Community Linx ran an employability and team building 2 day course last week offering residents the chance to have a greater understanding of what employers are looking for.
The course contents included:
- What makes you employable
- CV & Cover letters
- Job searching
- Perfect matching (job description vs. you)
- Application Forms
- ID and references?
- Interview skills
- JCP – Friend or Foe?
- Team Building skills
On the second day we went off site for the day while enjoying some of the sunshine at Bridlington we split into teams to play volleyball and cricket. In the afternoon we all went to Hull Raceways Go Karting track for some more team building where everyone became very competitive. Teams had to come up with good strategy for pit stops and keep a close eye on the lap times to ensure they where not falling behind the leaders.
It was a fantastic couple of days with residents fully involved and they all left feeling very happy and a bit tired I am sure.
