could I have some advice please? I'm in college and we have to do a 3 week placement around Easter, but what's the best way to go around asking for work experience?
do I just go into the place where I want to go and ask to speak to someone about having work experence?
or do I write a letter or email or phone about asking for some work experience?
I haven't don't this since year 10 and all we did was have a form which the employer needed to fill in, but we don't have that this time (just the dates - we do have forms they need to fill in however we don't get those until the company agree to the work experience).
also our tutor said perhaps not use email because its unreliable since shops and businesses etc, have lots of emails and it could get lost in their inbox
also would shops etc even reply to my mail work experience request or should I just phone (I'd like to avoid this as I heavily dislike using the phone), or go into the place I want to go and ask for someone who deals with work experience, and take a covering letter & cv with me?
and who would I adress in the letter/email? SIr or Madam or the company / shop name?
Is it really that intense? Would I cope?
