JOBSEEKERS GIVEN CAREER BOOST
An innovative course run by City of Wolverhampton College has bought Christmas cheer to jobseekers, after giving them a career boost.
A total of 14 students took part in the pre-recruitment retail course, run in partnership with Jobcentre Plus, to help them gain the skills needed to secure work over the festive season.
The course covered interview techniques, CV writing and customer service skills.
At the end of the programme students received help in applying for Christmas jobs at HMV, Superdrug and H Samuel.
Robert Ball, aged 19, said: “This course has prepared me for what to expect when working in retail and how to deal with customers, as well has advice on the interview process.
“The tutors on the course have been very supportive and considerate and I definitely feel better prepared to apply for roles now.”
