How to Blitz You Apprenticeship Interview

How good is your handshake?

You’ve gotta hate wimpy or bone crusher handshakes. How hard is it to give a decent handshake?

Companies are preparing their 2020 apprenticeship vacancy ads. It will be hard to get to the interview stage. If you DO get there, don’t blow it with a pathetic handshake!

Give the employer the right gut feeling

Employers often employ apprentices on “Gut Feeling”.

The gut feeling started with a good written application. School leavers can get tips on how to write a good resume and cover letter HERE at Youth Central.

How to get an apprenticeship 1

 

Check this video.  It gives tips on how to create a good gut feeling.

Apart from having a decent handshake that says “Hi. Happy to meet you.” you can give a good impression if you dress neatly, smile and show that you have done some research on the company.

  • You can find apprenticeships on sites like Seek.com.au or through a career advisor, a Jobs and Skills Centre or via a pre-apprenticeship.
  • Getting a job as a trades assistant can help you to get a foot in the door.  This gives  industry-ready skills and shows you are interested in the work.
  • Employers like applicants who have done volunteer or part time work as it showed their enthusiasm and meant they would have some work ready skills.
  • Work experience in the field looks good on a resume.
  • Good school results, particularly in metals, maths and engineering are indicators that you might be a good apprentice in a building trade. Taking a folio of photos of projects you have worked on is a good idea.
  • Start working towards your driver’s license as soon as you turn 16.

At the end of the interview say you really want this apprenticeship.

(Know what to say if they ask why!)

Women and girls interested in trades may find the Programmed National Energy Technician Training Scheme worth applying through. Last year they had 38% females in their trades program. Programmed smaller

Australian Apprenticeship Pathways has a range of information on how to get an apprenticeship.

Open Day Worksheets for Years 10, 11 and 12

Three worksheets to guide years 10, 11 or 12s through uni open days. 

Open days start in July. Students who want to go to uni really need to start going to open days in year 10.

These three worksheets build students’ capacity to find the right university path from school.

Year 10 Open Day Worksheet

There is so much to discover and experience at university open days that students need to start going to them in Year 10.  Those students who are most familiar with their university have the best chance of success.

The smart trend is to do your research on social media then go to the coolest exhibitions for the experience and for your selfie. 

Amazed

The Year 10 Open Day Worksheet is short and simple. It will help you to get the most out of your day and help you to find careers to investigate over the next year.

Year 11 Open Day Worksheet

If you went to some open days last year you will know what to expect and can plan your visit to get more out of it.

It is best to go with a family member as they care for you and may find out stuff that you miss.

The Year 11 Open Day Worksheet gives some shortcuts to planning your day so that you have the best time possible as you narrow down your choices for post school university courses.

book-15584_1920

Year 12 Open Day Worksheet

The journey from school is a long one. Finding the right path to take is a good start. 

Discovering your right career won’t come to you in a blinding flash of light. It will come in a whisper. You need to take time to listen. 

The Year 12 Open Day Worksheet will guide those who are thinking of going to uni and who have an idea of what they want to do. 

If you still have no idea what to do when you leave school PLEASE seek advice from a school or Jobs and Skills Centre career advisor or BOTH!! They will help you to clarify what you want to do. Shoes

4 Tips – for Uni Open Days

The open days are brilliant. They are run from late July to late August and all unis bring out their finest toys in their efforts to get you to buy into their courses. 

Tip 1 – Do you want to study humanities OR science?

MyFuture  or the Curtin Campus Quest game can help you to make the decision. Many undergraduate courses are run at all universities in Western Australia so once you know which general direction to take you can narrow down your research.

Campus quest

Tip 2 – You don’t need to go to ALL of the open days 

Once you have decided WHAT to study you just need to decide WHERE you want to study. That is how going to an open day can help you.

Tip 3 Check out unis and courses online

At the Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT)  site you will be able to see what last year’s students thought of the university and course you are considering.

There is a function where you can choose the same course at different unis and see what last year’s students thought.

QILT 2018

Tip 4 Which Uni to Choose?

Finding your “Why” Tim Minchin style

If you are a careers teacher, or a student, or  even if you know someone who is trying to find their “Why” watch Tim Minchin explain that it takes ages and ages and ages to figure out what you love.

There is no magic trick. There is no single flash of light that gives you your purpose.

Your path will take a million baby steps. It will take trying to do what others think you should do, and trying and failing and gradually becoming better at something, and that becomes who you are and what you do.

You can check out Tim’s funny and brilliant short speech HERE.

Screenshot 2019-05-04 10.48.15So, what next?

