How to Apply for Learnerships
- When you respond to a recruitment advert make sure you have checked the closing date or you’re wasting your time. Most recruiters receiving your applications are the uptight boring types who won’t even open your email / read your fax etc.
- If it’s past the due date. If you see that it’s less than 1 month after the due date, call them up anyway. Explain that you’re interested and wanted to know if you could be short listed in case people drop out. It’s a long shot but at least it shows you’re determined and creative.
- When you write a cover letter or send an email asking about opportunities, DO A SPELL CHECK! Coz rytin sms styl is the same as kissing someone with bad breath. If you want to be selected by an adult – be an adult YOURSELF and communicate correctly.
When you’re President Dic’tator you can change the rules.
- Your CV should be 1 page – your personal details (ID, address, age etc should take up less than 1/4 of your page.) Include details about your skills, interests, do you have any hobbies related to the program you’re applying for? What have you achieved? Distinctions, were you a class captain or prefect, sports achiever etc?
- Your CV must make you sound like someone actively interested in the world and someone who has interests. If all you do is watch soapies all day, it’s time to get real! But if you watch TV in order to post reviews online, write a blog, be critical etc – then you could be hot stuff.
- Just make yourself sound useful ok…! Good luck!!
