Work placement at CISCO Systems 01/10/2003
In my 3rd year of secondary school, I was required to do one week of work experience. My brother was a software engineer at CISCO Systems, and he arranged for me to do my placement in his office in Edinburgh. At 15, my only technical skills were to create websites in HTML. I spent the week fixing broken links, and learning about virtual routers. This was my first experience of life as a software engineer.