If you have no idea what to do next you can try the Simon Senek Find Your Why course. Get a copy of the Hear Your Dream Coggle map of sites for other suggestions. Check out the classic Tom Peters Brand You. Talk to an insanely great careers teacher or mentor.

Hear your dream 2

They all help. But they will not provide you with one single moment of clarity.  There is no quick fix.

Finding the authentic you and becoming really good at what you love requires exploring, and trying and consciously and deliberately striving.

3 Steps to Survival in the Future Workforce

You may be feeling that your future is spinning out of control. Breathless reports of the latest discovery that is going to take your job add to the confusion.

The skills you need to survive in the future won’t be too different to ones you needed in the past. 

1. Be Aware

Keep up with changes so that they aren’t overwhelming:

World Economic Forum Newsletter

The World Economic Forum is the leader in thinking about how to cope with the future. They don’t have all the answers but they are the smartest. They meet in Davos each year to talk about issues and they are a conduit to reports and advice.

You can subscribe to their emails here.

Naked Scientist Podcast

I liked the information about emerging jobs in this Naked Scientist podcast on Life in the Year 2100. Go to the 24 minute mark to get to the best bits. Naked scientist

The Third Industrial Revolution Video

For something radical and inspiring go to Jeremy Rivkin’s iconic Third Industrial Revolution.  He paints a bleak picture for a lot of the video but comes up with optimistic positive strategies later.

The New Work Smarts

Any of the reports from the Foundation for Young Australians provide great guidance about where we are heading and what to do. Perhaps the New Work Smarts provides the clearest direction on how to create your work safety net.

2. Build a Strong Network

Your family and friends will be your support framework throughout your life. They will  celebrate your wins and help you when you are down.Bear joke.jpg

A strong network doesn’t just happen. You may be lucky and have a great family. Your school may be a honey pot of fantastic friends. Or you may have to design your own network. Choose carefully.

Don’t waste time on losers. Think about the sorts of friends you want. Don’t suck up to them. Check out who is around.

This Coggle map I named Stand on the Shoulders of Giants. It may give you some ideas on how to consciously and deliberately build a strong network.  Stand on the Shoulders of Giants

3. Be Good at Something

Alan Finkle is Australia’s Chief Scientist. He recommends that you develop “T shaped” skills.

First, be aware that employers look for “T-Shaped” individuals, where the vertical pole of the T represents deep discipline-specific knowledge and the horizontal bar of the T represents 21st Century skills. Restrict your focus to one or the other and you will be limiting your employment options.

Don’t expect to leave school, uni or TAFE and be the expert. Speak to any employers and they will give you examples where the person with the better interpersonal skills got the job over the academic expert. It has never been more important to keep on learning in order to remain the expert.

Skills WEF

So, what next?

I keep researching and networking to keep up to speed with what is happening. It can be overwhelming but careers teachers are keeping their eye on the ball and they are the best ones to go to for information and advice.

Most West Australian high schools subscribe to my newsletter. You can get a complimentary copy to check out.

4 Things Your Careers Teacher Gets Right

1. They Care More 

No other teacher cares as much about what you are going to do when you leave school.

Well, that isn’t strictly true. Teaching isn’t just a job. Mainstream teachers care about what their students plan to do…  but their main responsibility is to get students to learn maths, or physics or geography.

The role of a careers teacher is much more important than that!!!

It is the role of the careers teacher to guide students as they unearth their best possible pathway to follow as they leave school. That is their passion. That is what they care about more than any other teacher.

They have a toolbox of aptitude tests and quizzes and exercises and exploration tasks that will help to guide you to your best possible future.

Hear your dream 2Check this Coggle Map to start your own exploring.

2. They know about university degrees

Not only has your career teacher got first hand experience of being a university student, they have kept up their knowledge.

Every year all of the West Australian universities run professional development programs for careers teachers.

These are wonderful relaxing days where careers teachers are pampered, indulged and spoilt as they are given all of the information they could need to recommend THAT PARTICULAR university to hundreds of prospective students.

Cat

These days out are organised by university careers staff who form a close relationship with school based careers teachers. If ever your teacher doesn’t know something about a course, they just ring their friendly uni based career advisor and get the answer for you.

3. They know about apprenticeships and traineeships

This pathway has sometimes been a bit tricky for careers teachers. While many teachers have vocational qualifications they often do these courses part time so don’t have experience as a full time TAFE student.

Once the mining boom came along employers needed trade and technical skills quickly so TAFE courses came into high demand from school leavers. As the digital economy has pushed up the demand for rapid skills acquisition, long theoretical degree programs have been challenged by short, just in time vocational courses.

