It's some-thing I feel pretty strongly about I beleave its the one way you can stand out from the crowd positivily.
I rremember hearing on news talk about getting jobs and interveiws I can't remember who the guys name is. But he said some really true things..
About Irish people as hole in regards to selling them selves that its looked down on or we as a nation don't do it enough and really project self beleif in to things like a covering letter and that genrally said that we tend to stick to a very robotic, manor.
I thaught that was some of the best advise I've ever heard as it made me see that to apply to jobs you really have to make an effot. And show that you have the Intelegence, to relate to the job through past experence.
The other day, I receaved a letter for a collage course I'm applying for saying that I had to come in for a comprehension test... as I'm a mature student. I'm pretty anxed up about it, not to mention I can barely use a pen and worse still Im dyslexic, Ive grown so used to the keyboard that writing, with a pen or pencil just turns into the worst parinoia/anxirty/onfussion and leads me down a not so nice experence. And just totally loose it.
Its left me thinking that maybe, I should adress the collage with a letter syaing why I really want to do the course and why ive chosen it and give some solid back ground proof to why I beleave I can do the course pass and gain employment. it isnt required but I feel uneasy about doing this comprehension test. I dont see why it wouldnt help tip the ballance in my favour some what and into todays climate with the amount of unemployed people applying for collage its dog eat dog allmost...
But its also left me wondering, if you really wanted somthing and beleaved that you could ace it. Would you fight that little bit harder. Knowing full well youve got bucket loads of experence with in the industry ?
Itd be great for some other opinions, thanks..
