LOOKING FOR WORK?

 

There are several ways of looking for job vacancies. The important thing is to start the process early and not leave it until you’ve taken your exams.
Local (and national) newspapers – in Norfolk, the Eastern Daily Press (EDP) advertises job vacancies in its Thursday edition. If you don’t get the paper at home, it is available in the School Library, and you can browse its jobs section online.
Websites – there are many websites which advertise vacancies. In Norfolk, the main website for young people is www.helpyouchoose.org and job/apprenticeship vacancies are advertised in the ‘Jobs’ section. There is also a link to the national apprenticeship website. It’s also a good idea to look on company websites as vacancies are often advertised there. Keep checking these websites regularly, as vacancies are put on them as they appear.
Networking – many job vacancies are never advertised. Remember to use any contacts that you have to help you search for work. This could include members of your family, family friends, neighbours and people you met on work experience.
