I am planning to apply for a job at Tesco. One of the question is the generic "Why do you want to work here?". Answer is the obvious, I want it for the pay but do I need to use some cliché answers for this question?
CV Tips / What do you do when you have a really poor work history?
« Last post by weber19 on January 10, 2017, 10:10:43 AM »
Really need advice. If you have had a really poor work history, lots of time off with no work, and more than a few jobs you have wlked out on (job abandonment), how do you go about filling out a resume? Do you list the 8 jobs none of which are very good, or the one or two that you worked for long enough to have a semi positive input? Really want to turn my life around and become employed, I'm truly afraid at the age of 26 it may be too late.
That's precisely why I tell my high school students to talk to the people in the jobs they want and find out from them what specific education is required to get hired. Too many people get an education thinking that it will get them a job, only to find out that the education they got only helped fill empty university seats.

You might try going to or and putting in those terms...  to see what comes up. In my career searches, I've used the keyword search on those sites to see what came up. That will call up any listings where those terms are used... not just in the title, but anywhere in the description. Don't limit the search area to your locale... let it just bring up whatever it can.

You can scan through these listings and see what fields are calling for people with your experience, and see what interests you. For example, using "web design" in a keyword search won't only bring up IT postings, but job postings from other areas like nonprofits, hospitals, malls, etc... anyone that's needing a web designer. As you find postings that catch your attention, make a note of them or, better yet, print them out. Then, figure out what it is about those positions that appeals to you. This might help you figure out where you want to direct your energies and apply your skills and degrees.

You may have heard about career counsellors suggesting you look through the classifieds in newspapers and circling any job posting that appeals to you... regardless of whether or not you have the necessary skills... as an exercise in identifying your interests. Going to the online job sites and doing keyword searches is essentially the same thing, just on a larger scale.
