Get That Job! – Training Course Outline

If you are facing redundancy or just looking for a new job, getting another position as soon as possible is likely to be your top priority. But if you’re finding it difficult to take that first step it may be that you are lacking the confidence to start again. And that’s not surprising. For many of you it will have been a long time since you wrote a CV or went for an interview and these will seem like impossible hurdles.

We are uniquely qualified to help you. Not only do we specialise in writing skills training, we are also a recruitment agency–which means we understand the job market better than most.

Our ‘Get that job!’ course is designed to give job seekers the confidence they need to take the first step. It’s not just about spelling, grammar and punctuation. You must make a potential employer interested enough to find out more about you. The course covers hints, tips and techniques that will get your CV noticed and how to write the all-important covering letter or email.

The next step is the interview. Our course tells you what to expect at interview, shows you how to prepare, and gives you techniques and information to help improve your confidence and impress the interviewers.

If you are looking for a job, make your own good luck by attending this course and improve your chances of success.
