Work Experience

I am struggling in finding work experience as a civil engineer. I have contacted all local firms and programmes, and i didn't get one! How important is work experience, can i get into the top universities without it?
after my degree I did 3 years voluntary service. now got a good job. experience is a must

Universities don’t expect relevant work experience for subjects like engineering. Getting involved in a group project and taking an interest in the industry is far more important.

Hi,
How did you find a voluntary job in Civil Engineering?
You dont need work-experience - what you do need is examples of your interest in this subject.
Have alook at these MOOCs - short, free, online courses - useful for topics to discuss in your PS, why does the topic or ideas presented interest you etc -
