Jobs and Careers Autumn 2017 - 7
ED'S LET TER
YOUR IDEAL ROLE COULD BE JUST AROUND THE CORNER
o, you're looking for a new job,
a new career? Perhaps you're
undecided about the field you
want to go into and could do
with some information to point you in the
right direction. If that's the case, we cover
all sorts of options you can consider, from
finance, banking and hospitality to
technology, aviation and many more.
Our guest editor, James Caan, sets you
on the right track with his tips on why it's
so important to follow your passion when choosing a career (page 42),
how to bag your dream job in 10 steps (page 30) and what you should
be thinking about when it comes to the interview (page 54) - and it
isn't whether you've polished your shoes that morning...
Elsewhere in this issue we take an indepth look at working in the
education sector (page 119). We talk to three teachers in very
different settings about why they love their jobs, profile the teaching
roles available in further and higher education, and explain which
further-education courses can help you land the job you want.
If you'd like to earn as you learn, you'll be glad to hear that it's a
boom time for apprenticeships, with the government investing
money into creating roles in a wide range of industries. You can find
out more about what's on offer and how to make yourself stand out
from other applicants in our feature on page 68.
Employment is the highest it has been for a decade, so if you
do your research, prepare yourself well for interviews and are
enthusiastic about the field to which you're applying, there is
definitely a job out there with your name on it...
We wish you the best of luck,
