Different jobs require different types of qualifications. Some employers will be happy to take on applicants with GCSE qualifications, while others may require more specific skills, such as accountancy, marketing and human resources, employers will often look for candidates with problem-solving and critical skills, meaning they will often need candidates with at least A levels or a BTEC National. To be an employer, it is important that you have the correct level of qualifications and in the right subjects.
Experience in a similar role:
Experience in a similar role can make the difference when an employer is choosing a new employee. If you can show that you have done similar work before, for another company, it should indicate that you can do it again for the new organisation. When applying for a job, one should think carefully about any previous experience that might show how one has skills required to be successful in the new role.
