    Hi,

    I'm going to be honest, I want to do a placement to gain experience, money and skills that will benefit me in my final year.

    Only two things are, and I must admit, I am
    1. A bit lazy. I sleep at like 01:30 A.M. and get up at 10 A.M. If I start working I have to get up a lot earlier, and I know it will take a long time to get used to.
    2. Relied upon by others. At the moment, I have to drop off my siblings to school and asked to do tasks last minute by my parents.


    My question is, a few months within a placement, will I enjoy it and get used to the working life?

    Thanks

    No you won't, sorry.

    It's like the death of your childhood rabbit, you learn to live with it, but you never get used to it.

    Right. I mean its only a year, imagine if I graduate without this experience and enter the workplace for the very first time?

    No experience, and by then it would be hard to find jobs with a year contract or so
