I’ve recently done some work experience for Pragmatic in 7 dials, brighton. One of my goals was to get a taster of what it could be like to work in a professional environment. My experience in Pragmatic has been great and was a lot of fun but also very productive as I have made this portfolio website project.
Developing my portfolio was a very useful learning experience as I learned how to use WordPress. When shadowing employees, I would ask questions in areas that i struggled (which for me, was a lot of areas since I haven’t used WordPress before) and the person I was shadowing was always really helpful and at the end, I would know all about how to do what I needed to be done. I’m very happy with and also very satisfied by how this portfolio turned out.
I have also broken a boundary of doing work for 6 and a half hours in a day which, before I did the work experience at Pragmatic, I wouldn’t have thought about doing something near that because I’m still building up my stamina from having chronic fatigue. Now i feel like I would be able to do even more because it got easier, the more days I came in.
My overall experience at Pragmatic has been great. It’s given me even more confidence both in my own programming but also that I would be able to start to work. I also think that I have definitely achieved my initial goal of getting to see what working in a professional environment since I have a lot of confidence now.
