How To Get A Job With No Experience

Finding a job isn't easy in today's world. In fact, there are people whom may feel that they have no hope out there due to having no experience. Here are a few ways in which you can find a job with no or little experience: 

1) Start Volunteering

Volunteering positions are more easier to find compared to other internships. Although it's unpaid, you'll benefit from it in terms of developing new skills. This kind of experience provides a range of transferable skills such as, team working skills, time management skills, communicational skills, organisational skills etc. Not only will you gain these skills, but it will also help build up your CV and give you a real life scenarios to mention at interviews. 

2) Emphasise the personal skills you have

Sometimes the personal skills you have gained through experiences such as in education, working in teams for group projects, sport clubs you participate in can also help you build up your CV. It's always best to firstly analyse the job description, then to focus on the personal qualities and skills you have that make you a good fit for the job. For example, playing football in your local team, there are a variety of skills you gain or use whilst playing on a Sunday morning. Communicational skills (when to pass the ball and to whom), leadership skills (team captain). Overall, make sure to emphasise on other areas, these will help portray you as a more rounded individual. 

3) Online Course 

If you're struggling with unemployment, doing an online course would be a healthy alternative. It may be difficult to get practical work experience so doing an online course would guarantee you with a qualification to ensure that you are qualified for the role that you would like to apply for. You will learn all of the fundamentals to succeed in your particular role and although you won't be getting hands on experience, it will leave you with all the tools to stand out in your next interview. 

4) Sell Yourself at Interviews 

You've secured the interview, now it is time for you to take the next step and secure the role! Easier said than done of course, but it's all in your hands. Having no experience when approaching an interview can be a difficult one because you are solely relying on your skill set and qualifications to secure the role. It's important to be confident and believe in your qualities. After all, it is what has got you to this stage!

We hope these steps can help ensure you that there's hope out there for people who may feel they don't have any or enough experience to apply for their dream job.
