Ref: C2225186

Once you get back into the work or start your first job, there are a lot of things about the work place that can be confusing. This course will help you to understand what employers are looking for from their workers. It will help you to identify the things that you all ready know and to list things that you feel you may need help with. The course will then help you to find answers to your questions. You will be helped to understand what employers look for during an interview and will be given time during the course to work on things that you would like to improve on.
