“Can’t get a job – only want experience. So how to get the experiences?”
Build your references through your work placements
You have heard it many times. Employers want to employ people with experience. All those years getting your degree suddenly count for nothing. How do you get the work experience if no one will give you a job? References from you hosts – showing how you use your skills, that you are punctual and have a good work ethic and that you can make decisions.
Taking a pic with your Host doing the WT sign proves you where there
Take a picture with your host – both doing the WT sign
Prove to employers you were there. Get pictures of the work you did, a ‘digital stamp’ proving you where there with your host making the WT sign. Add these pictures to your references after you receive them. It makes all the difference.
