Top 5 Tips for gaining employment

1. Do not get your mum to ask about work for you and especially don’t bring them to a job interview!


2. Ask yourself; “Do I want to work?” Don’t waste your or the employer’s time if you will not be available for shifts due to personal commitments like weekend sport.


3. Be willing to show initiative – your genuine desire to work will be noticed and remembered.


4. Do not show up for an interview in ripped jeans or shabby clothing. This may not necessarily reflect your ability to do a job but appearance will be taken into consideration.


5. Remember that references and social media accounts like Facebook will be checked. Take this into account and potentially make changes before applying for a job.
