200 CV reviews and many miles later we pulled into Centenary Square in Birmingham. Today’s main attraction in Birmingham – aside from a massive orange mobile CV clinic, was Channel 4’s Fairy Jobmother, who’ll be with us on the road today until Thursday 21 June….
The Fish4jobs Roadshow offers job seekers the opportunity to meet Channel 4’s Fairy Jobmother Hayley Taylor for career advice, but also training providers and employers. Today we were joined by Learn Direct - enthusiastic as ever to help job seekers get the skills they need to get back into work - British Gas and Fostering Solutions, all of whom have been with us since we started out in Bromley last Saturday.
At today’s job fair we were also joined by National Express, with driving jobs, yet another of the many sectors that we specialise in on Fish4jobs; Hillary’s Blinds, who were have self employed opportunities available; and with Lifetime Training who have apprenticeship programs available for aspiring fitness instructors aged 16-24 years.
With jobseekers queuing up from 9am for a CV review at our free CV Clinic, and career consultations with Channel 4’s Fairy Jobmother, it was yet another productive day. Hayley Taylor joins us in 4 cities this year and will be holding one-to-one sessions with jobseekers to help them with interview skills and their CV.
If you didn’t get a chance to meet Hayley in Birmingham today, you can watch all her career Q&A videos here. Whether you’re looking for Interview and CV advice, job hunting tips, advice on finding work post redundancy, changing careers, searching and applying for jobs or you’re a mature jobseeker looking to get back into work or find a new job, we've got the answers to help you get ahead.
Another employer on the road with us today was Meridian Business Support, who seemed to have found some potential candidates at today’s job fair, and had a good time all in all as Jo @Jilee_Jo tweeted:
