Many people who have been laid off from work, do not take the right steps in order to gain employment. They may go to the job centre and look for available work, but they end up giving up since they can't find anything they qualify for. To help laid off workers get their foot in the door, they need to take some steps to help themselves.
They can go to www.ukjobsguide.co.uk to find a job centre in their city, if they don't already know. There is an interactive map that will show them where to find the job centre. Underneath the map, will be a list of openings. The person can get an idea of what types of jobs are available and if he or she would need to go back to school.
The job centre agent may tell you that in order to get employment, you may need to go back to school. Many laid off workers are able to go back to school for free. A person can choose to go to a university or vocational school. A person may have more luck going to a vocational school since they train you for a career. The job centre agent will give you the steps needed to apply for school, such as obtaining transcripts. Also, if you will need transportation, it may be provided. (more...)
