    I am desperate. I am sorry if this is the incorrect forum for this kind of thing, but I need help, and quite quickly.

    This may seem a bit of a tall order, but could any of you think if you have parents or people you know in certain industries, professions, in the following things: Physics, Chemistry, Engineering...

    If not, just list some companies, and where I might find info about them (website etc). I desperately need to do some work shadowing, and I will love anyone eternally if they provide so much as a half chance for me to contact somewhere...

    Please. Help me.

    Just in Essex?

    Some of the bigger companies have work experience schemes and may even have info on the website. I think my friend did an engineering thing at BP, but that's because she did an engineering course sponsored by them. But they obviously have a work experience programme, so try the site.

    + how urgent?

    Its VERY urgent, sooner the better. But sometime in summer is good.

    Im willing to go almost anywhere in England. Please help someone! Maybe state where you went, give me some contacts!

    Anglian water employ engineers if that helps?

    If it's an oil engineer you'd like to be you would have to head to Aberdeen - the oil capital of Europe. I know people there that are engineers and executives in oil companies. :confused:

    If not, get the yellow pages - phone up a company and ask to speak to someone regarding the possibility of shadowing one of their engineers.
