Re: ..get a big company to take me on for a work placement?

haha, yes its typed better.. it actually has punctuation in the proper places ;) pretty much all the sites ive been on to get addresses/contact info have all said 'no agencies' so i think thats a non-starter. ive got about 20 places so far, and im drafting letters so theyre specific to each company,...
