Place where you can sign up to trial different types of jobs/professionsWatch

Hi, just wanted to share an idea I had today.Imagine a place where you can sign up for immersive courses in different professions. It could be like a 1/2 sort of mini internship. i.e. say you are interested in Advertising you can sign up to get a taster in for example taught by someone who works in the industry. You could get a look into the day to day. Do some practical tasks etc. Basically you get an in-depth intense taste to see if you think its something you would enjoy/match your skills.Thought behind this- A lot of people don't know what they want to go into especially out of college. A lot also end up doing conventional jobs and jobs that they don't really want to do and get comfortable and forget their talents or never find it. Society deliberately doesn't want us to know how many options there really are out there. Now you could do an internship, however, from experience a lot of what you do in internships is wasted time, I knew pretty quickly whether I would like/dislike or hard to get into without contacts. With this everyone could have the chance explore a lot of options in a relatively short period of time.Any thoughts?
It's already available - it's called saying yes to every opportunity that comes your way to making your own opportunities, researching, learning, using the library, using your school and uni careers service, talking to people who have jobs about their jobs, and not least, arranging your own work experience.
