Planning to Succeed will always give a head start for any worthwhile endeavour in life, and being employed is reward in itself for the initial time invested in getting documentation right.
Having a plan in place is the best strategy possibly for entering the workforce. The transition say from School to work, or from one job to another, needs to start with a well thought out process which should include the following:
- Having an up to date Resume/CV
- Having a well written Letter of Application prepared, so that when a job of interest comes up, you have the basis for putting forward an application.
- Understanding Interview Techniques
- Thinking outside the square on the many options for being employed (Traineeships / Apprenticeships.
Each of these aspects are important, but perhaps the most important asset you will have, is a positive attitude which will single you out from other applicants when it comes to interacting with a potential employer.
