Career Advice During Uncertain Times


We would like to share with you our top 5 tips for getting one step ahead in your career, even during uncertain times.


Tip #1 - Use The Jobs Portal and The Careers Portal

The Careers Portal offers learnerships, apprenticeships, internships and many other things to keep matriculants and university students well equipped and informed. The Jobs Portal offers a variety of jobs from industry leaders and signed up members receive the latest vacancies straight to their inbox every week.

Both of our websites are completely free to use, with tips on how to improve your CV giving you personalised career advice and connects you to global reputable brands.

Our goal is to give opportunities to ambitious students from all backgrounds and to make opportunities easily accessible. 

Tip #2 - Hobbies

Everyone knows that doing extracurricular activities is a really good way to de-stress but it's also what's going to set you apart from other applicants. Don't just be idle but strive to be the
best at what you do, whether it is part-taking in competitions that you can then put on your CV or whether it's applying for management or roles within that society that you belong to, do your best. 

Your CV will set you apart but also show that you have got more to you. 

Tip #3 - Gain Experience

Try to gain as much experience as possible in multiple fields. If you're unsure of what you want to do, retail is a really good place to start because there are plenty of jobs available and it's pretty structured.

Our advice is just to search for as many opportunities as possible and sign up to as many opportunities as possible whether that's through your school's career office or going straight to a
company that you want to work with. Then there is also volunteering. 

The experience you gain is not just really good for your CV but also for your own understanding and knowledge.

Tip #4 - Master The Power Of Networking

During Covid-19, networking might prove to be a slight challenge, however it is not impossible.

What we have picked up from a lot of business networking events is the importance of linkedIn especially for new students who want to gain their contacts after any event. Network and connect with indusry leaders on LinkedIn, you will see the benefit of this.

Tip #5 - Be Proactive

Just be as proactive as possible and read as much as possible. When it comes to business there are endless reading lists and there are so much expertise and knowledge that one can learn.

Preparation is key so being proactive is pretty crucial.
