The world of work is changing all the time, unskilled jobs are disappearing and the number of jobs available with no qualifications has fallen by half. There is no such thing as a job for life anymore.

The recession has had an impact on the economy, highly skilled people are being made redundant which makes it more challenging for you as everyone is chasing the same jobs.

Make sure you:

  • Get the grades and have the skills needed to make you attractive to prospective employers.
  • Get some work experience whether it’s paid or voluntary this will show employers that you are keen to learn and committed.
