    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!

    Hi there! I did work experience at John Lewis (on the shop floor, which differs to your role but I'm sure the dress code should be the same!) for that I would wear primarily black, so like a black skirt and tights/smart trousers and smart black shoes, although this doesn't have to be boring obviously, I'm sure you can wear a nice skirt as long as it's knee length ish. I would just act as yourself primarily, but be confident, willing to help, able to keep tasks on track and be generally what you would expect of one of their employees. Hope this helps and good luck, I loved my week at John Lewis, I'm sure you will too
