Work experience & volunteering
This is a great way to gain experience, e.g. to help you get a part-time job or to get experience in a career you’re interested in. You can also use these experiences of work in an interview or on an application form.
Remember, activities that you are involved in during your spare time can also be useful for your CV, e.g. if you play in a sports team, this is an example of teamwork.
