Careers advice step 1: Searching for a job

Before you decide which area of IT you want to find a career in, we recommend you research different roles. Every role has strengths and weaknesses, long term opportunities and each requires a different skill set.
At NowSkills we offer a range of digital apprenticeships in Digital Marketing, Software Development, and Networking, Data Analyst, Business Analyst and much more. 
Each apprenticeship role is different, so review our course overviews and read carefully the different tasks within each job role. Also, have a look at job boards such as Total Jobs, Reed and Monster to gain an idea of how much you could be earning after your apprenticeship.
Careers advice step 2: Apply and think smart
Once you’ve chosen your digital apprenticeship, you now need to work on presenting yourself in the best possible way. When you register with us and if you are eligible for an apprenticeship, one of our friendly recruitment advisers will telephone you to discuss your career aspirations, provide guidance where necessary and begin the application process.

If you want to progress with your application after having discussed your career aspirations with us, we will send you an application form.

The application form is very important, it will end up on the desk of an employer and they will decide if they want to interview based on what you put in your application.

Therefore, once you’ve completed your application form, check it once and then check it again. 

Read your own application as if you were the employer. Would you invite yourself for interview?

Apprentices who are offered the most interviews with leading apprentice employers have stronger application forms that they have put time and effort into.

Make your application form the best it can be:

  • Check your grammar
  • Check your spelling
  • Include photos of certificates or award
  • Your previous work experience
  • Examples of your work where possible
  • An enthusiastic and ambitious tone
Careers advice step 3: Interview Preparation
You may have had experience attending interviews before, or it may be your first time. Either way, we always provide advice and guidance to new apprentices.
Interview preparation is key, you may think you’ll be fine and choose to “wing it”, but employers will know and if you fail to prepare, you are preparing to fail.

At NowSkills, we schedule interview preparation sessions with all of our learners who are going for interview. Remember, we’re here to support you on your apprenticeship journey.
