I'm 23 years old and I'm entering the second year of Oxford's Economics and Management course. I already have a BA from a university in the USA. Besides getting a great second degree, I'd love to pick up some work experience and I was wondering whether it was common to find good work experience during the term breaks (December/January and March/April). What do students generally do during these breaks of almost 6 weeks? I've looked through a lot of employers but it seems that very few (I've only found one) offers internships over that break. I also see "Winter Internships", but these seem to last the entire term rather than the 6 week break. Has anybody heard of any such internships or other opportunities over the December/January break? Is there a reason why they don't seem to be more prevalent?
As always, I greatly appreciate any advice!
...and how to stay positive
