...So, where did everyone go?
I'm about to start mine on April 28th i think but i still dont know where i'm going! I chose mainly theatres - like backstage on props and scenes, but i didnt get any of my choices so i've gotta find somewhere else now :rolleyes:
Im thinking bout hairdressers, a posh one like Toni & Guy or Staffords :)

    I went to Sound Control which is a musical instrument shop here in Ednburgh. In fact, there all over the country :p . I really enjoyed it. Good luck finding a place and have fun :)

    I went to a hairdressers, not a posh one though. I got to do a member of staffs hair twice, but for the rest of it i only got to sweep, pass things, make tea and coffe, just the basic stuff that isn't to do with hair.

    I was a boring office trainee, didn't do anything like, drank coffee, rang a few people, had a good laugh :)

    No real work experience than the real world of work itself, not just 2 weeks somewhere :)

    I've done work experience at a t shirt company, work experience with my dad surveying houses and work experience at a haemophilia centre. :) I'm currently doing voluntary work at the local hospital radio station so I do some teching and presenting as well as visiting patients in hospital.

    For my year 11 experience I worked in a lab working with different chemicals and preparing biological samples for future experiments.
    It wasn't as boring as it sounds and they were making tea for me!!

    I did my work experience last February at the local combined Crown and County Court. Twas really good, I got to sit in on a lot of cases and at one point we had a murder trial where a man murdered his best friend! There were security guards searching those who went into the courtroom, news cameras and everything. :eek: They didn't let me into that trial. Not sure whether to be :( or :) about that.

    I went to a nursery, actually it was the nursery that I went to when I was an ickle 4 year old myself so it was fun seeing it from the other side. And it definitely made my mind up for me that I didnt want to work with kids!

    I worked in a dentist surgery for 2 weeks - i don't know what possessed me! I wish i went to an insurane firm/lawyer/solicitor, as i may have seen court cases, and a lot of people got monetary gifts afterwards, eg £100 cheque in one case!
