Opening Doors | Maximise your Job Prospects | Brighton MET
Why this course?
Our new Maximise Your Job Prospects course runs for one week. It will provide learners with practical tips, 1:1 coaching and support from a friendly and experienced tutor, and aims to improve self-confidence, motivation and employability skills. You will be given help and advice to showcase your talents and deal with gaps in your CV or a lack of work experience.
You will tackle subjects that would not normally be covered in feedback from employers, such as; Why might you fail to progress to interview stage? How appealing is my CV? How do I perform during an interview?
You will also receive practical tips and advice on job searching, using social media to assist with finding roles and filling out online applications.
- Identify your existing key skills and strengths and those employers are looking for
