So use our mentorship and work experience program as a stepping stone to get you where you want to go. Make sure, however, that youmaximise this opportunity to get the most out of it for the benefit of your future career. Here is how you can do that.


Complete tasks and log what you do.

No matter what work you are assigned with, you are gaining knowledge and experience that you cannot get in the classroom. Keep track of everything you are doing so you can add the responsibilities that are relevant to the job you will be applying in later on into your CV.


Ask questions.

Remember that the purpose of this mentorship and work experience program is to expose you to the realities of being an account assitant nd help you learn and experience its different aspects. As such, if something about a task is unclear to you, ask questions and follow through on any topic you are interested in. Doing so will make you a better informed candidate when you get invited for job interviews.


Seek feedback.

As a newbie in the sector, chances are, you have limited knowledge of, which is a great area upon which you can improve on. To do that, seek feedback from your mentor. Find out our where you can make improvements in your performance and what you can do to become better. While it is difficult to hear criticisms, consider this as an opportunity to make yourself qualified for an account assistant role. Plus, you will have something to talk about during interviews when you are asked about your weakness or the area where you might be lacking and what you did to address it.

Building your work experience remotely can be a challenge, especially since there can be a lot of distractions around that can keep you from staying on tasks.
