According to this Forbes post, apprenticeships are on the rise, and rightly so. These can be a valuable opportunity for new professionals. Why? Well, we believe these offer a competitive advantage:



"Apprenticeships involve actual hands-on skill application, boosting experience and exposure in the industry. When competing for #employment in a tough #job market, this real-time learning and actual experience can set a professional apart from competitors who only possess theory-based education or classroom learning."

How you present yourself on your #resume, during the #interview, and on the #job, can help sway prospective employers' perceptions about age. To start, a strong resume is required to get your ‘foot in the door’.

#Jobseekers, are you feeling pressured to write your #resume according to 'rules'? Here's why those rules might not apply:

Adrienne Tom, CERM, MCRS on LinkedIn: "#Jobseekers often feel that they *have to* or *must* write their #resume a certain way. Why? Because they read ‘rules’ online… or a friend said so… ❓ First, qualify advice carefully. Second, there are no such things as resume rules – just best practices and guidelines. Today, writing a resume doesn’t require a standardized approach. Here’s why: ✅ You are unique. Therefore, your resume must be, too. No two job seekers are alike. Each comes to the table with unique experiences and a select arsenal of skills and expertise. Write your resume with your audience top of mind. And if the audience changes, your resume should to. ✅ Solid substance trumps page length. What works best: one page, two, three? The answer is whatever length is appropriate to get key content across. Question reasoning before conforming. Think quality of content versus quantity. Distill details down to what matters most, and let value dictate length. ✅ Different application avenues call for different types of applications. There are diverse ways modern job seekers search for, and apply for, jobs. To ensure a resume is easily reviewed and approved by *both* people and computer screeners, unique strategies are required. What else am I missing? "

The old adage “it’s not what you know but who you know” continues to remain very relevant in modern #hiring practices. The best way to get noticed, and get hired, is by direct referral and #networking.

If you have someone who can vouch for you ‘on the inside’ – your chances of getting #interviewed drastically improve. And if you are selected for an interview, the candidate pool is a lot less competitive – so your chances of getting hired also goes up.

How exactly can you get referred for a job? Find out: https://lnkd.in/g7JypQQ
