7 Business & ICT Department Is it for me? “The trip to Jaguar was great. I never knew there was so much to making a car. And talking to one of the bosses was a real bonus!” “It was quite scary interviewing the shoppers but they were all really friendly.” “Looking around the store I realised that all of the workers were doing exactly what we had learnt about in class.” I never knew the manager was responsible for so many people. When he told me I didn’t believe him. Now, I want to do that job!” “The coursework is really hard but I like the independence it gives me in class.” “Time flies by in some lessons because I am so wrapped up in my own work.” “I didn’t realise I knew so much already. I’ve learnt so much more though – not just from the internet but from other people.” “What I planned to do with my work went a bit wrong. But I’ve changed a few things and it’s looking much better now.” “Sometimes I don’t agree with other people’s views – so I tell them mine. Sometimes I’m wrong!” “Everytime I buy something now I ask myself is it really worth that much?”
