For people who love cars, a career where they can be close-up and personal with their passion can be the best option.
There are actually a number of interesting and promising career paths in this field. Those can range from general motorsport to car design or engineering and mechanics.
As with many occupations today, getting into a desired career field or a particular company isn’t always easy.
For those who are looking for a position in competitive fields such as motorsport or IT, an apprenticeship can often be the key to get on with a great career.
Companies today are more willing to take on apprentices as compared to full-time employees. But this is not the main advantage of an apprenticeship.
What’s important to know is that a majority of companies today will hire their apprentices at the end. Some say that apprentices in the United Kingdom are the closest to a guarantee for employment, even in very competitive fields.
An apprenticeship is the best way to get skills and qualifications “on the job”. It is the best way to get hands-on experience as opposed to theoretical knowledge. And it is this hands-on experience that employers today value most. As for myself, I have seen some employers rejecting jobseekers simply because they did not have the hands-on experience, despite great grades in school.
In my opinion you should not waste too much time time after school looking for full-time employment but rather try to get on as an apprentice and then reap all the benefits that come with it. Rest assured that almost any employer today will be impressed if you can show an apprenticeship on your CV. And as mentioned above, most of the time you won’t even have to since your chances to get hired will be very high!
Today it is not difficult to find available apprenticeship vacancies such such as IT apprenticeships or motorsport apprenticeship vacancies. There exist several dedicated websites today where you can find them and where you can apply.
