When I first got to No Boundaries I thought it was like a store or something with people who are my age. The co-workers I work with are nice. When I started working here the first time I was nervous because this was my first job.
When I started working here it has been good and nice over here at No Boundaries. My favorite part of working here is typing and doing my art-work for the art show which was so interesting. It was interesting because at this workplace we are doing art for a neighborhood charity event and we will have a art show at No Boundaries on September 17th, 2015.
The skills I was looking forward to building include organization and other kinds like sales. I improved that at No boundaries and now I am better at typing and going to my email. So pretty much I know about my skills working here at No Boundaries. I will still use my skills when I need to type something on the computer and go to my email. I will also use my skills on my papers that are saved on the computer now that I am better at using computers.
To know how to type well and have other computer skills is important when we are asked to use a computer. For example, I will be working on my resume at my summer program and checking my email to see what my co-worker or my boss sends me to do.
My dream job that I want to work at is Sears because I want to work with clothing and to be good at sales. I am glad No Boundaries is helping me build my skills.
