Find your own placement
Not all vacancies are advertised, therefore you may need to approach companies to find out if they are able to offer any opportunities.
You can do this by:
sending a tailored letter and CV to companies enquiring about a short-term work placement or a few days work shadowing
using company Facebook pages to request the name of the department or person you could contact about vacancies as a type of online networking
getting in touch with contacts you have made through networking
