Get work ready!
We’ve put together some tips for you for before you start your traineeship and for when you progress into employment!
Enrolling on a traineeship with Ixion means you will get your travel to and from your work placement reimbursed, and you also get a weekly training allowance – this will be paid into your bank account.
It is a good idea to have a professional email address to put on your CV together with your new skills, qualifications and work experience. firstname.lastname@example.org might not be appropriate for your future employer!
As part of your traineeship, we will support you in putting together your CV as we want to see you progress successfully from your traineeship either into an apprenticeship or employment.
It is great to start getting into a routine before you start your placement of getting up and going to bed at decent times (no more late nights recording TikTok videos or playing Minecraft).
How private are your accounts? Are there images, videos and comments you might not want people outside your friendship circle to see? When you start getting interviews your future employer might search for you on social!
If you know the sector you want to work in, whether it’s construction, marketing or IT, it might be a good idea to join some relevant professional networks to not only get the latest vacancies, but network and be knowledgeable about your sector for interviews.
