I always get really nervous when I ring a company asking about work experience and I don't know what to say? I've tried writing down what I want to say but it just sounds really weird cos I'm reading it off paper.

Just say ''hello my name is ..... And I am just calling up to enquire about work experience as to whether you accept them to work for ...... Or not as I am very interested''

I wouldn't say my name straight off, I'd just go straight in with the obvious question, "hello, I'm calling to ask if you ever offer work experience"

Make sure you do one in a fake accent so they don't recognise you the second time.
