We are helping to connect students with businesses who have work experience programs
(PRWEB) May 11, 2011
When trying to secure Work Experience Year 10 placements, Australian high school students have for too long relied on family connections. In the past this has resulted in them accepting whatever was available, rather than securing a place in an organisation that will give them insights into a career they actually have an interest in following. Those days are gone, with a new website, WorkExperienceDirectory.com.au, set to change the way Work Experience jobs are found.
The Work Experience Concept
“Experience has long been regarded as the best teacher, and in no way is this more evident than when Year 10 students undertake practical training and experience in a real work environment” explains the site founder Daniel Dobos.
Work experience Melbourne candidates are in a great position to begin networking with those involved businesses and organisations in their chosen field - sometimes showcasing much sought-after talent and skills.
Students are required to apply to organisations in a formal manner, with a cover letter and resume, indicating the reasons for choosing that particular organisation. This gives them their first insight into the job application process, and a skill to build upon as their experience grows.
Work Experience Directory
The newly launched website WorkExperienceDirectory.com.au specialises in Work Experience Melbourne placements.
“We are helping to connect students with businesses who have work experience programs.” said Mr Dobos.
These businesses, which are able to post vacancies to the site for free, understand the benefit of being able to identify talent early and potentially mentor students during further training options.
The advantages to students are many-fold.
“By creating a free account on the site, students are able to access details on the Work Experience jobs listed.” explains Mr Dobos. “This feature alone makes the site invaluable, but we have gone even further, providing a range of job search tips for students as well.
The Work Experience Directory is one of a kind - there is no other directory that has a focus on work experience placements for students. It is set to streamline the process for Work Experience Year 10 selection, and create a raft of new opportunities for students.
Free registration is available now at WorkExperienceDirectory.com.au
Work Experience Directory is Australia’s number one work experience placement site. It has made the search for work experience easier than ever before by bringing students and companies together in one place for the very first time. Its purpose is to link the students looking for a placement with the employers who have the placements.
