When i did Work Experience i worked at one of the big accountacy firms in london. It was quite good fun, some aspects were a little boring but it was a lot better than other people's and i only had to do 4 days instead of 5.

I did my work experience at my school, with the IT technicians for 3 weeks.

Was a blast, spent some of the day building PC's etc etc then just went on games for ages Even built a 'mega' system at the end in a huge case and put loads of games on it! :cool:

I had work experience at Coutts for 2 weeks, and one week at Cazenove. It was interesting, but not terribly relevant to my coure; I didn't even mention coutts on my PS.

Over summer i hope to do some work experience at the times, that should be interesting.

I did my work experience with the outreach department at a theatre. Spent the week hauling sets around and doing workshops with kids mainly which was fun . They all called me Sauron cos of my LOTR t-shirt . Also one day the guy I was with was in Glasgow so he sent me with a dance troupe to do a contemporary dance workshop at a local highschool. Five hours later, I was in complete and total agony . But it was a great week

We did work experience in year 10. I tried to organise to go to local newspapers but I had no luck so the school set something up for me. I ended up working for the public relations department for the National Society for Epilepsy. I really enjoyed it and it opened by eyes a lot.

I did work experience at a theatre and got FIRED!!
For NO reason-seriously. I went there, they didn't tell me to do anything, (no exaggerating!!) so I just sat in and watched the rehearsals. I was called in for a chat and they asked me to leave!

Currently doing 2 week placement at London law firm Slaughter & May. It's one of the 5 in "magic circle", meaning you start on 28k as a trainee and 2 years later hit 50k. But there's more to life than money... the work environment is top but law isn't everyone's cup of tea...
