Our top tips for landing a work experience placement
Getting work experience with a well known company can be quite competitive. Here’s four top tips that will help give you an edge during your application.
- Tailor your communication. If you are applying for more than one work experience position, ensure that each of your applications is unique. Bonus points if you also shuffle your CV and experience to best suit the role.
- Make the most of limited experience. Nobody has lots of skills or experience at the beginning of their career, so make the most of what you have done, and look for innovative ways to show learnings from any outside-of-school activities or work.
- Be proactive and reach out to companies directly. If you are unsure about a specific requirement, then ask a question.
- You could look to do some volunteer work, or a virtual work experience, to help boost your skills and make your application look even stronger.
Currently, Halifax do not run a corporate work experience scheme. However, work experience can be sought on a branch-by-branch basis.
