I’ve finished my study, now what?
So you’ve wrapped up your online course, and now its time to put your best foot forward and step into the working world!
Keep it short and sweet! Stick to the essentials – is it relevant to the job you’re applying for?
Highlight your experience in roles of responsibility or teamwork.
Consider doing volunteer work. It can give you useful experience and potential employers are always impressed with candidates who go the extra mile to boost their own skills and experience.
Ask friends and family if they know anyone in the industry you want to work in.
Be genuine and friendly. Don’t fear networking opportunities – everyone is in the same boat!
Ask questions. Engage others in discussions and query their interests.
Sell yourself. Speak clearly and confidently about your skills!
You got an interview!
