After one interview with the higher department at my college for the position, which gave me a bigger picture of what I was heading for, they explained everything and how to improve my interview techniques and that’s when they put me forward for an interview with KMB themselves.
The day of the interview I knew it was the day that I had to do the best I could, and after months of struggling, I finally had the opportunity to show my skills and why they should take me on as their apprentice. They welcomed me as soon as I arrived, and I knew I’d like it here.
After days of waiting to hear from them, the apprentice team at my college finally called to tell me that I had the place if I still wanted it, and of course I took the opportunity. It finally seems things are going well for me!
So, nearly 4 months after starting at KMB shipping, I am really enjoying my time here! I work in the European department with Jamie, Dan, Scott, Lee and, most of the time, Sophia. They always have a great sense of humour and enthusiasm about everything and I am so thankful for them making me feel like a part of their team.
From being welcomed on my first day to now doing more complex things, such as doing quotations, sending emails, sorting out POD’s (proof of delivery) and making sure I can help in any way possible. I guess note taking was a good first step for me. I feel like I have brought a lot to the team, not only humour but my confidence and hardworking skills as well. I have the help from the team that I need in order to complete any apprenticeship assignments that are related to the company. Any questions I have they are happy to answer.
