You know a general career, sector, or field you want to work in but not a specific job
For example, you may be interested in working in the Media or Education but not sure what specific roles are available. In this instance, work experience is the perfect opportunity to discover what goes on in these industries. In some work experience placements, you can ask to do a couple of days in a few different departments to get a feel for what tasks and duties the varying roles involve.
To find the right work experience, in this case, you could firstly look for the big companies who provide the career you are interested in, such as the BBC for Media. Reach out to them, see what they have to offer in your area, or further afield if you have the ability to travel.
On a smaller scale, you can research what companies operate in this sector within your local area. You might find there is a local newspaper that offers work experience to students. In a company like this, there are opportunities to try different roles, such as journalism, editing, or photography.
