This is a question Work Experience

We've got a work experience kid in for a couple of weeks and he'll do anything you tell him to... He's was in the server room most of yesterday monitoring the network activity lights - he almost missed his lunch till we took pity on him.

We are bastards.

How bad was your first experience of work?

Dogs Bollocks of work experience
A couple of years ago my sister was still at Uni in England. She starts thinking about the forthcoming summer and how she's going to earn some cash.

Now Mrs Spankengine is a bright spark and suggests she hooks my sister up with a work placement in her company.

Nice idea from the sister in law.

Actually it's an outrageously nice idea when your sister in law works at a famous advertising agency in New York, and lines up a job working for the summer as an assistant to the CEO, for some pretty decent pay. They even helped with the visa.

Post graduation and sister walks into a job at a similar agency in London. For some reason 'internship [for that's what the Americans call them] at prestigious NY advertising agency' looks a bit better on the CV than 'waiter in TGI Fridays'.

Wish I'd had a useful sister in law back in my day.
