How to get employed

Unemployed and looking for work?

In 2012 the unemployment rate for young black people was 49 per cent; 2.2 times higher than for young white people. Even with qualifications black men are still unlikely to secure a job, black graduates are three times more likely to face unemployment after university than white graduates. It is not surprising then that young black males feel demotivated and uninspired to keep on actively looking for work. But your enthusiasm and motivation is really what can lead to a great career opportunity, so don’t give up!

Top tips

  1. Update your CV
  2. Look for volunteering opportunities
  3. Search the internet for online jobs
  4. Visit your local job centre and speak to an advisor
  5. Look in your local newspaper for job opportunities

One of the main reasons many young people face unemployment is due to lack of work experience or inexperience of job interviews. There are many charity organisations that can help you with this, here are a list of organisations that help young people get back onto that employment ladder.

  • Careers Development Group (CDG)
