Get a Job
Get a Job has been designed to help young people navigate employers' complex recruitment and selection processes.
In this programme, JA volunteers from the business community work with students to help them to understand how to apply for a job.
The students learn what employers look for when reviewing a job application, developing transferable skills for the workplace, what to include on a CV, finding and applying for a job, preparing for an interview, body language, questioning techniques and how to follow up after an interview.Click for more information
