I can help with this! What’s THE most frustrating thing you can hear when you’re really trying to move into a new sector in which you have zero experience and no formal qualifications???
“We’re just looking for someone with a bit more experience.”
But don’t worry! You don’t necessarily need a degree to change career paths these days.
In fact, a recent survey showed 58% of U.K. employers hire based on potential rather than experience or qualifications.
So how can you stand out without having the quals or experience?
Well, how about taking matters into your own capable hands and completing a quick and affordable online course?
