Some seemed to know which town they wanted to work in...a start. This is the advice I gave to them.
- Choose say 6 firms you would like to work for
- Ask everyone you know "Who do you know at....?"
- If they find someone who knows someone there...
- Say to your contact, "Please can you help me? If you were me, how would you get an interview with...?"
BUT you have to help yourself first
