The thought of doing work experience can be frightening but try and see it as a positive, fun experience. It will give you an insight in to your chosen industry and might be useful in deciding what career you want. And, it will also help you develop your self-confidence and communication skills, meaning you will be able to work better with other people in the future.

Here are some tips on how to get the most out of your work experience:

  • Choose work experience in a job you think you might enjoy.
  • Find out a bit about the job before you go.
  • Ask as many questions as possible during your work experience.
  • Be prepared to do menial tasks like making the tea.
  • Be punctual – excuses for why you’re late won’t wash in the work place.
  • You might be asked to keep a record of your placement so remember to write down what you’ve done after each day.
  • Remain professional at all times and don’t complain if you get bored.
