Why Are You Going To Uni?

Why Are You Going To Uni?

Posted: 24th of April 2015 by Tom Clover

For many A-level students the transition between 6th form college and university seems like a natural progression, almost as if it is the ‘expected’ route. It is easy to fall into this mind-set, especially if you have always had an idea of how your academic life would work out – from primary school to GCSE and right through to your A-levels. This sense of inevitability of going to university can be reinforced by your teachers and parents, making it very difficult to actually work out exactly why you are going to university.

Are You Missing Out On Essential Skills For Your Future?

Are You Missing Out On Essential Skills For Your Future?

Posted: 23rd of April 2015 by Tom Clover

A recent report conducted by LifeSkills has revealed that nearly half of young people feel that they are not being taught the essential skills that businesses will be looking for in the future. A survey of 2,000 young people and their parents asked which skills they believed would be most important to them in the next ten years, and if they were being taught them. The survey also asked businesses which skills they believed would be required for young people in the workplace over the next ten years, and compared the results. So, the question is which skills were seen as important, and are you being taught them?

5 Questions To Ask At Your Job Interview

5 Questions To Ask At Your Job Interview

Posted: 21st of April 2015 by Tom Clover

Job interviews are stressful at the best of times – so unless you are prepared you can easily get caught out when asked if you have any questions at the end. Of course, you want to come across as thoughtful and intelligent, you want the interviewer to think you have really considered the job you are applying for, and you need to have done some research about the company before you got to the interview. Ideally, you will have been paying close attention during the interview too, so that you could come up with a couple of really good, pertinent questions for the inevitable ‘have you got any questions’ moment. Then again, you may have been doing all you could not to collapse from the stress of it all, and may not be as on-the-ball as you might hope. So, here we present 5 go-to questions to ask at the end of (pretty much) any interview:

Get Your Point Across – Properly

Get Your Point Across – Properly

Posted: 20th of April 2015 by Tom Clover

There is a difference between being rude and being assertive. Being assertive is a great skill to learn as it allows you to know and express what you feel and need. Of course, to do this successfully, without tipping over into rudeness, you need to balance your needs with being polite and sensitive to those of others. Assertiveness comes somewhere between being pushy or rude and being passive or a walk-over. In order to understand how to be assertive, it is worth knowing what being overly passive or aggressive is like.

Job Dissatisfaction? Work / Life Balance

Job Dissatisfaction? Work / Life Balance

Posted: 17th of April 2015 by Tom Clover

With a recent report saying that nearly a quarter of all professionals are dissatisfied with their work / life balance it seems that there is more to having a job than just getting employed. Despite the fact that the employment rates hit a record high at the end of 2014, it seems that too many people are not happy with their current jobs.
