Jones (2004) supportsit that obtaining degree is not sufficient because the employers are expecting more than just the knowledge of a degree. They predominantly value the abilitieslikeleadership, team working,communication, and problem-solving skills.

Along with their academic qualificationit equips that the graduates, for gaining the required skills, abilities and experience to stand firm as employable and fit well in the working environment.
Task 1.1 Research and evaluate suitable organisations that could provide industry experience
As soon as we started the current semester, we were introduced this particular module called Work Based Experience as one of the subjects. In this context, I have prepared the following report for my assignment which wasbasedon the activity work placement.
First, I wanted to choose a placement which is related to any kind of computer related work in order to build up my future career in Information Technology (IT). Subsequently, I have applied for a few voluntary IT jobs and also,personally asked a few ITprofessionals with the intension to get a placement in their organisations.
Initially, I hunted to find a better computer related company online for placement. When I googled I havefound a few vacancies. Among them I was attracted by the volunteer Web Designer job for the volunteer organisation called ‘Building Hope’which is one of theUK Registered Charitieswho works for the improvement of the lives of the most disadvantaged communities in Ethiopia. Unfortunately, it did not work out because the closing date for the job application is on the 21 February 2017 and the assignment handover deadline was on 19February 2017, However, I have applied for this particular job and if I will have selected I am anticipating to transfer the interpersonal skills which I have gained from this project.
On top of that, I have spoken at least with two Information Technology (IT) professionals for getting placement in their organisations. Among them, one is from the IT section of Department of Work and Pension (DWP) at Wembley Civic Centre. When he talked to the head of the department regarding me, he replied thatthe procedure is to go through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Checkand a few other formalities before selecting someone for placement. Since these proceduresmay take more than six weeks, it was also, not helpful to me. Besides that, also, the another professional whom I have requested for placement said that the policy of the company haschanged recentlyas no moretrainees for placement.
Therefore, I have decided to select one of the projects which I normally do with my colleague Ram. Since he is a professional electrician we do contract jobs together. The project which I have chosenwas involved redecorating and modernising a mini supermarket and this project is ideal for providing me the industrial experiences
