When you apply for a job, college or training place, people are far more interested in the skills and attitudes that you have picked up on work experience. They are not bothered about where you went. For example, the ability to work as part of a team or to be able to communicate your ideas both in writing and in speech, is far more important to a university tutor recruiting law students, that the fact that you had your work experience in a solicitors’ office.
