What do employers look for?

That’s a question we’ve all asked at some point, particularly when we’re thinking about applying for a new job. Of course, every employer is different. I can’t claim to be an avid follower of Alan Sugar’s Apprentice, now back on our screens. However, I’m not sure he’s absolutely typical of what you’ll find when you start brushing up your CV.

No doubt you’ve heard this more than once from your tutors, but good advice is worth repeating.

Be punctual and get here on time for all your classes.

Being late is not only against college rules, it also makes your life so much more complicated. A candidate would never arrive late for an interview; they simply would not get the job. So, please don’t fall into the trap of tardiness.
