Helen Carroll's Professional Experience

2011 - 2011

Colaiste Chiarain, Croom, Co. Limerick - secretary , receptionist

As part of my degree, I was offered work experience (cooperative education) in a secondary school in Co. Limerick. My work ranged from answering phones, writing letters to reorganizing the filing system and the daily accounts. It was unpaid, but surprisingly rewarding. I had the opportunity to help students, parents and teachers. I was involved in projects, such as organizing the incoming first year into classes and sending the parents information. My placement lasted 5 months.
