Work experience

Work Experience will help you develop a range of skills valued by employers and can help you to develop key job competencies. It can add to your CV....filling skill-gaps and might just possibly lead to a paid job....and sometimes you may be paid anyway. It can be an important step in returning to work. Even if you have a degree, you may need something to help you stand out!
