Your CV is quite often, the first thing a potential employer will see from you, so it’s important to get it right. During job club, students will be taught how to create a suitable CV, what they should include and what should be avoided.
They’ll be example CV’s available for students to view and a template will be provided for them to create their own.
Along with this, students will receive a letter of endorsement from the electrical training manager, outlining the skills the student has gained throughout the course.
This can be used as a supporting document, acting as proof of the student’s experience and skills.
In order to find your dream job, you have to look for it – and there are several ways to go about doing that.
As well as the typical avenues used in the job search, during job club students will also be introduced to the hidden job market, shown how to use social media platforms for job search and employment purposes, and how to seek out and approach companies about potential job roles.
With 80% of job roles not being advertised, there are a number of opportunities out there that people aren’t always aware of, but we want to ensure our trainees have all options available to them.
Talking on the phone is part and parcel of getting a job, whether it’s a phone interview or just a quick chat to introduce yourself to a potential employer.
Because of that, it is important to us that we prepare our students for any kind of call, and at job club, that’s what exactly what we will help our students practice for.
With examples of good and bad telephone calls, practicing calls themselves including how to open a phone call and what information to be prepared with, we want our students to have the best chance possible at gaining their dream job.
At Job Club, we try to cover everything we can that could help our students gain experience and employment and we are more than happy to help our students in any way that we can.
This means that we actively encourage our students to ask questions, make suggestions, etc.
For example, in the past, we have had students ask us to assist them in mock face-to-face interviews and even advise them on the best thing to wear for different kinds of interviews.
We always strive to give our students the best advice we can and we have received plenty of positive feedback.
