    I'm doing my GCSES at the moment and i really want to find work experience for this summer - I've sent out my CV and cover letter to 100 or more places and so far nowhere has been successful. I know there are schemes but most are passed the deadline to apply now. has anyone had any work experience in the financial sector in/near London?

    Get your careers adviser to look at your application. If it looks like a mailshot, then it will make little impact. Quality over quantity imo, they need a reason to go to the trouble of offering you experience above other people. Think wide when it is for the financial sector. Business experience in general is good, but it concerns me the quality of your app is not good, not focused and poorly researched.

    You should also be patient.
