It's a long time ago since I did mine. Statistically speaking, if you approach the big companies you should have more chance of finding a division or group that has placements, although I know of several people that obtained excellent placements with little one-horse outfits and were offered permanent jobs afterward. In my day, Universities maintained a network of contacts with suitable employers and 'found' you potential hosts to approach. It might be worth having a word internally

Head for the big, possibly public companies. Councils are good and possibly NHS. Companies like BT are now are centralised with the main networking stuff being based out of Leeds I believe whilst on the ground stuff is done by a seperate arm.

Don't be afraid to spam your letters out far and wide and do it as soon as you can or other consciencious students will get the drop on you and get those juicy places.

Good Luck
