Youths Should Think Laterally When It Comes To Job Hunting, Says Schneider Trading Associates

London, UK (RPRN) 11/23/11 — With the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics having revealed that over a million 16 to 24 year olds are currently unemployed, London based trading and brokerage house, Schneider Trading Associates (STA) is advising that youths should think outside the box when it comes to looking for a role with which to forge a long lasting career.

STA offers a career path for people of all ages through their Professional Trader Programme (PTP). However, with few 16 to 24 year olds applying for the course, STA believes that not enough young people have a grasp on the vast amount of different career options available to them and more should take a more lateral approach to job searching.

1.02 million youths were out of work in the last quarter, and it has been revealed to be the highest figure since records began in 1992. Industries such as fashion, hospitality, retail and media continue to be popular choices for young people but remain very competitive and do not always offer the best opportunities. Many also search for a career in terms of college courses or subjects they have studied at school but this is a restrictive approach to finding a long lasting career.

Matt Silvester, head of training at STA explains: “Young people need to expand their horizons when it comes to exploring career opportunities instead of pursuing the obvious path. This is partly the result of youths not being given enough guidance to help them realise that other opportunities exist in addition to what the education system or the media talk about. A survey carried out by City & Guilds found that one in four students studying for A-level and university qualifications had not received any careers advice, it is therefore hardly surprising that some young people struggle to understand what opportunities are available.

“The Professional Trader Programme that Schneider offers is often referred to as a graduate programme but it is not just for graduates; it is in fact open to people of all ages, backgrounds, qualifications and experience. Many young people would not necessarily know how to become a trader; the career is an avenue that youths would not consider for fear that it might be too difficult or expensive to get into. In fact our four week course is free of charge, and if the candidate successfully completes the assessments, they will then progress onto the three year training and mentorship scheme and become a self-employed trader with STA in the heart of the City.”
