If you are under the age of 16 then your school must provide you with suitable careers advice.

Careers advice for adults

If you are over 18, the National Careers Service (opens in a new window) provides information, advice and guidance to help you make decisions on learning, training and work. Support includes help with finding learning opportunities and courses, finding jobs to suit your skills, writing a CV and interview techniques.

Several libraries across Worcestershire also run weekly Job Clubs to help unemployed people back into work or those wishing to make a change. Find out more on the Worcestershire County Council's Job Clubs pages.
