I need to apply for a work experience placement pretty soon and i'm kinda stuck on options. I wanted to do somthing in media or law, the only media one I seem to be able to find is a placement at a local newspaper as the local BBC station don't take anyone under the age of 18.

I was thhinkg about law, but the only problem is though, everyone I know who went to work at the courts or magistrates, ended up photocopying and making tea for hours on end.

Anybody got any sugestions as to what I should look for? I need four options and i've already got one.

They weren't photocopying and making tea for hours... if that happens to you, complain.

I went to a library... cause im that hardcore.

Wherever you go you'll end up photocopying and making tea.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

If you can't find anything good, just go to every local shop or whatever you can find. Or they'll stick you at Tesco for certain.


If you can't get anything good, go to a charity shop. They'll be happy to have you and you'll be doing something worthwhile. In fact, you should do that anyway.

I went to an old peoples home, I worked as a catering assisstant in the kitchens. It was terrible

Whatever you do make sure it is something you will enjoy, even if its not concerning the career you want in the future. Thats my advice, but I don't have any suggestions, sorry

Um, has your school not given you a list of work experience placements to choose from? Because I advise you to choose that. I chose Assistant Visual Merchandiser for John Lewis, 'twas pretty awesome.

I worked at a community center looking after little kids and playing bingo, dominoes and curling with old people. Was well good. One of the old dudes had the coolest American soul accent and one of the kids was just the sweetest kid ever. Missed him mum so spent the whole time clinging on to me, crying.

I worked at a vets for my official work experience (done placements of farms, kennels as well though) and I really enjoyed it. Got a bit boring when nothing was happening, but the rest of the time I was watching consultations and operations, so not all work experience is making tea.

In fact, they were the easiest. The other placements I did were a lot of physical work, but were still really good fun.

If you are considering law, go for it, even if it is just to confirm it doesn't interest you that much. If a specialist subject like law is for you, even just overhearing conversations while doing boring tasks will be of some interest, and you may get placed with a really good person who actually tries to help you enjoy it by talking through what they are doing etc.
