    Applying for law related stuff but have never had a full time job, feels a bit bear on the page when they give you so much room.

    I did a small internship at a local firm, doing administrative tasks.

    Is it worth putting paper rounds? I never have before but working at 6am at a young age is not so bad?

    Any thoughts?

    Think about it in terms of relevant skills. Does the paper round give evidence of any relevant skills. At face value, perhaps not, but if you got up at 5am for 4 years and cycled 10 miles, then there's a level of grit and determination involved which if you highlight, might be useful.

    Hmm yeah, I suppose! Organisation in route planning could be construed also I guess. Cheers

    You haven't said what stage you are at. If you are making graduate applications, then school age material is too long gone. If you are getting in a apprentice/school leaver then it's fine.

    You can use it in your first year, but it won't be credible after that, and remember you'll be making graduate applications at the end of your second year, so you need to crack on with getting experience while at Uni.

    Hence applying to these insight days, vac schemes and campus ambassador roles! Also applied for coordinator roles for the gym sports clubs, manage a football team, mooting and pro bono volunteering, can't forget my degree xD
    Cheers for the help
