Work experience

Showing 1 to 14 of 14

I'm trying to get as much work experience as I can that involves animals, but there's nothing by/near me! I need help - I've asked for help at my college, but whenever I go to sign up for an appointment with the person who organises work experience, there's no appointments free! I can't wait for my college so if anyone can help, then that would be really appreciated. I need work experience with animals that's near me.

a tip- volunteer at a local pdsa charity shop, and also ask them about the pettycash(?) challenge/ look o their website

this counts as volunteering AND WORK EXPERINCE ON YOUR CV

no probs- ur welcome

n good luck- i found it really hard to get my work experience cuz the skl duznt arrange it anymore

maybe you might find it helpful to find a local vet clinic, n present them with ur cv, but also a letter from someone at ur skl, like a carrers advisor

they just need to write a quick letter like- joanne is interested in becoming a ...., she is a student at... she is like...

it doesnt have to be long

I know, I've sent out letters to like seven vets, but the one that I actually go to never replies! I've tried them for the last four years!

omg- i had the same prob this summer in trying to phone the bio chemist labs

they never replied!!!!!!!!!! they only even picked up the phone on me once- to say tht the lady who deals with work experince wasnt in n to call back another day, and then never picked up the phone again!!!!!!!!! i really sympathise with you

That was exactly what happened to me! They said phone back when she's in and whenever I phone, they don't pick up! What bio chemist lab did you try? What career do you want to do?

id love to be a doctor but the skl gave me numbers for other sciency jobs n i thought biochemists sounded really interesting- damm i really wanted to go!

i think it was in london n thts about all i know cuz they never picked up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They kept saying(when they did pick uo) tht the work experience coordinator wasntin or whatever, i didnt think they had one but they could have passed me on to someone important who cd say a direct yes or no to the whole work experience thing

a waste of my time :(
