We’re publishing a report at the start of November on the importance of work experience in bridging the gap between education and employment.
Work experience is so much more than just two weeks in the summer holidays – it can include providing mock interviews, offering shorter placements, giving career talks and so on. And these offer real benefits – if a young person takes part in 4 or more activities like this, they can be expected to earn £3,600 more than someone who hasn’t had such opportunities.
We’re collecting examples of good work experience over on our LinkedIn page – so let us know what first inspired you about work! http://ow.ly/pIAdA #notjustmakingtea
