When you start college it seems like you have an eternity to make up your mind about what you will do after graduation.

Richard Norman for The Spinoff A new Victoria University survey of Wellington employers reveals the importance of work experience - of any kind - when choosing from similarly qualified job candidates. It was a public sector manager who said it most starkly, summarising the views from many other fellow employers: "If I get a CV from somebody who hasn't got a record of part-time work I don't care how good your grades and qualifications are, I won't look at you."

MODELLING firms are preying on young hopefuls to scam them out of thousands of pounds by falsely promising work with top brands. A Sun Online investigation today exposes one agency promising lucrative shoots with high street companies to young girls - as long as the wannabes fork out up to £2,500 first. Our undercover reporter was promised work paying £2,400 a day with major UK retailer ASOS - but only if we immediately handed over thousands of pounds.
