Young and Unemployed

I've been looking into the stats on the number of young people in Derby who are are claiming job seeker's allowance. I found out that over the last 3 years it was up 77% to over 2,000 18 to 24 year olds. I went out in to Derby to ask random young people the daunting question, "why aren't you working?" And this is what they told me for this morning's breakfast show on BBC Radio Derby...
Everybody I spoke to was frustrated but nonetheless friendly and not in the least bit threatening. It just shows that with a mic in your hand you have the unspoken permission to ask people almost anything and that most people don't mind being asked questions. I remember when I was a teenager on work experience at an Oxford commercial radio station I was asked to go out and vox people on their sexual health, and people answered!

  1. An interview is just like meeting someone for the first time. Building instant, deep rapport is essential. One of the best and fastest ways of achieving subconscious rapport is by using keywords. Keywords are the specific words that are most important to you in all the universe when you describe something. These words are from your heart and anyone who uses the same words in the same context is automatically connected to you on a deep subconscious level.
