I took the opportunity to expand & develop my skills within the business industry by obtaining2 a week’s work experience at Telford Ski Centre, where I handled inward & outward communication3 for the company, promoted health & safety & handled customer’s requests. The company4 emphasised the importance of communication, public image, & advertising. My desire to study5 Business & Management strengthened because of my enjoyment & success in my work experience.6 Through studying Public Services at level 3 I have gained the ability understand & sympathise7 with people I meet, maintain an informed & active position in the world today & appreciate &8 understand people’s actions. I feel the three most important points I have learned so far from9 my work experience, is first the ability to understand what drives a business, & the processes10 needed to help resolve any barriers to continued growth & profitability. Secondly, being able11 to look beyond the numbers to the business trends & drivers, & thirdly being able to work to12 deadlines & handle pressure well.13 I believe an important trait of a business person is the ability to be able to deal with many14 challenges. I played outside of school for my club rugby team, whilst playing for the hockey &15 football teams for the school. This participation has strengthened my abilities to lead &16 communicate within a team. To play in a team needs dedication, time management & teamwork.17 From these roles, I have learned the importance of trust & dependability which are essential18 for success in business. I also enjoy listening to music & watching films- which are both19 activities that allow me opportunities for both relaxation & for socialising with friends.20 During the summer of 2014, I partook in the NCS programme, where I spent a week away with a21 group & joined in the team & individual strength-building activities such as canoeing, rock22 climbing & orienteering. After this, I spent an additional week with the team working with23 Cancer Research, to raise money for the charity and awareness in my local community.24 Since July 2017, I have worked at The Talbot Inn, taking responsibility for the security of25 the pub & customers; promote health & safety; managed the internal & external business26 transactions & worked as a waiter in the pub also. Throughout this, I have been able to27 maintain a good relationship with other staff & with the customers, developing my28 communication skills whilst serving during intense & busy shifts & multitasking successfully.29 As a result, I am a forward-thinking individual with drive, ambition, & ability- traits that30 are vital for effective business management & impressive academic performance. I possess31 strong team-working skills, can work individually or as part of a group, & have excellent32 organisational skills that I have gained through my academic & work experience. I consider my33 key strengths to be making analytical judgements, people & time management, making decisions,34 assessing business situations & identifying important points. I have excellent interpersonal35 skills which allow me to relay business information clearly to my target audience, & can36 prepare well thought out, crisp presentations for both individuals or groups.37 It has been these past experiences which have shaped me as a person and inspired me to pursue38 a career in Business Management. Therefore, I am truly excited & looking forward to furthering39 my knowledge in this field. The degree will act as a foundation for future success in the40 fast-moving & powerful world of business. I am eager to meet new people, explore a new41 environment & above all immerse myself in the study of business.42 I have only recently ventured into the world of business & I am passionate eager to learn43 more. In the future, I plan to start my own business & a business based degree will aid me.
