New Year, New job!
Supporting one of our participants who hasn’t worked for over 10 years and he got the job!!
What we did
We worked together creating a CV and looking at how to upload CV’s onto job search websites. We worked on Interview techniques, such as the STAR method to embed how to structure your answers to questions. There are different types of interviews and we explored these during the Interview skills pod. There are various things to consider depending on whether the interview is by telephone or online interview, and these can all be talked through and practised beforehand.
Our job search skills pod
After developing confidence in these areas, we moved onto the job searching skill pod where we learn how to use the internet to search for jobs. This also includes how to sign up to different job agencies, how to refine the search to look at jobs based on location, hours, and even distance!
Our participant found a job that he was interested in at a well known food chain, and he applied for it. He had a telephone interview and was invited in to look around the workplace. He was then offered the job and accepted it straight away! We are so proud of our participant and wish him well for the future in his new job.
A positive outcome through job search, employment or training is what HeadsUp aims for with each and every participant.
