Getting a smart start
Earlier this year, I spent time visiting schools in some of the more deprived parts of London. I saw for myself the positive impact that work experience can have for young people - in particular for those who do not have family or friends in a position to help them get that experience. Work experience is an essential first step on the career ladder for many top professions. Without it, young people can find themselves falling at the first hurdle when applying for jobs in their chosen career. But not everyone has the same access to work experience and internships in certain professions. It often depends on who you know, rather than what you know.
