They don't do "work experience" here.
At least, that's not what it's called.
For a lot of college programs, they require a mandatory job placement be done for 120-600 hours depending on the major we choose.
I did mine with Ontario Parks because I worked for them the previous summer.
I pretty much revised their emergency plan and security measures,made changes where I saw fit.
I created a new inventory system for them in my spare time, dealt with campsite evictions, presented the staff orientations and such.
Basically helped out the park wardens/rangers who have the same rights and such as police officers within the park boundaries.

EDIT:
And when i go back to school, I'll be doing my job placement either in London University Hospital or at the retirement lodge that my mother in law is the director of.

I worked in a primary school. Absolute nightmare, but it showed me that teachng was not for me (or at least not with such young children.) In saying that it wasn't all bad, there were plenty of funny stories by the end of it.

Default Re: Work Experience

When I was at school I did work experience at a clothes shop (through no choice of my own) and absolutely hated it.

In college I did health and social care and did my work experience at a school for disabled people and it was the most rewarding thing i've ever done! I went back to help out now and again afterwards.

Default Re: Work Experience

I'm not sure I understand what you mean, "do they offer work experience in your country ??," but I've been working for three years at a local hotel.

Because the economy is poor at the moment, people traveling as you would expects is down and my hours have been drastically cut. So I've actually been collecting partial unemployment and actively been seeking other employment, but to no avail.

Default Re: Work Experience

Here we are offered 'Star Courses' where you go and work/train for 4 days in a certain area. Next week one of my friends is doing a barista course and the other an animal welfare course.
It gives you the skills you need to get a job that requires previous experience.

I'm not doing anything like that, I just straight up got a job with no experience needed in a supermarket, part time to fir around school.
