to approach, I contacted Lotus and KTM dealership and workshop Simply Sports Cars, and they responded back their acceptance, more than happy for me to complete work experience at their business. Thus, I managed to secure a placement at Simply Sports Cars to work from November 25th to December 6th.
There, I got to absorb the full operations of a sports car dealership in their car sales, servicing, engineering, parts management and so much more. For the first week, I would be an assistant mechanic in their workshop, helping with the servicing and repairs of customer Lotus cars. For me, who had already learned much of the engineering principles of automobiles, this was my first time seeing everything I knew be put into physical practice. From simple tasks such as oil changes, to more advanced procedures like brake pad replacements and wheel alignment, all the way to engine head and gearbox rebuilds, this gave me an amazing chance to see how it all gets done.
FULFILLING MY LIFE GOALS WITH THE HELP OF HEMLIBRA
The second week would see me help around in the dealership part of Simply Sports Cars, housing each of their accounts, sales, parts and engineering departments. With their accounts manager, I got to learn the process of managing their accounts for import, export, purchase, selling and much more, all while making sure that they still comply with government regulations.
With sales, I got to see how they sold their cars to customers, as well as their close link to servicing and the workshop.
Parts would see me packing and sorting all the parts that are bought, sold, delivered and utilised on all of SSC’s cars, and in engineering, I learned the process of developing aftermarket products that could be sold to customers, where technical and economical validity and effectiveness are evaluated to determine what, when and how to develop a particular product.
Completing work experience at Simply Sports Cars was a truly amazing experience that taught me so much about the skill, knowledge and organisation that goes into running a sports car dealership and workshop. Everyone there at SSC were very supportive and always ensured that I could perform at my best. Sometimes they would be surprised themselves about my knowledge of things! I cannot thank them enough for providing me with such a good work experience.
COMPLETING Year 10 & LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
With work experience wrapped up and all assessments and exams completed, Year 10 was finally complete, and with that I received my ROSA. Now going into Year 11, my idea about my future career in motorsports and engineering is better than ever, and I will give it my all to do the best I can! The thing that has really changed things for me is the improvements to my health due to Hemlibra so now I can do the things I could never do before.
