Unlocking JOBS

unlockingjobs.com

The aim of Unlocking Jobs is to create a website that provides simple jargon-free explanations of how employers screen job applications, and how you can write your CV and application to maximize the chances that you will get interviews.

Many young people feel that the job application process is like a maze. The terminology used in job descriptions is baffling and often misleading, designed to tick boxes for the employer rather than provide useful information for candidates.

If the job candidate has no real idea of what the work actually involves, many just take a punt and use stock phrases that they have been told to use, often by a friend or a well-meaning relative. This advice is often wide of the mark.

The website is just starting off, so we will be doing a lot of tweaking and remodelling in the weeks ahead. But the aim is simple. Please email if you think you can help in some way, or if you want to make suggestions.
