Councillor Marshall welcomes you to our Jobs Fair <strong>2022</strong><br />

Interview Techniques<br />

If you have reached the interview stage of any job vacancy then you<br />

must have already impressed the employer with your application.<br />

But the job could be yours to lose. Below is a useful checklist.<br />

“<strong>Darlington</strong> Borough Council is proud to be hosting this Jobs Fair, full of opportunities for local job<br />

seekers to connect with local employers and offering a chance to progress with a career or find a new<br />

career pathway.<br />

Over 60 exhibitors are taking part including key employers with current vacancies in a range of sectors<br />

including hospitality, Civil Service, transport, health and social care, enterprise, customer services, IT,<br />

retail, professional and business services.<br />

You can drop in and chat to a diverse range of local employers who have vacancies and opportunities.<br />

You can also find out about other opportunities including training, apprenticeships, and self-employed<br />

options.<br />

Amongst the employers in attendance, there will be Aldi, Cummins, <strong>Darlington</strong> Economic Campus<br />

including The Treasury and Department of International Trade, <strong>Darlington</strong> Borough Council, EE, Durham<br />

Police, Royal Navy, NHS and many more. Representatives will be available to provide useful information<br />

on any current and/or upcoming vacancies and helpful advice for applications; a great opportunity to<br />

have a face-to-face discussion with prospective employers, all in one venue and at one time.<br />

Feedback from previous <strong>jobs</strong> <strong>fair</strong>s has been really positive and people who attended have found them<br />

very informative. The <strong>fair</strong> will be in an informal setting and aims to connect key employers with talented<br />

people seeking new work, new skills or a completely new direction in their work journey.<br />

This free event is open to all, and support organisations will also be on hand to offer advice and<br />

guidance on applying and interviewing for job, or starting up a business.”<br />

Councillor Alan Marshall, Cabinet member for Economy, <strong>Darlington</strong> Borough Council<br />

• Preparation is key Research the company by visiting its<br />

website. Get a ‘feel’ for what drives its senior management<br />

– the company aims and ethos – so take note of the ‘About<br />

Us’ section and the boss’s ‘Welcome’.<br />

• Insight Through your research you will also gain a valuable<br />

insight into working conditions and their culture and language,<br />

so you can use their phrases in the interview and sound<br />

knowledgeable.<br />

• Social media Make sure your social media platforms are<br />

‘appropriate’ as they will research you online.<br />

• First impressions are key They could make a decision on you<br />

within the first 15 seconds and the ‘pre-interview chat’ is very<br />

important.<br />

• Smile you are on show! From the second you enter the room<br />

smile and look interested. Offer your hand for a handshake.<br />

Accept any offers of a drink as it will give you time to relax.<br />

Ask them how they are. Respond to their welcoming<br />

questions which will be non-job related.<br />

• Speak They are desperate to learn as much as they can<br />

about you. Do your best to answer the questions, and if you<br />

struggle with any, throw it back to them with a “sorry, can I<br />

just double-check what you mean”, which gives your brain time<br />

to catch up and may result in them rephrasing the question to<br />

make it clearer.<br />

• Hobbies They might ask you what you do in your spare time.<br />

Try to have something interesting to talk about especially if it<br />

is your passion.<br />

• Tell them what you have done Try and steer the conversation<br />

to extra work you have put into studies, any work experience<br />

completed, any charity or voluntary work carried out, any<br />

awards won.<br />

• Dress code Look smart and well-groomed as it indicates you<br />

have made an effort. A smart shirt, or blouse, with smart trousers<br />

or skirt. Make sure your shoes are clean as well! Feedback from<br />

many local business owners is that jeans are not considered for<br />

interview<br />

• What do you think? They might ask your opinion on any<br />

subject. Try to be balanced, offer a view from both sides and<br />

don’t be too radical or extremist.<br />

• Questions, questions Have at least three questions prepared<br />

to ask them at the end of the interview. A good starting point<br />

is “I noticed on your website…so what is…or how does that<br />

work?” because this shows you have done your research.<br />

• Don’t slip up Interviewers know that candidates relax once<br />

the formal interview is over. So stay on your guard until you<br />

have left the building.<br />

• Follow-ups Don’t be afraid to follow up the interview with<br />

a phone call saying how much you enjoyed the experience<br />

and asking when you are likely to hear back.<br />

• Feedback If you don’t get the job, don’t be angry, there could<br />

be other vacancies coming up at the same place in the future.<br />

Do ask for feedback as it will help you with the next interview.

