Students trying to find their first job face an unprecedented set of challenges today. The jobs' market is extremely competitive, fewer vacancies and employers demanding applicants are better prepared not only in the recruitment process but also be able to make a fast and effective start in a new job. How can Education Establishments, and career guidance professionals, respond to these challenges and help their students?
There are 3 main challenges:
- Support: Provide students with the best support to use new ways to search for jobs
- Succeed: Help students to be successful in the recruitment process
- Protect: Provide essential business awareness, knowledge & skills to allow students to make an effective and rapid start in a new job and pass successfully the first 90 days probationary period
All of the above needs to be delivered in a personalised job /career search support system that is available anytime, anywhere and that suits the latest “online /on-demand look up learning style.
Students have to compete with people in the jobs market who already have working experience and Education Professionals need to provide the best possible guidance and help.
