I'm doing work experience with this VERY prestigous company (becuase i bummped into one of the people in charge and asked for work experience) this company NEVER EVER give work experience to anyone unless they are in there final year of tertiay education (i would know i have been trying for the last 4 years!) The fact that i was acctually able to get it makes me over the moon! But the assistant only offered me 2 days (working in the office area as an assistant getting coffee, sweeping etc.) and if i do well they will offer me more. Now the thing is I'm only gaurenteed 2 days (and i dont think they will rush to do a whole set of paperwork to allow me to come in again, no matter how great i am btw i will still try very hard) A letter of refernce from this comanpy will almost gaurentee me a spot in uni/college (and looking at a scholarship) but is it rude to ask for one after 2 days, i mean they dont really know me but it was 2 days of work so i am still entitialed to it right?! part of the course means that the company must fill out an evaluation sheet and make a response (basically the response is an unoffical reference) so it really isn't like i'm asking for that much more. sorry for the long post!
