Aims & Benefits of a Job Club

The Job Club aims to expand awareness and help participants understand how the application of simple techniques can greatly enhance jobseeking skills. Membership of a Job Club may help participants to be more acutely aware of their employable/marketable personal attributes. There is an emphasis on 'skills' learnt when gaining a qualification, not merely the subject matter.
The following can be done through a Job Club:
  • Develop jobseeking skills and techniques such as preparing a Curriculum Vitae and application letter;
  • Develop an individual job search plan;
  • Prepare for interviews;
  • Build relationships and rapport;
  • Develop verbal communication skills as well as body language skills;
  • Identify individual strengths and skills and match them to local work opportunities;
  • Identify ways to improve jobseeking decision-making capabilities;
  • Explore and analyse local work opportunities;
  • Have access to the facilities of the Job Club (telephones, computer, email, newspapers etc.);
  • Develop a network of contacts which can be of help in getting work.
