Young aston student grabs the job, with support and guidance from the Jobshop team!
Job Shop- Aston University
I am student currently studying at Aston University.I have been successfull in gaining a part time job from the help of the job shop located in the Aston Student Guild. Special thanks to the manager Cathy who very much helped me gain a successful part time job.
I previously found it very hard to get a part time job. Nearly every interview I went to had no as an answer. I have been looking for a part time job for about a year. At an interview I felt as I was intimidated and very nervous. All job applications I filled gave me no replies. I never gave up hope and keep on trying to find a part time job.
Job Shop- What I think- Views?
Since I have been at Aston, I have gone to the job shop for advice on getting a job. I feel as the job shop is a good place to find a job. Every job is regularly updated to the notice boards, the notice boards displaying jobs are clear to read. Also the job shop staffs are very helpful and friendly. The manager Cathy is very helpful and is a strong contributor. They are here to help you they go the extra mile to gain your satisfaction. The job shop helps you get the job you want as an individual. They meet certain job requirements what a student might have. They offer CV appointments, interview techniques appointments and help you get the job you always would want. They offer vacation work, part time work, summer time work, voluntary work. Aston job shop is a great place to go to if you are looking for a job.
My Experience at the Job Shop
I have been coming to the job shop regularly to find part time work. I feel as if the job shop is helpful and friendly. I arranged several appointments with the job shop. Cathy helped me to create a successful CV. The first appointment I had booked was a CV update appointment that takes only 20 mins. In this appointment I learned the flaws of my CV and I was told that a CV has to show you as an individual, your success. On my CV I updated it completely; it was looking more professional and gaining the eyes of employers.
Then later that week there was a job that had come up in the job shop as a data inputted. I went to Cathy and asked here for the details. I was given the details and also help and advice on how to write a cover letter. Later then I applied for the data inputted job. I was successfully arranged for an interview for the job. From the help from the job shop, they made the CV more profffesional and better.
Then I went to Cathy and arranged an appointment on interview techniques. Cathy was very helpful. She told me the do's and don’ts of interviews; we did some role play for the interview. We practised questions. I was told tips, do's, and don’ts of an interview. From the help of Cathy going through the interview techniques I feel more open, and I felt as I was selling my self to a company. Previously I felt it hard going through the stages of an interview.
Later that week after the interview, I got a phone call and I was offered the job as a data inputted. This was because of all the help from the job shop. They helped me create a successful CV, go through interview techniques, and helped with job success. They helped me gain and a job that I like as a student. They have helped me gain success in the world of work. Without the help of Cathy and all the job shop staff I would have not found a job. I would like to say a thank you.
