What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
Being a Digital engineering apprentice suits me to a tea, as I am always challenging my problem solving, imagination and creativity skills, with each day never being the same. One of the reasons why I love being a Digital engineering apprentice is that you are able to work as part of a team of talented designers, being able to design.
You spend most of your time sitting down looking at a computer screen for long periods of time, which is evidently not good for a person's health.
