    Hi,
    I'm in Year 11 and need to apply for a work experience placement soon-ish. Not sure if Build a Bear is a good idea or whether they offer any, but it just looks like such a fun place to work! From what I hear, you just need to be good with kids? Only thing is, is that I plan to go into Psychology in the future so I'm a bit wary about how useful this will be. Anyone had any experiences they wouldn't mind sharing? Or any other suggestions for experience elsewhere?
    Thank youuu

    Now, work experience is a tough one. I'd recommend going to a university like I did, expect that I changed my mind on what I wanted to do at uni (wanted to do Computer Science but decided I wanted to do Chemistry instead) and it's not very helpful with finding entry level jobs you might want to do at 16. Bur if you're 100% sure, go for a uni. Otherwise, go to Build-A-Bear. It might be useful if you end up working with children too.
