Careers help from the BBC


The Work it Up site and digital television programme provide you with an essential career information guide, whether you're looking for your first job or you fancy a change from your current career. Featuring a different sector each week, Work It Up tells you what the jobs are, where they are and what you need to get them.

From this page you can select The Essentials - an armoury of general advice. So, if you want the lowdown on training and careers, then you've come to the right place. And, we'll even try to help you get onto a work experience placement.
For other sectors, use the dropdown menu at the bottom of the page.

You can watch the Work It Up Programmes on BBC Knowledge every Sunday morning at 9.00.

The Essentials is your quick reference guide to all the facts and organisations that can help you with your search for a job and your final application.

Everyone's got exam passes or degrees nowadays. What will distinguish you from other applicants is real life, relevant vocational experience - work experience, the currency of the successful applicant.

Where can I find...? Who can help me with...? I want to apply to... Is there anywhere I can...? All these questions should find an answer with the help of this collection of resources.

Even with a wealth of professional experience behind you, writing your own CV can be a daunting and difficult task:
* How do you isolate your key skills?
* How do I tailor my experience to be relevant to the job?
* What are they looking for in an applicant?
