Year 8 World of Work Day 2024

  • by

Friday 8th March 2024 was Year 8 World of Work Day at my son’s school. My eldest son Josh (13) had the day off school to visit a working environment and gain experience of the world-of-work.

I agreed with my wife that Josh would spend the day with me to see what I do for a living. I was a bit worried about this at first as I don’t have a traditional job and I didn’t actually know what I would be doing on 8th March. Sometimes I’m on-site doing installations and troubleshooting, but mainly my day involves technical support phone calls made from my home office. I was a bit concerned this would be boring for Josh to sit through.

Fortunately, the job that came in this day was a visit to my long-term studio support client Chris P. He needed some help getting his vinyl decks set up and some adjustments made on the desk in his studio.

We started the morning with a quick selfie as we packed our tools into the car and set off for the drive to Chris’ studio.

Once at Chris’s we started by getting the decks working. The decks were already in place, I just needed to make a few adjustments on the DJ mixer to get music playing through the speakers.

Our next task was to clear Chris’s desk and reposition the table legs. Using the drill and screwdriver was no problem for Josh. He and his brother have been helping me assemble flat pack furniture at home for years.

Once we had the legs sorted, we needed to put all Chris’ equipment back on the desk and reconnect everything.

When all the gear was back in place, Chris tested the setup to make sure everything was working properly. Chris was lovely with Josh and very happy to tell him about his own work experiences as a DJ and professional musician.

After saying goodbye to Chris, we went to get some lunch at the bakery.

Year 8 World of Work Day had been a success.

A Big Thank You to Chris for letting me bring Josh with me!
