Are you struggling to find a job?
Are you getting the interview but losing out at the offer?
Are you looking to maximise your working and personal performance?
Are you looking for global opportunities?
Employers are looking for individuals with more than just a hard-work ethic, motivation, drive, resilience and intercultural sensitivities and traits. Demand is growing for applicants who can speak another language, who can interact on an international scale improving international business relationships, because more companies are global, with worldwide partners and clients.
Recent reports from the Foreign Office have highlighted complaints from Germany, France, Spain and the Netherlands having to recruit engineers from their home countries or elsewhere due to British graduates not having the required level of language skills.
Here’s another worrying statistic. The UK accounts for about 12.3% of the total population of the European Union – yet in the EU’s most recent recruitment round, only seven of the 308 jobs on offer (2.27%) ultimately went to UK applications – who made up just 1.5% of the overall candidates.
The Times article stated, ‘Young people need to understand that they are not competing against their neighbour, but in a global marketplace.’
