Work Experience

Antz Junction values work experience, ALL members to date have engage on work experience, after a minimum two weeks on various projects with the work ready training academy, members with the above named companies or alternative companies may be sourced if more bespoke needs need to be met for example if a member may ‘need’ work experience with a gaming company.

At Antz Junction we feel the benefits of work experience are vast…

  • Members will benefit from developing skills and experience that will allow them to stand out to potential employers as well as helping them choose the right sector to work in.
  • Building useful skills that cannot be taught in the classroom as well as contacts that members would otherwise not be exposed to.
  • Barriers to work and understanding of simple rules of engagement within business, set our members apart.
  • A perspective employer will always look favourable on the effort taken by those who have done work experience, which empowers new talent and gives them an edge to push for the most sought after positions.
  • Soft skills such as team working, communication skills and commercial awareness, all of which are sought after by employers.
  • A willingness to work, to have work ready skills from their first day, such as deadline management, phone and email etiquette and the ability to work well with a variety of ages in a team.
  • Employers value competitive advantage and that’s what work experience gives members.
  • The possibility of leading to full-time job offers.
  • Enhance member’s application forms and interviews.
  • Equipping members with the knowledge that will enhance their job applications and particularly interviews. Because they gained a better understanding of the sector they want to go into, they will be able to talk more authoritatively and ask questions that resonate with the employer…
