Trophy Blog #112 – Recently we attended the 4th Selby Jobs Fair, This is the newspaper column I did on the day. – Selby Fairs Fair is being held in the Selby College sports hall for most of the day. LRB Trophies has again agreed to volunteer my time to give out free helpful advice to the 800+ job seekers who will be attending during the day. I have done this at the previous fairs to help people with CV issues or seeking employment. This time last year I offered to look at over 30 different CV’s. In the weeks that followed, I wrote to all the people who handed them in giving tips and guidance. Each CV had something that could be changed or added. The aim is to get that CV to the top of the pile. I’m going to do the same this year and offer basic tips, tweaks and improvements. Some I can spot within a few seconds, such as having a phone number for the recruitment manager to ring, others might be nearly perfect and don’t need much help. The Fair is once again organised by my LBA award business mentor, Nigel Adams MP. He and his team are working with the job centre and also the team at Selby College. Over 40 businesses are working together in the same room at the same time. Job seekers are able to talk to as many people as possible in the same day. This year over 500 jobs are available it will be great to hear of some good news stories from successful people in the future. Last year we had a person offered an interview within ten minutes of arriving and someone else starting their new job the very next day. Companies involved at last years event included Marks & Spencer, John Lewis, Heineken, Drax Power and Shepherd Construction.
