Work Experience, Placements & Student Internships
Get your foot in the door for a career that you really want and vastly improve your chances of making it by getting work experience. You may want to work for a major blue chip company or a smaller business, or perhaps you want to work in television or gain experience in your chosen degree subject - shadowing someone already doing that role is a great way to gain the experience you need.
You can find work experience in the UK under your own steam by applying for the many school leaver or graduate schemes available. Or you could write a speculative letter to some of the companies in your area. If you want to travel, you can still gain experience, either in a voluntary role or in a role that wil pay.
