Find a job can be difficult, but there are things you can do to make it a bit easier.
With many people applying for jobs, standing out from the crowd is important.
Employers are looking for the right person for their business – that doesn't mean the person with the most qualifications.
Employers will think about your attitude, personality, previous work, skills and experience.
You need to show them how good you are, and why you are the right person for their job.
Think about things you are good at, for example,
- working with others
- being friendly
- arriving on time
- being organised
These are all things that a boss is looking for that you can't get by passing an exam at school or college!
Top Tip: The more jobs you apply for, the better chance you have. Many people get frustrated and stop applying for jobs – don't fall into this trap.
Keep looking, and keep applying!
Remember, you don't have to find your ideal job straight away – most people have various different jobs throughout their lives.
