Getting experience

Work experience is useful as it tells you more about what you like and dislike doing, as well as what your strengths and weaknesses are - and it looks great on your CV too!

See the section on Internships & placements to find out more about advertised opportunities, the unadvertised job market, and international internship schemes. Work experience on your CV really helps you to stand out from other candidates. It enables you to demonstrate to future employers how you have applied your knowledge and skills in practice, and proves you have gained a better insight into an industry sector or role.
