The transition from studying to working can be quite difficult. Finding a job in the current labour market is also no easy task. As long as you’re a student you probably won’t worry about it too much, but once you’ve got that coveted degree you will find yourself faced with the complexities of the labour market
A plan can be useful.
In this training course, you will:
- explore and analyse the current situation within your field;
- find out which organisations are active in your field and how you can approach them;
- get tips on making choices which will help you towards landing your ‘dream job’;
- identify the steps you might take to achieve this.
Before attending this training course you will take a LINC test (interests and competency test based on personality types identified by American psychologist John Holland. This will produce recognisable results you can use to get your career off to a flying start). The results will be discussed with you, and you will then need to complete a preparatory assignment prior to the training.
At the end of this training, you will have:
- Identified two relevant employment options, or the possibility of further exploring your options;
- an overview of possible obstacles and resources specific to getting a job in your sector;
- an overview of target organisations and different ways of approaching them.
You have no problems writing a letter of motivation or CV, but what is the best way to pitch and present yourself during an interview? And it’s a no-brainer that the desired result is getting the job!
In this training course, you will work on your conversation skills with both a trainer and training actor.
