Summer is officially over, as today (22 September) marks the first day of the Autumn season! It’s time to start thinking about the next step in your education and/or career and what you might like to do next. With that in mind, today we wanted to let you know about all of the great supportive services that we can offer you here at AIM to help you make those big decisions.
- 1.CV and Cover Letter Guidance
When applying for an apprenticeship, you’ll need to send the company a CV so they can get to know a bit about you. If you don’t have a CV yet – don’t panic! On our website you can use the CV Builder to create a new one from scratch. Simply enter your details in the boxes provided and click submit and you’ve got yourself a CV up to industry standards.
You’ll also need to send the company a Cover Letter that outlines why you think you’re perfect for the role that you’re interested in. When you’ve found a vacancy on our website, simply scroll down to the bottom of the page where you’ll find a space to create a Cover Letter.
Once you’ve created both of these documents, you can send them to one of our AIM Advisors to check over. They’ll offer you advice and guidance on how you can improve them to ensure you really wow the company you’re applying to.
- 2.Interview Preparation
Once you’ve been offered an interview, we’ll help you with every step of the preparation to make sure you perform the best you can. We’ll give you guidance on what possible questions may be and how best to tackle them and we’ll even plan your journey there for you to make sure you know exactly where you need to be and when.
- 3.Phone and Online Chat Support
Our AIM Advisors are available via phone or our Online Chat feature. They can help you to create an account, find a vacancy that fits your interests and give you hints and tips on both the application and interview processes.
- 4.Vacancies You’re Interested In
When you are creating your profile here, you have the option to select the industries that you’re interested in working in. This means that when we get a new vacancy available in those areas, we can send it straight through to you so you can be the first to apply.
- 5.Online Search Tool
You can use our online search feature here to find the ideal apprenticeship that interests you and suits your needs! The tool allows you to search by location and/or industry and once you’ve found something that you like, an AIM Advisor will help you to complete your application to give you the best chance possible.
