APPrenticeships – Should i care?


Aaagh! I have just spent the last few hours reading through the applications following our recent advertisements for apprenticeships and I am beginning to despair.

Why Are You So inconsistent With Your capitalisation? Are all your spill checkers broken or are you not intrested in making a good impression? It’s fantastic that you have achieved a grade C in English but it was in Lanuage not Language. As for your Strengths, well we are looking for great Communication SKills, but in writing and text? You also reckon quite a lot and your use of exclamation marks is as amazing as the job you said you did!!! As for emphasis and punctuation, well it so doesn’t exist unless you really do have a passion for cooking as caption of your school football team?

I don’t pretend to have the answers to where the responsibility lies but in today’s competitive job market these young adults need to be at the top of their game. And what will i do, Throw them all away and re-advertise? No i have faith and no, I am so not put off by the fact that you have no qualifications JAne, in fact i WAnT to give you a chance and look Foward to interviewing you soon!!!!!
