Technology work experience placements

“My work experience with Empiric was very good. I met a lot of very funny and bubbly people. I never really liked technology at first, but when I came to Empiric I discovered a whole other side of technology, a side that is very interesting and fun. Not only did Empiric teach me a lot about technology, but it also taught me to interact with many other people.

Not only did Empiric teach me a lot about technology, but it also taught me to interact with many other people.

At first I thought I would never want to go into technology, because I thought technology was hard and if I go into technology all my free time would go. However, Empiric has shown me that, while at first there is a lot to learn – the Empiric members were teaching me how to use databases like Salesforce and WordPress, which I thought I would never understand – the next thing you know I’m staring at a computer using Salesforce and WordPress like a professional.

Empiric has made me love technology, and because of Empiric I will hopefully pursue a future with technology.”

“I completed a week of work experience working with the IT department at Empiric and was able to observe what goes on behind the scenes of the innovative and empowering scheme for young women called Next Tech Girls. Here I was able to learn about life working in web design, where I was able to practice skills such as designing a website, coding and using the database holder called Salesforce. All of these skills were extremely helpful in terms of opening up the different routes within technology that I could possibly take up in the future.

I’ve been very fortunate to work with Empiric as it is a unique company with a very open and uplifting atmosphere that is welcoming to everyone and all people from all backgrounds. The ethos at Empiric is truly amazing, as every proud employee strongly believes in the company and work together to make Empiric the most enjoyable place to work in. Who would have thought a desk job would mean so much more when working with a company as brilliant as Empiric? I really enjoyed talking to one of the founders, Sam, about how he started up the company and how fast it’s growing. I’ve learnt that everything does not need time to develop – but does need determination, effort and belief.

Work experience has been much more beneficial than I thought it would be and has helped me to identify my interests

Personally, the best part of working with Empiric was being able to get to know the team behind Next Tech Girls and getting to preview their futuristic upcoming ideas and hopes for the project. Working within technology is definitely the route for me, but after working with Next Tech Girls I would love to come back and be involved in the future. I love the idea behind the whole scheme of empowering young women like myself and being able to benefit society through tech.

Work experience has been much more beneficial than I thought it would be and has helped me to identify my interests, and has taught me that technology is present, it’s among us and it will benefit me in every career path that I may pursue.”
