At TheEmployable, we have set ourselves the mission of helping everyone to realise their employment potential and have work lives that are as fulfilled and rewarding as possible.
Whether it’s through CV advice, employment law, career guides, interview tips, or the latest jobs related news, we always put our best foot forward in making sure that you are up to speed and as well prepared as you can possibly be.
We know that we are not alone is this mission; across the UK and beyond there is a whole army of folks like us, who are dedicating themselves to making the process of searching and applying for jobs a little bit less daunting and whole lot more accessible.
In recognition of these people and the great work that they do we have put together this short list; 4 great websites for job seekers.
These guys offer a no frills, expansive resource of tips and advice aimed at students and recent graduates; but we reckon their collection is equally suitable for people who are a bit further along in their career. They of course cover all the bases with regards to CVs, interviews, application forms etc. but they also have some rather handy industry overviews which can help give you a better idea of the sectors in which you hope to work. They also have a job board and are a great source of information of a broad range of training opportunities.
Career Shifters is dedicated to providing inspiration and a proven, step-by-step approach to making a career move into a job that you really enjoy. They take a very people centric approach to the process of changing career, covering things like motivation and mindset, as well as more practical tips and advice. There are also loads of real life case studies to inspire the go-getter in you. Whether you’re in the mood for a quick 5 point easy to digest topic synopsis, or a full on examination of your career prospects, you won’t regret a little visit to Career Shifters.
If you have ever thought about a creative career, then a little trip to Creative Choices might just be enough to sway you! Their core aims are to make sure young people are given the opportunity to work and learn in the creative industries, but also to ensure that employers can benefit from a highly skilled workforce and that the UK’s creative industries continue to thrive and expand. Their colourful and informal interface makes a welcome change from the typical corporate feel of many employment sites.
A really comprehensive career resource delivered in a characteristically adept style. Like us, they take a commonsense approach to their work delivering tips and advice on all the major aspects of searching and applying for jobs. They have regular expert guest contributors and can always be counted upon for great analysis of all the latest employment related news. A firm favourite over here at TheEmployable HQ.
They are an indispensable resource for anyone who works, or is thinking of working within a creative role, offering tips and advice as well as real world practical advice on things like funding, courses, apprenticeship opportunities and more.
