Its been a busy few weeks for us at future-talent.com! Its almost 5 months to the day since we launched and we're happy to report the site is growing fast! We have some fantastic companies advertising their opportunities with us and lots of new young people registering every day. We're happy to see so many people interested in the apprenticeships, jobs and courses we have on offer! Our main focus at the moment is to make sure as many school and college leavers know about our site as possible. Its a one stop shop to find so many different types of opportunities- and with unemployment amongst young people such a big problem at the moment, we want our site to make a difference and help those who want to find great jobs and put themselves out there. Workshop with Nacro We recently went down to one of the Nacro centres in Battersea to talk to some of the students there about what kind of work they were looking for. It was great to hear their views on the working world, the challenges they've faced, what they are passionate about and what they want to do in the future. For us, its great to hear that Simon was interested in getting into creative media, and we were able to show him some relevant roles on the site and help him apply for them. We gave all the students a quick tutorial on how to use the future-talent.com site, and most importantly, by the time we left all the students were busy applying for jobs. It was a great start for our workshop series and we are looking forward to doing more in the future!
Job Fairs across LondonWe've also been busy popping along to events around London, it gives us a great chance to talk to lots of young people who aren't sure what they want to do when they finish their GCSEs or ALevels. We have iPads at the ready to register people as they come by, if they're looking for apprenticeships, jobs or courses. There's so much choice out there, and making decisions starts with knowing what your options are. The great thing about future-talent.com is that it explains all the different possibilities simply, but most importantly shows you real vacancies in all those areas that you can apply for today. Once you know what you want, its all there just waiting for you! Thanks to everyone who has helped our site grow so quickly, please continue to spread the word and we'll make sure we keep making our service better and better for you :)
