Help! I need a job

Posted on March 30, 2021 at 11:36 am

For many people, this last year has meant that they have either lost their job, been furloughed or have not been able to get a job in the first place especially if they work in the hospitality or leisure sectors. Financial help in the form of benefits has, for lots of people been a lifeline but now the future is beginning to look brighter, and jobseekers are ready to find a job to give them the security they need.

This is a good time to re-evaluate the skill set that you have and to consider whether additional training would be useful to increase the chance of getting a good job. It may be that a career in a different sector is worth considering especially if your circumstances have changed. A good first step is to enquire at local colleges about the courses they are running at the moment or in the near future and sign up for any that would be useful in your job search. Some courses will be free if you are in receipt of certain benefits.

Agency work is a good way to pursue employment and can give you experience of working in a sector or for a particular company without any commitment. Often when the company gets to know you they may offer you a position permanently should one become available.