Jobs Search Strategies<br />

The most challenging thing about finding a job is deciding what you<br />

would like to do in the first place.<br />

Work dominates life and fills the lion’s share of the day and week. You<br />

can also expect to be at work for the next three to four decades, so a<br />

bit of self-reflection is well worth the effort.<br />

Think about you, your likes and dislikes, when you perform the best<br />

during the day. So, are you a morning person or come alive at night?<br />

Do you want part-time or full-time work, a job or a career?<br />

Are you good with your hands or better with your mind? Do you want<br />

to work inside or out or hit the road as some sort of driver?<br />

The lucky might be able to combine an interest or passion with a<br />

career while many will be working to live rather than the other way<br />

around.<br />

Decision made, it’s never been easier to find a job to go for because<br />

there is an array of help out there, particularly online with information<br />

and vacancies just a click away. Many of the sites lead you through the<br />

process by asking key questions about you and your skills.<br />

Have a drive around town and see what is there, particularly on<br />

<strong>Darlington</strong>’s many industrial estates and commercial areas. Match<br />

what you see with your skills and interests, research the company<br />

online and get in touch – chances are they will be delighted to hear<br />

from you as employers are struggling to recruit.<br />

Recruitment is fast moving in hospitality too with cafes, restaurants,<br />

pubs, hotels and the health and fitness sectors always on the lookout<br />

for enthusiastic staff.<br />

Keep an eye out for the many careers <strong>fair</strong>s and <strong>jobs</strong> events that are<br />

regularly taking place in the borough.<br />

Local and national press also advertise <strong>jobs</strong> both in print and online<br />

and there are many <strong>jobs</strong> boards on which vacancies are posted. There<br />

are a host of recruitment agencies around helping employers fill posts<br />

and direct you towards your next career.<br />

So there is plenty to go at when you are looking for a job or a fresh<br />

start and if it all feels a tad overwhelming the National Careers Service<br />

is always on hand to help you out.<br />

Word of mouth, whether that’s in person or via<br />

social media, is also a great way to find a job.<br />

Get the message out there that you are looking<br />

for work using friends, family, colleagues and<br />

associates. Where do they work? Are they hiring?<br />

The public sector is a huge area of opportunity<br />

Finding a job on LinkedIn and building your profile<br />

LinkedIn is the digital media platform with real clout whether<br />

you are coming to the end of your student days, looking for <strong>jobs</strong>,<br />

or starting your own business and seeking customers.<br />

The great news is that it is free, easy to set up as the site talks<br />

you through each stage and the template asks for all the relevant<br />

information you will need.<br />

Remember it’s a professional platform not a social one so care<br />

needs to be taken to think about your profile and posts.<br />

You can use it to connect with professionals, many of who<br />

are desperate to recruit, learn more about the work you are<br />

interested in, find and apply for <strong>jobs</strong> and receive advice and<br />

