Work experience? Where are you going or where did you go? Watch
I went 2 weeks in St. Johns Teaching hospital for some experience. Real eyeopener.
well I spent a month in Tanzania when work experience was on. does that count?
No my father does not work at hsbc but he is a barrister and is very good at getting what he wants hence my 4 weeks at hsbc.
i spend a lot of time with him i can do work expereince with him ne time i want but i am hoping for a career in banking and finance and economics.
I organize my own work experience I don't leave it to people who don't know what I want. In year 10 I did it at News International at their Internet Department and this Summer I'm at BBC News in London
I worked for 2 weeks in a design studio, I sat on their computers surfing the net, occasionally delivering things around Manchester for them, or cutting up drafts from the printer. It was fun. They gave me £100 at the end, and being 15, was rather impressed=P
I did one week in a lab with the National Blood Service - they let me do loads of practical work by myself (but obviously they supervised me so I didn't muck up) like mushing up umbilical cords and extracting DNA - huge amounts of fun
I also did one week in the paediatrics department in a hospital - I just found it amazing being in a hospital environment and they were all so lovely! Plus I found the atmosphere a lot less depressing and lively compared to the general medical ward I volunteer on
I've got a mental image of someone squishing up umbilical cords now and I have diner in five minutes
Week at the Financial Times (3 short articles were printed under my byline yey)
Did a day workshop thingie at UBS Warburg, looking at casestudies, markets, shadowing someone for the afternoon etc. Hoping to do a 2 week work placement at another investment bank at the end of the summer just before starting university.
Does babysitting for a cute 2 year old girl and playing play-doh with her count?
i did mine in a special needs school, was such hard work and sometimes upsetting, but still absalutely brilliant.
At 16 I spent 2 weeks working in the local planning office - mainly stuffing envelopes
At 17 I spent 3 months working in the local library for one afternoon a week and then spent 4 months (including 1 after my 18th birthday) volunteering at a local community run cinema (the one in Atomic Kitten's video from last christmas )
My brother worked as a classroom assistant for a school for people with autism and other such disabilities last term for a few months, and I think he gained a lot from it.