Careers teachers struggle to keep up with the massive changes that are taking place across all industries so they hook up students who want an apprenticeship or traineeship with experts in the Australian Apprenticeship Support Network .

Apprenticeships and traineeships

This Coggle map gives an overview of how to get an apprenticeship or traineeship. Get more information at This is How You Get an Apprenticeship in WA.

For students wondering about technical or health para professional careers they now hook them up with careers staff or expert lecturers via the Jobs and Skills Centres which started up last year.

Your careers teachers are the kings and queens of networking. They will know who will know the answer to your question.

4. They know about job application and interview skills

There was a woman at the Skills Expo last year telling everyone they were doing their job applications all wrong. They should buy her special  job application course if they ever wanted to get a job.

That just isn’t true.

Careers teachers know what employers are looking for and give you at least ONE good way of writing a job application and cover letter.

They set up mock interview and do their best to make you anxious so that you know what it is like to go for a real job interview.

This is a career teachers fundamental toolkit. They know this stuff and they teach it.

Despite all of that hard work preparing students to go for jobs, employers complain about bad spelling, poor sentences, lack of care, not answering the questions…… yadda yadda.

Career teachers are able to give you all the knowledge and skills you need to write a good job application and do a fair interview. Learn from your school based careers teacher. You don’t have to pay a fortune.

If you would like to do a job application and interview course check out your local Jobs and Skills Centre. They run free courses and will give you one on one support. You don’t have to be thinking of a TAFE course to go to these Centres.

Go to your careers teacher for free advice as soon as possible

Give your careers teacher every chance to help you to unearth what is possible. Go to see them early and follow their advice.

If you have a strong bond with  a year or VET coordinator, or student services teacher you can go to them. Having great rapport with a wise teacher you trust is important. They can consult the professional careers teacher for information and support as you work towards your goal.

Poor career choices can cost you time and money, but more than that. Poor career choices can leave you feeling lost and depressed.

Take your career exploration and discovery seriously while you are in the familiar, supportive school environment with teachers who care about you.

Discovering your dream career could be your reward.

Every student deserves a great careers teacher

The future success of students as they leap into the turbulent world beyond school can depend entirely on the care, wisdom and knowledge of their careers teacher.

When you leave school there is no bridge to your next chapter. There is no magical path into your ideal future.Math teacher smiling

When you leave school your English (maths, history) teacher has finished their job.  They helped you to get the best education in their field. That’s it. Their work is done.

There is no one on the other side of the school gate to make sure you succeed.

Career Advisors Have Done it All Before

teacher female close upIf you had a good careers teacher you will know what waits for you on the other side of the school gate and you will have a plan.

It is the career advisors job to know what is possible. They have guided hundreds of students to discover what is possible and plan how to get there. They love helping students to unearth their dreams.

Go to see your school career advisor. Tap into their wisdom and knowledge.

Their secret power is that they care about your future.

If you don’t have a career advisor to help you, go to a Jobs and Skills Centre and ask for help. It’s free.

Don’t leave school without a plan

coggle-map-3You may be okay while you are still in a supportive, familiar school environment, but leaving school is risky. Australia is experiencing an epidemic of mental health issues in our young adult population. 

Tap into all of the free support and advice that your school has to offer so that you have a plan with you when you leave school.

Tap into support from your career advisor, pastoral care officer, year coordinator… whoever you get along with. Ask them for help to develop a plan. Keep going until you are happy with your plan.

Getting on the Uni Bus

Many school leavers go to uni because they don’t know what else to do.

Uni career advisors come to school. They tell you how wonderful their uni is. They hold out their hand and say,  “Come with me”.

The TISC application arrives.

Fullscreen capture 28082017 70902 PM.bmp

So you all get on the uni bus.

You can check how much that ride will cost you HERE.

Do your research and work with an expert career advisor before you lock yourself in.

Some go to TAFE

needle-in-a-haystack-1752846_1920There are so many VET courses and variations on courses that finding the ideal one for you is like finding a needle in a haystack.

The new Jobs and Skills Centres aren’t just for VET courses. They deliver a guiding light to students who don’t know what to do when they leave school.

Having a Gap Year

The fear of the unknown often stops students choosing a gap year. Those who do make this choice often choose an organised program that supports them into their future.

Find information on taking a gap year HERE.

Ask your career advisor what gap year program will suit your personality and future plans.

Getting a Job

Statistics 1The only problem with getting a job without planning to do any further study is that you are locking yourself into the lowest paid sector or the workforce.

Get a job, sure but do a Certificate III part time after school to set yourself up for a bigger income and more career choices.

Ask your career advisor what part time courses you can take to improve your future career.
