Education is one thing, careers is another. Honest, BOTH MATTER
In today's new normal, students in Schools, Colleges and Universities need to equip students with the best opportunity in careers & explore job opportunities.
What does your CV say about you ? What do others say about you. Employers have less than a minute to scan your CV and experience. Stand out and format it correctly.
Link with your Job, Work & Career Advisors at your school, college or university to help you. We have links with employers and advice to education institutes to explore more.
Broadcast your experience ! What do you want to do, what makes you tick, what are your proud of and why are you the best you can ever be ?
Employers and recruiters DO look at your social media networks, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter or even Facebook. & posts. Lock it down ! It may be fun posting a pic of you partying ... your employer could see it, even with a google search. Be careful of your email handle - it makes a difference !
What have you DONE before. What do you WANT to do ? What does an employer WANT ? How can you sell yourself based on your experience - Be truthful, honest and promote your interest and past.
Interviews are often intimidating whatever age you are so you're not alone!
The best thing you can do is have Mock Interviews
Test and Test again.
Have mock interviews, do your research and find something that lights up your mind.
Degrees, GCSE and A Level exam results DO matter, but only 67%. I've been there. Bad grades or difficult economies doesn't stop getting a job. You have the same right as anyone else. Be confident, draw on testimonials from tutors, past employers.
Your employer, recruiter and hiring manager is often older than you, just fact.
Appeal to them in their own level using LinkedIn and other social networks, sign up for updates on your ideal employer.
Be visible. Be Active. Be Interested.
Research a potential employer and subscribe to their jobs alerts. Use job boards but ensure the CV is honest. Have a cover letter !!!
Whats next, Where, When, How ?
Schools, Colleges and University graduates see a looming skills crisis yet employers still face a skills gap.
In 2019 15% of students left education after GCSEs without going to sixth forms.
Only 83% go on to further education after passing their A-Levels.
This employment & education gap is only going to be exacerbated in the next 5 years.
It is time for employers, schools, colleges and universities step in earlier. Showing them the world of work, engaging earlier than ever before.
We consult with local boroughs, employers, schools and colleges to create showcase events for their companies and appealing to graduate talent
We work with educational institutes and parents alike to help students getting ready for the "world of work".
There are 8.89 million pupils in England in 2020. This is an increase of 71,000 from 2019.
The rate for recent high school graduates not enrolled in college was 18.2 percent. The jobless rate for recent high school dropouts was 14.8 percent in October 2019; it is only set to be higher now.
More than half of college leavers are going to university for the first time. Last year, 50.2 percent of English 17 to 30-year-olds enrolled on undergraduate degrees at British institutions, according to the Department for Education (DfE).
There is a ticking time-bomb that will affect employers and educational institutes alike over the next 5 years.
There is a number of demanded skills or the Government Shortage List - End Employers need to work harder, better and closer with schools, colleges and universities to engage, enthuse and attract the talent of the future.
From my own experience, there is less than 10% of employers who really "get it" - talk the same language verbally, socially, on media and more to the new intake of cohorts they require to grow.
We go into schools showing the pathways they can follow in employment in conjunction with potential employers. Recruitment and hiring has changed. Inlighten employers started attracting students well before they leave education.
Talk to us on how to can create a career fair for your school and college and how to attract the employers that fit your students curriculum .
