    I am thinking of calling local firms and asking if they would be willing to offer an internship. The thing is, how exactly do you go about asking whether they would be willing without them politely rejecting your offer?

    Send them your CV; tell them what you want to do later in life, why THAT company would benefit you, tell them something that really makes you stand out from the crowd

    Make a speculative application, ie send a CV and a covering letter.

    Hi James,

    PM me and I can give you some advice: I am a careers coach and have placed several students already in the finance and accounting sector.

    Thanks
