Description

This is the first episode of Which Way Now, a series designed to offer advice to jobseekers, and anyone faced with decisions about their future. First, we take a look at a career in hairdressing and meet two young women who recently set up their own salon. Back in the studio, Maria talks to Terry McComish from DHSS office in Belfast who describes what to expect when first dealing with a local social security office. He further explains who is eligible for various benefits such as housing and supplementary benefits and whether you can continue to claim these whilst studying.

The programme also includes a summer job vacancy listing with 30 jobs in various locations across Northern Ireland. In another job-hunting segment, Tara and Mark try to convince prospective employers of their potential as future employees in short video presentations. And finally, if you ever thought of a career in film, the Joint Board for Film Industry Training is offering places on a training scheme to provide opportunities for young people looking to gain experience and skills in various aspects of filmmaking.
