employed.im supports students GCSE Results Day!
Release Date: 22/08/2018 11:05
On Thursday 23rd August, GCSE students will arrive at their school in anticipation of receiving their results.
employed.im will be at each of the Island's 5 high schools to congratuate the students on their accomplishments and support their next steps.
The team will be meeting students for two main reasons:
- To have the opportunity to engage with students, find out more about their future plans and offer guidance about building their CV, searching for opportunities within our platform and giving hem information about the local Apprenticeship Schemes we are associated with. It’s important that students update their profile with us because they initially get registered with a school email address, which they will not have access to once they leave school. We want school leavers to update their profile with a personal email address so that they can continue to benefit from the functions that employed.im have to offer: portable online CV, 100’s of job opportunities, information about apprenticeship schemes.
- We are running a competition, with the support of Manx Telecom, for students to be entered into a draw to win one of the following three prizes: A HTC U11 Life smartphone, a £100 gift voucher for the shop of their choice, a chocolate bouquet! All students have to do to be in with a chance of winning is update their account with a personal email address by 31st August.
The steps for how to update your email address can be found on this flyer:
In the lead up to students receiving their results, Carrie Yates, Work Experience Co-ordinator, mentions “We are so excited about the opportunity to come into school and help students celebrate their GCSE results!
These students first met us two years ago when we introduced them to work experience and helped them to find their placements, with the experience they gained on their placement and any further employment they have had since, we think our local students are really well equipped for their future careers! Whether they venture into the world of work or carry on into further education we are here and available to help them shape their futures.”
