How to get a job with out any experience

How to get a job with out any experience 

The best way to get a job If your struggling to find a job is to get into internships and apprenticeships starting  your career with internships are great ways to gain that much-needed experience. Working under internships leads to first-hand knowledge of a job or organisation. They're also incredibly useful for building a network of contacts. This can sometimes lead to permanent employment.

ROWANNA  SMITH says " 'Applying for an internship or apprenticeship in your final year or after you've graduated can be a really effective way of experiencing what a particular industry or job would be like.'

Internship on other hand is the greatest  asset for any individual and help on your CV and can make you stand out from the crowd. The key to getting a job is applying for as many jobs as you can in every single sector related  to your field .

On an apprenticeship, you'll be employed to do a real job while studying for a formal qualification. You'll sign a contract with your employer who then trains you in a specific profession. Apprenticeships are a long-term agreement and can take from one to four years to complete. The majority of apprentices are guaranteed a job on completion of their programme.

Start volunteering

Volunteering to any field is more easy
than an internship and that helps  your
Chances of increas in getting a job especially if you have no relevant experience.Employer's value volunteering experience as it shows commitment, initiative and a strong work ethic - after all, you're working for free.

Participating in these type of activities
also provides a range experience  sought-after transferable skills, such as team work, confidence, time management, flexibility, communication and organisation.However, any volunteering experience will bolster your CV and give you real life examples to mention at interview.

Build your connection  

When you're starting out with no experience, who you know can be just as important as what you know. A recommendation to an employer from a personal contact can go a long way. But how do you build up a network of contacts if you're struggling to enter the world of work?

In reality, you have more connections than you think. 'Draw yourself a number of rings, like an archery target,' advises Rowanna. 'Identify people in the centre that are close family and friends, the next ring could be students on your course, further out might be contacts from clubs and societies etc.' After completing this activity you'll be surprised at the number of contacts you already have.

When trying to expand your network, make sure you utilise opportunities while at university. Attend careers fairs, recruitment events and employer talks or lectures. Visit your university careers service to see if they can put you in touch with employers in your area of interest.

'It's important to think about any extracurricular activities that are going to help you stand out from the crowd,' advises Darius Matusiak, associate director at recruitment consultancy Macildowie.

Social media is also a really effective way of building and maintaining your professional network. Being present on sites such as Twitter and LinkedIn, and following and connecting with companies and individuals in your chosen field can yield impressive results. It's not unheard of for students and graduates to be offered a job solely off the back of their social media profile

Emphasise the skills you have
When it comes to the application stage, to ensure that your CV doesn't look empty, work experience, internships and volunteering are essential.

Focus your CV on the skills you do have, rather than the ones you don't. Analyse the job description and list all the skills and personal qualities that make you a good fit for the job. Be sure to emphasise soft and transferable skills such as communication, leadership ability, team working and attention to detail.

However, if you lack direct experience in your chosen field, don't gloss over the fact; instead use it to demonstrate your passion and motivation to learn. Highlight examples of your dedication and commitment to learning gained through volunteering work, internships or work shadowing.
