    Hey Everybody,
    I am going to do work experience soon and I was wondering if anyone had any tips and tricks on how to act, I don't want to be just making coffees!

    In doing one week at the young Vic and one with the john lewis Magazine, any idea on what to wear? (I'm female) thanks!

    You could email in advance and ask if they have a specific dress code. I did this recently as the place I work is casual dress every day.
    If it's smart - dress smartly. If you're a girl - cute pencil dresses, pencil skirts and blouses with flats (or heels if youre comfortable).

    ASK AS MANY QUESTIONS AS POSSIBLE!! And always always always take notes. Just show willing - volunteer to do everything, even if it's a bit rubbish and seems like 'busy work'.

    Good luck!
