by Reed Learning

Course overview

Welcome to Get work ready, a course that contains everything you need to search, apply and interview for your first job.

In this course we will guide you through how to search for jobs online, the different types of contracts and what they mean, as well as how to set up your profile and CV to make sure recruiters can find you!

You will also get a step-by-step guide on how to write, design, review and tailor your CV and cover letter, as well as lots of tips, resources and templates to make sure your CV and cover letters are the best they can be. We will give you advice on filling in application forms efficiently and effectively!

Finally, we will go through everything you need to prepare for a job interview, from how to prepare for an interview to how to deal with interview rejection if things don’t go so well. We also have plenty of resources to support you through the interview process, including a pre-interview checklist, an interview skills booklet and mindfulness exercises to help you get ready on the day.

As part of the course, you will also get a unique opportunity to practise what you’ve learnt in a two part mock interview with our CEO James Reed. This interview experience has been developed using a recruitment technology that is currently used to place people into thousands of jobs across the world from hospitality to air travel. The first round is a text based interview, powered by AI, where you will answer the questions into a chat. Once you’ve completed the interview AI will analyse your responses and give you a personalised insight report around how you came across and where you may look to grow in the future. In the second round video interview, you will get to reflect on how you come across on camera, from your body language to tone of voice, preparing you for any future virtual or in person interviews.
