A recent survey conducted by the Prince's Trust showed that unemployed young people who were not in education or training were twice as likely to feel down, depressed, isolated or rejected during the ongoing economic recession.

The poll of more than 2,000 people aged between 16 and 25 showed that a quarter of unemployed young people also believed their joblessness had caused arguments with their parents or other relatives, and 15% said their life lacked direction. Some have even turned to alcohol and drug abuse.

If you are one of the one million 16-25-year-olds who are unemployed and are beginning to lose confidence and feel dejected, now’s the time cast away those negative thoughts because we may have found just what you need!

The National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACE) Dysgu Cymru and the Welsh Assembly Government have launched an online careers guide to help boost job-seekers’ skills and prospects through learning, volunteering and training.

Packaged in the form of 10 accessible, valuable and interesting tips, the website guides job-seekers through the various ways to enhance their employability, from learning to put together a stronger CV, to volunteering to gain experience and taking up courses to pick up new skills.

You’ll also be linked to relevant organisations who can provide you with all the support and advice that you require.

So when you have a moment to spare from all that job application form-filling, don’t forget to check out the website to see how you can gain valuable skills and nail the next job!
