As well as a means of skill testing, Christine Hodgson, writing for Human Resources Magazine, pointed out that an "inspirational" work experience can often help to fire a person's desire for an industry they had never considered.
She noted that work experience is not necessarily only or young people, as older and experienced workers can often be enlightened as to the mechanisms of an unfamiliar sector and consider a switch.
"Such positive experiences of work demonstrate to young people that there are many paths to success, enhancing their life and career aspirations. Crucially for businesses and organisations under efficiency pressures, such initiatives can deliver tangible benefits," Ms Hodgson explained.
Meanwhile, when firms do decide to take on a member of staff, Mat Armstrong, also writing for Human Resource Magazine, said it is essential that recruiters carry out background checks on the individual.
