You have just graduated and probably with no work experience and yet its what almost all employers and other job providers put as a requirement when advertising open opportunities not so? True, at least that is what all job seekers face when they finally decide to start their Job hunting trips and for those who haven’t yet gone through it for example those in university, those in college and vocational institutions, you got to read this post since very soon, you will be discovering part of those ways which you can use to build a solid working experience within a small time and which you will use as an answer to the question above.
Martin, who graduated in January 2012 as a social worker shared with me how he had spent to-date a full year without a Job despite his continuous office-to-office moving while placing Job inquiry applications and too applying on the different open opportunities but all in vain. With a Class A degree, the above was one thing Martin never thought of happening since he had a sure deal of getting a Job immediately after graduation and which has never happened for one of the reasons being lack of a hands on experience and which many still take not to be a serious one yet its a core especially to those who are committed to being employed other than employing others.
With many institutions providing job seekers as compared to job creators, its a sign that the number of available jobs automatically is less than the number of candidates who are fit to do the jobs and that is why apart from the entry-level jobs, all other jobs require a working experience which may range from. One year to like three as many employers request. And in order to match with the requirements, that is why fresh graduates need to build up their CV by way of adding experience on them and below are a few ways which can be used when it comes to attaining the above.
Internships – Whether its a free or a paid one, an internships is very important to those who want to get expertize. Many organizations and companies on both a national and international level tend to have open internship opportunities where by those who are recruited work under a qualified supervisor and which in the long run can help towards the above goal. Such opportunities are available on many employment sites and too on the different organization sites like Redcross, NSSF and many others which you can take advantage of.
Induction Courses – These are short courses which are intended to train and introduce employees to employers before they eventually take up posts. Such courses involve placements in the different organizations or even companies for free or a small pay and where by the more you do that, the more you get used and attain the experience which you can later add on your CV.
Community Work – Most communities have experts who are responsible for their growth although, they do encourage community members to participate on the different programmes and projects and many find helpful when it comes to building solid hands on experiences. If you can join such, then that can be helpful as well.
Entry Level Work – Well as most entry level careers don’t tend to pay high, they are so useful when it comes to helping one get used to real work. You can get access to them by contacting the different organizations and institutions and ask their availability.
Voluntarism – No ones doesn’t know what volunteering means. You can join such voluntary programs and acquire the experience you need.