support from experienced professionals.<br />

The mechanics are easy but to sign up for a LinkedIn account<br />

you’ll need a professional sounding email address free from any<br />

inappropriate references. It may be better to create a new email<br />

account that is simple, using only your name.<br />

Once signed up, LinkedIn helps you with the rest guiding you<br />

through creating a profile. The more information included the<br />

better as it will be easier for employers to find.<br />

Your profile photo is important too and must look professional.<br />

It must be just you, set against a plain background, with your<br />

face in the centre of the frame, be a good quality picture, not<br />

blurry and be well lit so your face is visible. Look smart and wellgroomed<br />

and smile.<br />

Complete all sections including a headline, summary, and work<br />

experience, volunteering experience, skills and education history<br />

– then start connecting.<br />

The headline is crucial as it promotes who you are and grabs the<br />

attention of a recruiter, employer, or anyone in your network. It<br />

may be the only information they see.<br />

So in 120 characters try and make sure it says who you are, what<br />

you do and what you want to be. It needs to be enough to get<br />

people to read on or connect with you.<br />

Your summary is your chance to let people know more about<br />

you. It can attract employers who are hiring,<br />

or recruiters who are looking for people on<br />

their behalf, or clients.<br />

It needs to tell your story so be passionate<br />

about what you love. Talk about your goals<br />

and write it in the first person (‘I’ not ‘he’ or<br />

‘she’). Use phrases and keywords that show<br />

you have researched the sector you are<br />

interested in.<br />

End the summary with a call to action, for<br />

instance, if you want employers/potential<br />

clients to contact you, include an email<br />

address.<br />

Words are cheap so any details of work<br />

placements, shadowing or internships and<br />

previous employment are crucial. Highlight<br />

your achievements and show examples of<br />

your work if you have online examples you<br />

can link to. Show the value you have added in<br />

the past.<br />

Any examples of volunteering also helps<br />

professionals build up a good picture of your<br />

values. Employers are looking for people who<br />

will be ‘a good fit’ for their company.<br />

You can add up to 50 skills on your LinkedIn profile but add at<br />

least five if you want to appear in searches. The more skills you<br />

list, the higher up in searches you’ll appear.<br />

If you aren’t sure about the skills to select then look at job<br />

profiles to see what the sector is looking for.<br />

Make it easy for employers to check you have the level of<br />

qualifications they are looking for. They will also want to know<br />

what you have gained from studying and concentrate on the<br />

education most relevant to your career. Include achievements<br />

such as awards, scholarships, presenting at a conference,<br />

successful projects, any positions of responsibility.<br />

Once all the details are input, use LinkedIn to build connections.<br />

The more you have, the more people can find you.<br />

Start with friends, family and people you know from university,<br />

college or school and include endorsements for your skills to<br />

show you can do the things you say you can.<br />

When you meet people in a social setting or at networking<br />

events, offer to connect with them and your network will soon<br />

begin to grow.<br />

Be active to maintain your presence on LinkedIn so you are<br />

noticed by potential employers.<br />

Check it often, like you do social media sites. Like, comment and<br />

share articles and other people’s posts to get noticed by your<br />

connections.<br />

Create your own content to raise your profile and join groups<br />

that are relevant for your chosen sector. Link with school, college<br />

and university alumni groups.<br />

Increase your chances of getting a job sooner by being<br />

#OpenToWork. There are millions of <strong>jobs</strong> on LinkedIn and once<br />

you have looked at a couple, the algorithms of the site start to<br />

send you similar posts, making your task at lot easier. From the<br />

<strong>jobs</strong> you click on, LinkedIn builds up a picture of your needs and<br />

helps you achieve your goals.<br />

Care is<br />

more than<br />

toilet rolls<br />

and bed<br />

baths.<br />

Colleagues from adult social care including Rachael standing at the back on the far right<br />

