Finding a good job today can be a major hassle, this fact is certainly not news for most of us. For fresh graduates, getting into a desired career right after school can be in particular difficult. The reason is simply that graduates do not have any type of job experience and this is what employers today are looking for when they screen potential applicants.
Obviously and needless to say, this fact creates a paradoxical situation since a fresh by definition cannot have job experience, well, they just finished school and are now starting out with their search on the open job market.
However, today’s employers tend to be so picky they do not really care about this paradox situation in which jobseekers find themselves.
So what can you do if you happen to be a graduate in the UK who wants to get into a career as fast as possible?
My tip here is that you should consider an apprenticeship. An apprenticeship has several advantages as opposed to looking for a full-time job right once you’re finished with school.
It is there, during your apprenticeship where you can acquire invaluable first-hand experience. With this experience on your CV you can surely make an impression on any future potential employer. What’s even better is the fact that many apprentices in the United Kingdom are ultimately getting hired full-time. This means that you have quite good chances to get into a company once your apprenticeship concludes. This can be an invaluable tip for all those want to get into a particular company. Ask them for apprenticeship vacancies! They may not hire for full-time positions but may gladly take you on as an apprentice and then hire you nevertheless following your apprenticeship.
