The Year in Industry (YINI)Watch
just wondering if any1 else out there is planning on taking a YINI, and how far along they are with the whole thing. havnt got any interviews yet, but would be great to hear frm some ppl that have to get some idea bout what to expect...
also- to any1 already doing a yini- how hard was it to find accommodation?? how much help did u get in setting yourself up away from home? any advice you have would be rly great.
I have sent off my application, and been to the 'interview' with the Yini people themselves, but I haven't had any interviews with companies yet. At the moment it seems like nothing is happening, so I hope I hear something soon. I'm worried about not gettig a placement.
I'm hoping to get one close to home so I can live with my dad and save money.
how long ago was the interview thing with the yini ppl? i was kinda expecting to start receiving stuff from companies soon after that, so if its still gona be a long wait after the assessment event, i mite start applying to other schemes as well to get them on the go at the same time....
hope u hear some stuff soon
The other other was Sales person at some Jam factory downs south in a place called Tiperley or somert. Just waiting to see when they want me for an interview there.
Not even sure If I will accept any offers for a YINI year any more, just paid and took it to find out about it etc. If I get a really good offere Ill take it but recently been thinking about UNI and scared that if I take a YINI year out that I will never go back to education LOL
most companies will wait until the start of the business year when they know their budget.
tourist: great to hear from some1 who has already been through the whole thing (well, i wasnt sure from ur post whether u hav already finished or are part way thru... mayb i'm just being dense here too...). where was your placement (geographically & which company?), also what sort of things were you doing for them?
and ive had another 2 YINI places emailed to me today.
Are people planning to move away from home? I was hoping to stay with my parents?!
ive had another 2 YINI places emailed to me today.
i just wanted to ask ppl who have applied for the yini gap year. i was confused in what actually happens on tht day....do we have proper interveiw with the yini staff...or is it tht they help us in sorting out ay problems we have have with interviews etc..
I have an interview with an Architect Firm on Tuesday. I know there is going to be competition from other yini people. haha
How did it go?
Did you get interviewed?
They asked me for my first region of choice, and since I'm from N.Ireland I just randomly chose any place in England because I don't really know anywhere... fun fun! I can't wait to start!
You will go and have a mini interview with them in which they try to glean information from you that you haven't already put on your form. They'll then add this to your CV and explain to you a bit more about YINI.
Well that's what happened to me.
I applied in late April 2006 (when I decided to take a gap year) and I think I had my first interview in the beginning of June after which tones of interviews started rolling in most of which I declined as they were either boring prospects or crap locations. All in all I think I had 4 interviews and my YINI was secured by early August. Year in Industry is the way forward!
