What to expect from a work placement at HK

| Published on November 3, 2021

The beginning of most meaningful ventures can be frightening whether starting out as a young person in response to the famous question encountered by many “what would you like to be when you grow up?” or when faced with changing careers. Whilst some may experience a burst of wondrous adventure, the unchartered waters may send others into taciturnity.

It can be very comforting and helpful to have someone available to guide you through the maze of confusion.

What can a week placement do for me?

A lot.

Not only are you having access to valuable time with professionals, but it also lends some clarity to what the practical environment is like. You gain a chance to:

  • Try out your skills
  • See if the industry is suited to your needs
  • Return to a work routine
  • Showcase your skills to prospective employers
  • Increase your networks
  • Increase your confidence
  • Assist you in deciding the direction of your life

Do not underestimate the power of small beginnings.

Our Crewkerne office was proud to offer guidance to a student from the Warminster School who is aspiring for a career in the legal sector. Under Hailey’s guidance, she explored the worlds of the private client and family departments. We gained the opportunity to make the answer to “who do I want to be when I grow up” that little bit clearer.
