"Whether you’re looking for experience, placements or a graduate job, it can sometimes be hard to identify potential relevant employers.

Opportunities with other types of employers, or in other sectors, may not be as widely advertised, and many people actually find jobs and experience by pro-actively approaching employers of interest on a speculative basis.
