“The Work Inspiration program has definitely made me more motivated for school because it narrowed down what I want to do in life. I’m really interested in the IT industry. Seeing McDonald’s has made me more passionate because I want to do well in school and I want to succeed so I can get a good job and go places in the world.”
Fifteen-year-old Sean participated in a two day Work Inspiration program with McDonald’s and The Smith Family in mid 2013. He found the visit to the company’s Head Office in Brisbane fun, informative, inspiring and motivational.
“It was a really fun two days. We learnt heaps about the background of McDonald’s – it is not just about flipping burgers. We learnt about all the charity work they do, all the different departments such as sales and advertising and how much work goes into getting the burgers to you.”
“It was pretty personalised which was really nice because you got more knowledge out of it. We could ask questions and it wasn’t just a crowd of 200 people.”
“I wanted to go to the McDonald’s Work Inspiration because I thought it would be really interesting and because I love new experiences. I’m going to join the workforce soon so I thought why not take a shot and see what it’s all about.”