Meet Rachael, a reablement coordinator<br />

with the reablement team at <strong>Darlington</strong><br />

Borough Council. We asked Rachael to tell<br />

us about her journey into her career and if<br />

care was always something she wanted to<br />

do.<br />

“When I left school, I had no real idea of<br />

‘what I wanted to do when I was an adult!’<br />

I suppose I was more focussed on making<br />

money – this led me to work in retail for six<br />

years until I realised time was ticking and<br />

I’d become the adult I had envisioned, and<br />

I hadn’t progressed in terms of a career.<br />

I stumbled into a job with a care agency,<br />

something I never envisaged myself doing<br />

to be honest. I was desperate to leave retail,<br />

so this was hasty option, but something<br />

I am so glad I did! Within my role as a<br />

carer in the community I was able to learn<br />

so much on the job, the experience was<br />

honestly invaluable, I was also able to<br />

gain qualifications like my level 2 and 3 in<br />

adult health and social care among other<br />

qualifications. The fact I was learning and<br />

earning made such a difference and opened<br />

my eyes to the opportunities in front of me.<br />

“Fast forward a few years and I was still<br />

within the care industry, now working in<br />

residential care – so in a care home. I was<br />

in the home throughout the Covid period,<br />

and I have never experienced anything<br />

like the teamwork, compassion, emotion,<br />

and work family strength like this before.<br />

It was an incredible experience to be part<br />

of. Some residents had no family, as their<br />

carer you become their family, their friend,<br />

their shoulder and that it such a rewarding<br />

part of the role. We would all laugh so much<br />

and of course cry so much, it unlike any<br />

other job. I progressed to a senior care and<br />

support worker before deciding to take on a<br />

“<br />

I wish I could<br />

give my 16-yearold<br />

self a shake<br />

and steer myself<br />

down the path of<br />

adult health and<br />

social care<br />

”<br />

sooner.<br />

new opportunity with the council.”<br />

As a reablement coordinator, my role now is<br />

to assess those that have been in hospital,<br />

for short term support, with the aim of<br />

regaining independence, enabling them<br />

to remain in their own homes and where<br />

possible reducing the need for long term<br />

support. Every day is different for me, from<br />

writing assessments to understand how<br />

someone is coping at home, to planning<br />

support and working with other teams and<br />

agencies to ensure we can achieve the goal<br />

we have set together.”<br />

“It’s strange when I think back to my<br />

younger years and how I just didn’t have a<br />

clue what I wanted to do or where I wanted<br />

to be. My perception of working in care was<br />

so wrong! I honestly thought I’d be helping<br />

people in the toilet, essentially wiping<br />

bums, and giving bed baths, but caring is<br />

so much more than that. I have built some<br />

incredible relationships with those I care<br />

for, for them I may be the only person they<br />

speak to for a couple of days at a time, I am<br />

lifeline for them.<br />

I wish I could give my 16-year-old self a<br />

shake and steer myself off down the path<br />

of adult health and social care sooner, but<br />

then again, I believe my choices have led me<br />

to where I am now, and I am grateful I’ve<br />

had the journey I have. Yes, it hasn’t been<br />

straight forward, but I have got here, and I<br />

could not be happier.”<br />

“I feel I have learnt through experience,<br />

than I would have at college, which I think<br />

proves that it is never too late for a career<br />

change.<br />

My advice to anyone considering moving<br />

into a new career or starting their in care<br />

would be…Go for it! Don’t be afraid! It’s<br />

really not as scary as you think. Care isn’t<br />

for everyone, but I wouldn’t be quick to<br />

assume that it’s not for you. I was one of<br />

those people and I will hold my hands up<br />

that I was wrong and slightly ignorant to<br />

the world of adult health and social care.<br />

There is so much more to it. It is providing<br />

support, it’s kindness, it’s being there to<br />

listen to someone, holding their hand,<br />

helping someone to feel good and look their<br />

best, helping them feel empowered and be<br />

motivated! It’s also providing the essential<br />

support that some may need in the last few<br />

days of their life, making them comfortable<br />

and ensuring they are not alone. A career in<br />

care is so rewarding, something I feel is hard<br />

to match in other role - we really do make a<br />

difference.”<br />

adult health and social care at <strong>Darlington</strong><br />

Borough Council, so get in touch.<br />

The Importance of a Good CV<br />

Search online and there is plenty of help on how to write a CV but<br />

prospective employers will be able to spot a template. One size doesn’t<br />

fit all and your CV needs to be bespoke to the job you are seeking. It also<br />

has to reflect you to help it stand out from the others a company may<br />

receive.<br />

A CV is a short, written summary of your skills, achievements and<br />

experience relating to a role you want. Employers often ask for a CV, and<br />

if you are sending speculative letters to businesses you’d like to work<br />

for, you’ll need to include one. They may have vacancies that aren’t<br />

advertised and a good CV could get you that all-important interview.<br />

Think about how your skills and experience match what the employer<br />

is looking for. It is vital that you tailor your CV specifically to suit the job<br />

description and the company.<br />

Include all your qualifications with the most recent at the top. Previous<br />

<strong>jobs</strong>, internships and volunteering experience should be listed with<br />

a brief overview of your roles and responsibilities. Include your past<br />

employers’ details and evidence of any training courses and driving<br />

licences. Traditional CVs tend to be chronological, listing work and<br />

education first, and starting with the most recent experience. Skillsbased<br />

CVs focus on your job-related skills and personal qualities while<br />

technical ones, such as professions like IT and engineering, highlight the<br />

skills you have for that industry.<br />

Creative CVs should link to an online portfolio, and could contain video<br />

or infographics, while academic ones can be longer. Must haves include<br />

contact details, such as your name, phone number and email address<br />

(always use a professional sounding email).<br />

You can also provide a link to a professional networking profile, such as<br />

LinkedIn.<br />

There is no longer any need to include age, date of birth, marital status,<br />

or nationality. In your personal profile, think about the job and what the<br />

employer is looking for to make it sound like you are the best person for<br />

the post.<br />

Sum up who you are and what you hope to do. Place it under your name<br />

and contact details.<br />

Depending on where you are in your career, the education history could<br />

come next for college leavers but, if you have been working for some<br />

time, the career details take precedence.<br />

Include the names of your qualifications, school, college or university<br />

and the dates you attended, the number of qualifications secured and<br />

grades if they are impressive.<br />

If you’re applying for your first job, focus on skills you’ve learned through<br />

education, any part-time work, work experience, internships and<br />

placements and volunteering. Hobbies, interests and achievements can<br />

also attract an employer and will provide content to discuss during any<br />

interview.<br />

Work history can include placements, volunteering and any paid <strong>jobs</strong>,<br />

listing these with the most recent first.<br />

List the employer details, job title and the dates you worked there.<br />

Include a brief summary of your roles and responsibilities and highlight<br />

your strengths and skills, using words such as ‘organised, created, built,<br />

managed, planned’, and your achievements giving positive examples.<br />

If there are gaps in employment highlight the positive things you did<br />

during this period.<br />

References aren’t necessary at this stage but you could include that<br />

‘references are available on request’. They will ask for references if you<br />

get through to the next stage so give some thought to the best people to<br />

approach.<br />

Employers do receive many CVs and often have to decide quickly who<br />

will be invited to interview. So your CV needs to stand out by looking tidy<br />

and professional.<br />

The starting point must be researching the job and company and fitting<br />

the CV to it. On a practical note use a clear font such as Arial, Times<br />

New Roman or Calibri, with a minimum size of 11. Use the same style<br />

throughout and avoid gimmicks such as brightly coloured paper. Your<br />

finished CV should be no more than two sides of A4.<br />

Make it simple and quick to read by using headings, bullet points and<br />

spacing, and be clear and to the point.<br />

Always get someone else to read it because you can’t see your own<br />

mistakes and double check your spelling and grammar. Save a backup<br />

copy which you can amend and adapt to future <strong>jobs</strong>.<br />

Always send a polite cover letter with your CV explaining why you are<br />

applying for the post.<br />
