Finding a job

What's #1 on the list of things the employers we work with say they’re looking for? Attitude. 
We can teach skills. We can’t teach attitude.

Some tips for showing employers you've got a great attitude:

  • 1

    Show you're interested

    Employers want to know you're interested in their industry and their business. So take the time to learn about the company before you approach them.

  • 2

    Be willing to learn

    Show employers that you've mastered new skills in the past - and that you're keen to keep learning.

  • 3

    Show a great work ethic

    Your employer wants to be able to rely on you. Turn up on time, follow instructions and work hard!

  • 4

    Be a team player

    Employers are looking for people who fit in. Show them you're friendly, helpful and reliable.

  • 5

    Volunteer for work experience

    It's a great way to show you're interested in an employer's business and motivated to get ahead. And you may even get a job offer.
