Help for advisers

You can use Job Jumpstart to help young people in four different ways…

Dream a little

It's up to you to figure out what you want and what you are interested in. Picking a career to aspire to or a course that interests you is just the start of it. You'll also need to figure out what type of workplace and employer you like and what kind of pay and conditions you expect.

Be practical

It's great to strive for ambitious career goals, provided you have the drive and motivation to adjust your goals when you face setbacks. Make informed career choices, be realistic and take the work opportunities available to you here and now.

Make it happen

You need your own career and job search strategy. The best strategy for you will be built on your strengths. Networking? Writing job applications? Working? Don't leave your career and employment happiness to chance. Work on your skills and strengths and be open to advice.

On the job

Every job is an opportunity to earn some money, get work experience and develop your skills. Make the most of your work opportunities by knowing your work rights and responsibilities and building good relationships with your employer and work mates.
