The BREAKTHROUGH Programme
If you are finishing College or University during the next couple of months, then your next big challenge is to make your breakthrough into employment and start earning money as soon as possible.
For many, the opportunity to put newly, hard won qualifications in practice, is a serious business in a very competitive environment and while academic or vocational achievement is much sought after by employers, this is far from the whole story.
Increasingly, employers find it difficult to differentiate candidates on the grounds solely of academic achievement and this means that a well structured and appropriate CV is a must to get yourself into the frame and on the road to a career.Thereafter, performance at interview becomes the game changer.
And unfortunately, thats where many excellent job applicants have difficulties Our colleges and Universities excel at the academic side and while they do their best to embed the importance of a strong CV and an understanding of the interview process on their students, the effort fails in the face of more pressing priorities.
The BREAKTHROUGH programme can help you make the difference and while we cant guarantee that youll make it immediately to the first rung of your chosen career ladder, we can guarantee that your understanding of the need for a strong CV and the interview process will most definitely increase your chances of success in the future.
