Applying for your dream job, work experience or apprenticeship

Good morning Yr11BAF


Have you got what it takes to apply for a job or work experience in Business & Finance.  Which blue chip company would you like to work for?  How are you going to impress a potential employer and compete for a place in the current economic climate? Would you believe it if I told you that nearly one million young people between the age of 16 and 18 are NOT in any sort of employment, education or training!

Where do you start to get your CV at the top of the pile? How important is your covering letter?
By now you have probably got a career path in mind so who do you rate as the best employers in the market and what positions are they currently advertising. Try looking at the following websites and find a position  that you feel confident applying for:
 www.gumtree.com
http://www.totaljobs.com/
jobcentreplus
http://www.connexions-cw.co.uk/
http://www.apprenticeships.org.uk/

Once your happy with a position that's appropriate to your skills, experience and personal attributes that you have identifies, tailor your CV to represent this and create a covering letter to post out with it.

Good luck and enjoy
