    Hey guys, I'm really struggling to find any work experience for 2 weeks in the summer. I'm not sure what career I want go into so dos anyone have any places I could try in the following sectors:

    Marketing and advertising
    Media, publishing, journalism
    Law, human rights
    Robotics or bionics

    I have already tried the obvious places like bbc, itv, sky, the guardian
    Thank you

    Roughly what geographical area are you in? If you don't wanna say on here PM me
    I went from having no contacts to going to 3 different international corporate law firms for work experience so know how hard it is to get the attention of places
    (I'm now year 13, was offered a gap year job working for international law firm pinsent masons but turned them down for Durham lol)

    Have you looked on studentladder.co.uk ?
    I started off work experience at Iceland Foods in-house legal team at their HQ (north wales...) (a lot more exciting than it sounds I promise!)
    I would say honestly you probably won't be able to get into the massive international law firm offices in London without contacts I sent letters to local high street/boutique law firms- often most are happy to help- just look for firms in your area and send a CV and covering letter! Happy to help with that if you want as well

    Yh, I've literally tried each place on that website twice and most deadlines are closed now . I guess I'll try local law firms, thank you, I really appreciate the help ☺
