|Gr 10 & 11 Workshadows!
Imrah Galant, Rylands, (pictured above) shadowed a medical technologist at Pharmacology Laboratory. "I learnt that working in a lab can be quite tiring because it involves a lot of walking around. The lab environment is very relaxed and team work is key. In the lab they test for drugs and they also test transplant patient's blood to ensure they take the correct immnosuppressant drugs. In the future I would like to pursue a career that involves working in a lab."
Faizaan Camroodien, Livingstone, work shadowed as a Financial Advisor at ABSA head office. He says "It almost felt as if my life was fast-forwarded into the future. I sat in offices and board rooms and communicated with real-time businessmen as if I were one of them. This definitely rates as one of my top experiences!"
Tyrique Adams, Claremont, work shadowed at Melex Industrial and experienced a variety of positions including graphic design. "Melex specializes in working with sheet metal. I found the designing very interesting because its all done on a computer and is sent to the factory and made. I found what it is like to have a day as a working adult. I see it is hard work and appreciated the breaks in the day!"
Britney Christians, Mondale, work shadowed with our board member Karen Gabriels at Allan Gray Orbis. "She gave me relevant information about a career in financial management. She told me how she started off and her first earnings. She also told me places I could go and study. This was a great experience. I now know I want to study something that has a business side and a creative side, possibly Management Sciences."
