GETTING A JOB AND GETTING AHEAD HAS CHANGED SINCE YOU LEFT SCHOOL
A job for life doesn’t exist any more
The idea that you left school at 16 on a Friday and had a job for life on the Monday is something consigned to the history books
Crucially – the biggest cultural change of the past 15 years has happened with Social Media
What was once uttered and forgotten about is now online for the world to see and your life can be impacted massively in either a positive or negative way
Your Personal Brand and Your Online Reputation are Your Currency!!!
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THE FOLLOWING PHRASES BEFORE?
“It’s not what you know, it’s who you know”
“You are the average of the 5 people you spend most time with”
“70% of employers screen candidates’ social media accounts”
“More than half of employers (54%) choose not to hire candidates based on things they find on social media pages”
IN 2019 YOUR PERSONAL BRAND AND SOCIAL MEDIA HAS NEVER BEEN MORE IMPORTANT
Here are some recent stats from UCAS in 2018
* In England, a record 27.9% of the 18 year old population have been accepted through UCAS
* A total of 411,860 have been placed on an undergraduate course
We know of course that employees aren’t just looking for qualifications
* The government plans to create 3 million apprenticeships by 2020
What makes you stand out in the market place in 2019 is
* Your Network
* Your Online Reputation
* What you do as well as your qualifications
* Everyone has a personal brand whether they like or not
* A personal brand is something live and breathe every day
* Your personal brand is amplified by social media
* You see your network more online than you do face 2 face
* People buy from People – and always have
YOUR CHILD’S FUTURE IS TOO IMPORTANT TO BE LEFT TO CHANCE
