Job Searching techniques Masterclass – Kickstart Scheme

Job Searching techniques Masterclass – Kickstart Scheme


9th November, 2021 09:30-12:30 Training 125.00-150.00
Nobody ever said that searching for a job was easy or a task that they enjoyed.  The reality is, individuals job hunt when either, (a) they do not like the role they are currently in or (b) when they have to because of unemployment, redundancy, financial or other pressures. 
We’ve designed this workshop to equip you with practical tools and techniques to help make the process of job searching that little bit easier and more accessible.  The session delivers a structured framework and process that will help you effectively and efficiently target your job searching.  Learn from the experts and help get your career back on track.

Who should attend
Individuals participating in the Kickstart Scheme are encouraged to attend this workshop as it teaches essential job searching techniques and processes to help secure sustainable long-term employment.  Those leaving school, college and university and moving into work will gain lots of valuable tools, techniques, hints and tips from this workshop.
