Ichose an Apprenticeship as I thought that I would prove myself much more in a working environment than an academic one, which doesn’t mean I am not academic just that this is how I prefer to showcase my knowledge.
I found using GetMyFirstJob extremely easy, I just signed up, logging my details and my qualifications along with the type of job role that I was looking for and within only a week I had my first interview sorted. It was my only interview as I got the job, I was extremely impressed with how easy it was and I felt like everything was done really well and professionally.
I've always wanted to be successful and I feel that starting from the bottom and working my way up is the best option for me!
I have always wanted to be successful and I feel that starting from the bottom and working my way up is the best option for me! I have to manage the office and pretty much everything that goes on. My duties include making sure payments are carried out, speaking to clients and putting together reports that are going out to our clients. It makes me feel that I am doing something worthwhile and actually helping to make a difference in the workplace. My progression within the company has been huge and I am personally impressed about how fast I am progressing during my course.
I would definitely recommend an Apprenticeship; it’s possibly the best thing available for people that don’t necessarily want to continue in an academic place, because you’re learning while working and getting paid for it! You get a good knowledge of real working life, although I have only been in this placement for just under a month I feel that I have learnt 10x more in my course than I did in a year of education!
