Forage Opportunity

I found an opportunity through the recommendations the university gives on useful courses and websites to use for developing your future career which is different than the opportunities that others may give you. I am not sure where did I exactly found this information but I am sure that I found it through the university. I was really looking for a job this year and I found a website that was recommeded called Forage which I really recommend everyone to go and visit their website ( Forage provides virtual work experience opportunintes for anyone interested in any subject. Forage offers free virtual work experience programs designed by top companies to help individuals explore careers, build skills, and prepare for employment. These job simulations provide a realistic glimpse into day-to-day roles, making them distinct from traditional online courses by focusing on practical, job-specific tasks. Participants can complete tasks that mirror real work, compare their work with model answers, earn certificates, and even connect with recruiters, enhancing their employability in a unique, hands-on way.

Talking about my experience in using this website would definitely benefit some people who might be interested to know much more paths in gaining knowledge. I had a virtual work program called Global Finance and Business management with JP Morgan Chase&Co. I delved into the world of data analysis, mastering the art of interpreting complex datasets using Excel and Tableau. The practical work I did in Excel, especially breaking down extensive data into a comprehensible pivot table, was challenging yet rewarding.

Tableau transformed this data further, turning vast numbers into clear, concise charts and diagrams, making complex information accessible and understandable. This tool was instrumental in visualizing data effectively. Presenting my findings through PowerPoint, I learned the nuances of business communication, particularly how to convey intricate data to diverse stakeholders. This experience not only honed my analytical skills but also enhanced my ability to communicate complex information clearly and effectively.

Such experience made me want to go for more experiences of this kind. Here are some photos of my work that I did through my virtual work program:
