Hello, my name is Felicity. I am currently a co-op student working at MitoGraphics, And I am going to be sharing my work experience here. My journey started during September my first impression of the place when I first walked through those doors it was so different from what I imagined it would be. First, the smell was really strong it smelled like an ink shop. I imagined there would be a lot of computers throughout the building but it turned out there were more machines than I expected to be there. I was extremely nervous and shy to be around everyone because I was not familiar with anyone, or to what I would be doing. I learned that day not everything will be like you imagined, as I have never been in a workplace environment like this before.

 

 Every task I do around here changes every day, sometimes I will put together a video. I have created some unique and entertaining pieces from when we do projects from start to finish. Like the job we had done that required the usage of a flatbed printer. This experience I enjoyed doing very much as well as experiencing new things as I was creating and learning how to make videos. I will also do some weeding, or even helping with sewing. I have gotten a lot of opportunities to watch a lot of cool machines and processes be done. Coming here has helped me understand what I wish to do in the future as a profession that is what I came here to do. My hope for a profession is to work for a graphic design company at first and make a good living and later on be a freelance graphic designer running on the experiences I have had. My time here has been enjoyable and fabulous as I am getting to experience a real workplace.

 

 Being a co-op student here is a great opportunity because coming here gave me a basic understanding of what I should be learning about to become successful. I am grateful for what I have been able to accomplish and learn from being here. As I now understand the importance of teamwork I can see that everybody here does their part to make sure everything is done as a team. I have been able to see what it is like to rely on everyone and cooperate. Everyone is excited to see new projects and appreciate what everyone else does for the company. I have gotten some useful work-life lessons from coming here, also some essential training on the basic information I did not understand before. Like how I was taught for the first time how to use a phone system, and how I learned how to use a new video editing program that I have not seen before.  and getting to see everyone who has been a great help in the career path I wish to pursue.

When I first came here I had no clue what I was doing or how to do anything, however, as time passed on everyone helped me learn in their own ways. When I first started to come to mito I was nervous but coming every day after I was not so nervous I had become comfortable here. I was able to come out of my shell and be myself as I had also gotten used to the smell of ink over time. Since September I have come a long way to becoming a part of this team which is nice to be with and it has made me feel welcome and included. As time is going on I have some laughs and giggles, also a lot of the time I needed help because at the time if I did not understand something or I was stuck. But now to all that help, I have gotten used to what I'm doing and I don't need as much help as to when I first started. So in the end when I am working at MitoGraphics as a co-op student it is a great way to learn and experience what work is all about. So overall working here for the short amount of time I have been here it has been amazing as I couldn't have pictured it any other way. So this is what it's like being a co-op student at MitoGraphics.
