Kick Start your new career at Weston College event

AN event aimed at linking up job seekers with local employers is being organised by Weston College next Wednesday (Jan 22)
'Kick Start' will be held at Weston-super-Mare's Winter Gardens and will be open for job seekers to visit from 12:00 noon to 2.30pm.
Job seekers from in and around the area are invited to network with employers or companies who may have jobs or apprenticeships available or who would consider offering work experience or have opportunities for volunteering.
In addition to networking, there will be a 'Speed Dating' session, during which employers will conduct five-minute initial interviews with job seekers who can showcase their skills and hopefully impress the employers enough that they want to arrange to meet them again or offer them an opportunity.
Job seekers are advised to come 'dressed to impress' and bring along their CV.
Sue Estcourt, Weston College's Pre-Employment Engagement & Outreach Coordinator, said: "This will be a great opportunity for job seekers to network with a variety of organisations as well as gaining some valuable interview practice.
"Taking part in work experience or volunteering can provide an excellent 'kick start' to any career, giving an opportunity to showcase existing skills as well as an opportunity to develop new skills and get noticed as a potential new employee. It is also a good chance for job seekers to consider working within different vocational areas."
