    I'm 17 years old and am studying at college now. I want a career in business management that specialises in marketing and possible advertising however I have no experience that I can put onto my personal statement when applying to uni. Any ideas of places where and HOW i can gain valuable experience in this field within the London, milton keynes and bedfordshire area.....thanks

    In terms of your personal statement I would say its more about you personally and not experience. They would probably be interested in why you are choosing the course and your aspirations. The experience part will come into play as a desirable element employers are looking for. Anyway you should send out prospective applications to companies you are interested in, let them know you are looking for experience before starting Uni. It's worth a shot and good luck with it!
