    How to get experience for a job that you want

    Most jobs will be looking for you to have at least some experience in the industry that they are part of, to ensure that you will be able to do the job that they are advertising for.

    If you are going for one of the more prestigious jobs, you should be aware that many people will be applying for the same job, and that most of them will have the same qualifications that you do. In this case, the best way to get the job that you want is to have relevant experience that the employer can focus on in deciding whether to hire you or not.

    • Work for free. Many people who are just starting out will have to work for free in at least one job. This is because there are often so many people out there with more experience than you, who are looking to take on the same jobs. No one is going to take a chance on you unless you can offer something that no one else is willing to, and this means becoming an intern for a time.
    • Take placements. Internships or work experience placements often come as part and parcel of a course at University. Make sure that you get a good internship as part of your course and that you see it through to the end so that it can go as part of your work experience.
    • Network. Whenever you do manage to do anything which relates to the industry that you want to work in, network and get as many contact details as you can. You can then offer to work for these people for short periods of time, or even just to help them out with projects in return for a good reference.
