Work experience - did you do your school work experience in a related subject? Has that employer got vacancies or, does the employer know someone else who does? It is import to remember that, when you do go on work experience, it may be the only time that you experience the ‘world of work’ and, if you do well, you could get that all-important written reference to help you later.
Careers Fairs and Events
Many schools or districts hold careers fairs. You may be lucky and find an employer at one of these who is looking to recruit apprentices. You will need to have an open mind about what the employer does because some recruit into areas that you had not thought about. As an example, the NHS doesn’t just employ nurses and doctors - they also recruit trades people and office staff, so don’t be afraid to ask exhibitors about potential vacancies that meet your needs.
