    Got to sort out my work experience, really would love to do something in the line of graphic design, got a list of about 10 companies in my local area.

    Any one have any advice for what to say when I email/ ring them? And anyone actually done this for their work experience? If so, how was it?

    Lol, Im gonna be so nervous.

    I tried to organise a self placement at the Apple Store, but unfortunately they don't do work experience... *sigh* Instead I am currently working at a housing office for the council. The people here are awesome, and I am currently on my last and 2nd week.

    when i did work experience, it was a compulsory thing you at school, there was a list of companies that the school had that you could pick from, or find your own placement. i tried to find my own, my mum knew someone at her work that knew someone at Michael Laird Architects, so i didn't really have to do anything to find work experience

    so ask other people around you if they know anyone who works there and get them to do the asking, if you can. if not email them or phone and say you are looking for work experience and if they are able to accomade that.

    Does what it says on the tin, instead of going to school for a week you go to a workplace and help around, and learn what its like to have a job.
