This week we will be introducing you to the four young people who are undertaking our research. The youth employment accessibility research is based on young people’s experiences and expectations of applying for jobs online. The assessment of the jobs page on company websites is then carried out by young people too. Today, we’d like you to meet Lisa…
Tell us what you think about Access Generation’s research project?
I love the fact this research should help companies become more aware of the issues young people face when trying to get employment. Employers may also become aware of both the positives and negatives of their own websites from impartial users. I hope employers take the research in a positive manner and use it to their and prospective employees advantage.
What would you like us to tell employers on your behalf?
Young people shouldn’t be underestimated. They are the skills of the future and should be nurtured to be able to reach their potential.
Tell us a little bit about yourself…
I aspire to be a Department for Work and Pensions work coach and I find pleasure in helping others in any way I can. I attained a Masters in Business Intelligence Systems and Data Mining from De Montfort University which I thoroughly enjoyed. I find cross stitching and card making relaxing and I have great pride when a design is completed.
