Results Day Q & A with GetMyFirstJob

Between 10 and 5 tomorrow we will be holding a live Q&A session for you across social media.

All you need to do is Tweet us using the hashtag #askGetMyFirstJob or comment on our Facebook Live stream! But which GetMyFirstJob recruitment expert will you be talking to we hear you ask?! It’s Hollie - we’ve asked her some questions about tomorrow…

Positive thoughts generate positive feelings and attract positive life experiences
Hollie, GetMyFirstJob

What is your role at GetMyFirstJob? 

I’m Hollie and I’m a Talent Manager and recruit for many different apprenticeships but I specialise in the Engineering and Automotive sector at GetMyFirstJob. That means that I might call you if I have a vacancy that perfect for you, but also you might call me if an apprenticeship takes your fancy. I speak to young people every day about apprenticeships, so I’ll be able to help you out. 

What are you expecting on Results Day? 

I am expecting you to have lots of questions about what options you have. Its a daunting time but I’m here to help. I’m not here to force you down a route you don’t want to go down, but more advise you on what your options are.   

What kind of questions are you expecting to get on results day?

I think you’ll be asking what you can do with their results. Whether you are really happy with your results and are looking for higher or degree apprenticeships or perhaps you didn’t do so well and want to go through their options and want advice on the different levels of apprenticeships are on offer to you. You may even be confused about going to University against doing an apprenticeship and want honest opinions and advice on both options. I’ll be on hand to answer anything.    

What would you say to someone who’s collecting their results tomorrow?    

I would say to anyone collecting their results to not over think it or be nervous. As much as it a nerve-wracking time, you have tried your best and that is all that matters. Your results do not define you. Everything happens for a reason!

Are you excited to speak to young people about their choices? 

Yes, I am excited to speak to candidates about their results. Its an exciting time thinking about what you want to do as a career and I am here to give as much advice as I can.     

If you could go back to your results day, what would you change?  

If I could go back to results day I would just try and enjoy it. Unfortunately, apprenticeships were not really advertised when I was leaving school and when I was looking at my options so I didn’t have anyone I could talk to about what to do next. If I could go back, I would 100% do an apprenticeship (probably in animal care).    

Anything else you’d like to say?  

Try not to over think your results and don’t be too disheartened if you don’t get the results you want. There is always an option in life. 

Hollie will be on hand all day tomorrow, let us know how she does ;)
