With A-levels and GCSEs finished for this year and results due to be released within the next few weeks, many students are finding themselves in a position where they need to look for a job vacancy if they have decided to leave education. With the new laws, GCSE students can no longer leave education unless they have a job or training program already lined up to go in to. A level students sometimes chose to take what’s known as a Gap year, allowing them to travel around a bit before they settle into a career.
Many students simply want to look for work and start earning money as soon as possible. With so many people looking for jobs and job rates still recovering following the recession, many employers are finding themselves inundated with offers of employees and CVs. This makes it all the more important to ensure that your CV and cover letter is written to a high standard, includes all the relevant information and contains no spelling mistakes/punctuation issues etc..
There are a number of places to search for a job vacancy such as The Job Centre, online jobs boards, social media websites, local newspapers and recruitment agencies.
