    Hi, I didn't think I would have August free, as my family were planning to go on holiday - but it has been cancelled.

    I don't have anything to do in August and I think it'd be great to get some work experience, I'm a real asset, who could add real value and It'd be a shame for a month of mine to go to waste.

    I'm going to be studying economics next year, so ideally it would be suited towards my degree, I'm not sure about any exact careers. Where could I realistically start applying for work experience for August?

    Today I've sent my CV off to some local estate agents for example, but It would be great if you gave me some other ideas, thank you.

      Try local law firms/accounting firms, they usually they take you(in my experience)
