Young People and Career
Back in March and April 2021, we worked with very worthwhile organisations. These organisations were Inspiring the Future, Barking and Dagenham College, and I am Inspired.
Inspiring the Future works with young people from all over the world supporting them with their career and future. In March and April, we had the chance to participate in two Zoom sections (for the UK Inspiring the Future and Ghana Inspiring the Future). We got the opportunity to interact and be inspired by both the young people and other professionals. It was a great learning and finding out about different sectors and industries.
We had the pleasure to speak to students from Barking and Dagenham College during career week. Barking and Dagenham College is based in East London (UK) and caters to students from 16 years old and above. They offer a wide range of courses from level 1 to level 4 (foundation degree/professional qualification).
I Am Inspired is a great organisation to support. This organisation work with, support and encourages young people to go after their goals and dreams. They work with young people to get on to different career paths, including starting their own business. We must say that these young people (including 10, 11+ years old) incredible and very inspiring to both their peers and adult alike.

How To Have A Successful Job Interview
Sorry about the delay in the employment series. A lot was happening behind the scene both professionally and personally. This is the only time we will post outside of Mondays so that this series is out within the time frame we set. Enjoy.
Some suggestions of interview questions to ask:
Can you give a brief break down of the day to day activities of my role?
Are there any opportunities for growth, training and progression in my role or within the company?
Can you tell me more about the team I’ll be working in?
What is the turnover of staff within the company or within my role?
What are the challenges do you expect an employee to face in this position?
How will you measure the post holder success?
What do you expect the post holder to achieve in their first 6 months to a year?
Can you describe the working culture?
