    I'm in Year 12 now and I see all these people talking about how important work experience is essential/highly looked upon etc. so I decided to be slightly more proactive and look for some work experience somewhere but the problem is I really don't know where to start looking. :confused:

    I want to do computing at uni so I want a relevant work experience placement but I really don't know where to go to look for some.

    I was going to approach some web designing/programming companies in town but I just don't want to be some random 17 year old asking for work experience when they don't want to give any and I'm not even sure web designing/programming companies are the right thing to do for a computing degree course Besides, I'm not sure if they may ask for any programming experience (I have none :erm: ) so yeah, basically, I was hoping any of you may have any genius ideas?

    Thanks if you reply
