Does this really apply to me?
If you are a current student, you may well be thinking – why should I care about all this? Surely thinking about my career can wait? I study hard, getting a good job won’t be a problem, right?
Wrong. Not just wrong. Dangerous.

Benefits of Completing this Job-Readiness Training Programme
Here are the steps we will take you through during our programme. This approach has brought success for clients who have now taken up roles in finance, IT, government, science & tech, healthcare, and in other sectors.
1. What job role?
We will start with an initial consultation in which we’ll discuss the real-world job role you wish to aim for as a career. We will follow this up by creating a job-finding and readiness plan covering the next 6 – 24 months or even further ahead.
2. Skills assessment
We direct you to enrol on an appropriate training course if there is a need for you to do so. You will learn to use and master the software tools used in the target role.
3. Job connections
We will show you how to join small job referral networks which will quickly yield job opportunities.
4. Building relationships
We will teach you how to build professional relationships with practitioners in your industry. This will include advice on how to put together email ‘connection’ requests, using language that will ensure that high-level individuals will be eager to get back to you, and perhaps even to offer you a job!
5. Useful contributions
Next, we will cover 11 methods that will allow you to keep adding value to the people with whom you’re building a relationship. We will also teach you what to avoid, making sure that you don’t come across badly.
6. Concrete experience
We will show you how to seek and get practical work or project experience. This may be a placement or internship or may require you to volunteer at the related business or organisation.
