Career Initiative Starts
Category : January 2017
Working with local partners and supporting the future workforce, TRS have joined forces with The Careers & Enterprise Company, Worcestershire LEP and Worcestershire County Council. Last Friday marked the first session at RGS Worcester where the panel and host discussed their career paths and answered student’s questions.
The panel brought together an array of experiences and backgrounds to provide students with a more rounded argument to options and impartial advice. Representatives from Worcester Bosch, University of Worcester, ISO Quality Services, Mazak and TRS’s own Apprentice of the Year shared stories of their chosen career path, skills that employers look for and the options available for young adults. RGS students relished the opportunity to test the panel and received top tips on Do’s and Dont’s in interviews and how to broaden their applications. Key suggestions were as follows:
- Don’t be late!
- Research the company prior to interview
- Make your CV and Cover Letter relate to the job you are applying for
- Employers find Aptitude and Attitude key and wouldn’t penalise for lack of experience or qualifications
- Look at all career options such as work placements, apprenticeships, university
With the success of this first event and some student workshops on the horizon, this initiative is looking to branch out further and help more students.
