Group Train­ing Aus­tralia (SA) re­veals how to go about get­ting an ap­pren­tice­ship or trainee­ship

The Advertiser - Careers - - Job -

DE­CIDE which ca­reer path is for you.

There are hun­dreds of ca­reers that can be started through an ap­pren­tice­ship or trainee­ship.

Hav­ing a clear di­rec­tion about the path you want to take will help put you ahead of the crowd when assess­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for passionate and com­mit­ted ap­pli­cants.

If you find it too hard to nar­row your choice to just one job, think about the in­dus­try that you would like to work in and go from there.

RE­SEARCH your cho­sen ca­reer. An ap­pren­tice­ship or trainee­ship can take any­where from 12 months to four years to com­plete. It is im­por­tant to know how long it will take and what it will in­volve.

Talk to some­one in the in­dus­try and do some on­line re­search to be sure it is some­thing you can work to­wards. A good way to get first-hand ex­pe­ri­ence in the area is to ar­range to do some work ex­pe­ri­ence.

EN­SURE you are ready to be em­ployed. Up­date your re­sume, prac­tise your in­ter­view skills and re­mem­ber the key rea­sons why this in­dus­try and job is right for you.

Many in­dus­tries will of­fer pre-ap­pren­tice­ship or pre­vo­ca­tional train­ing that can give work­ers key ba­sic skills.
