Skill Pages

SKILL PAGES (Click to visit)

Just like LinkedIn, Skill Pages is a handy tool for anyone who wants to give their career a little kick start, or a boost. You fill out your information, as well as your job history, education and so on, as well as listing your main 5 skills. When you have listed them, you can add details about what you have done with these skills. (IE: Previous jobs, or studies.)

This is obviously great to have on record for future employers to see, but the great thing about Skill Pages is that there are job opportunities posted and they are free to apply for. All you need to do is click on 'apply' and list why you think you would be a good candidate for the job, as well as choosing the skill page relevant to the application. (IE: You added 'Artist' as one of your skills, applied for an artist job and so therefore you list your Artist Skill Page.)

Why apply for jobs on there? Well, admittedly, some are unpaid positions, but these opportunities look great on your CV. And, let's face it, a resume boost is always a good thing and it shows that you are willing to work, even for free. Initiative is something very valuable to employers and it goes a long way.

Another good thing is, you do not need to be employed, as they accept students too! So join up and you never know... You could kick start your dream job sooner than you think.
