Panicking over work experience. Watch
I’m currently in year 10 and looking for work experience. I didn’t get much notice as last week we were told we had to get work experience by the first week back after half term (next week). I want to get work experience at a law firm (I wouldn’t mind having science-related work experience but there’s nothing like that in my area) and I’ve applied to 6. I’m waiting on 4 to respond and 2 have rejected me. To be honest, I don’t think any of them will accept me. It’s too much hassle for them. I don’t have any family members who could get me relevant work experience. I just feel stuck. I don’t know what to do or where to go for help and my school want us to be “independent” (in other words, they can’t be bothered to help us in any way). Any advice?
Do your school have a reserve list of placements? Sometimes these are offered to those who have found it hard to obtain a placement.
