Tips and Advice

  • Think
  • CV and covering letter
  • Do your research
  • Attending an interview

Think carefully about what you want to do before you apply for an apprenticeship. An apprenticeship is a fantastic option to learn while you earn and act as a stepping stone for a successful career. Having a sense of direction is important and our expert recruitment team can help you to make the right choice by providing the best information, advice and guidance at a crucial stage in your development.

When it comes to obtaining employment one of the most important tools for you to have is a good CV. This is often how a business gets the first impression of you and it could mean the difference between getting an interview or an interview being offered to another candidate. A good CV is the perfect opportunity to help you stand out from the crowd and get offered the apprenticeship that you desire.

It is always important to conduct your own research on an employer when preparing for an interview. This will better support you to answer questions and make them relevant to that particular employer. Additionally, it will enable you to ask appropriate questions which shows you are keen and interested in the role.

Once Wise Origin College has matched you to an employer and you attend the interview it is up to you to impress the employer and sell yourself. 

Ensure you think about what you are going to wear in advance, have relevant documents to bring and arrive in good time. An employer will have an impression of you within seconds of greeting you and a bad impression from the start is likely to make it more difficult to get the outcome that you desire. During the interview try to come across as confident, approachable and don’t be afraid to ask questions when the opportunity arises.
