Last night we talked about the battle facing young people looking
for jobs. The internet exploded with Europe responses. Welcome to
the second night of Up For Hire Live.
Good evening. Welcome. All week we are cracking open the world of work
to show you how to get into a job and stayed in that job. We will be
farming out of work young people who we sent out to experience an
entire career in fast forward. Tonight they are managing high
street shops. And joining as in the studio art Radio 1's Edith Bowman.
And our comedian, Andi Osho. And to love some grenades into the room is
Katie Hopkins. And one of the founders of Innocent smoothies is
also here to give some advice. Some of the biggest companies in the
country will be giving people paid employment. You can find out who
will get a job later on on the show tonight. Last night you told us you
wanted to talk about degrees. Whether or not it was worth having
one. Tonight we're asking, his university a waste of time? Do you
think that graduates expect the job just because they study to history
of art? Or do you think they're making it harder for the rest of us
to get a job. Let us know. And here from the breakfast show on BBC
Radio 1, none other than Tina. There was you're degree a waste of
time? If you did not go to university, aren't you glad? Get in
touch with your comments and we will show them throughout the show.
You can also use Twitter or Facebook. And we have an online
page where companies are giving advice sessions. So do get in touch.
Lots of people took part last night so it is worth having a look. All
this week Up For Hire Live is following for a young unemployed
people who we fast-forwarded through an entire career in a
matter of days. Yesterday they struggled with a minimum wage jobs
but tonight they will be managing a high-street shop. Let us meet them.
I am desperate to find a job. I just want to be like other people
and have that stress. Some people found you quite abrupt. That was
rude. I wanted to make my children proud of me. I did not go to
university because I thought I did not need qualifications. You would
expect someone to make an impression on the first day, but he
has not done that. I have applied for every job, what more can I do?
This is the end of my career! been looking for work for almost
one year. What have I done wrong? I cannot say that I want the job when
I cannot even put a burger into a box!
The stars of the show this week. Chris, Sacha, Kirsty and Ben.
Tonight we will see you run a shop. You were with us last night. What
kind of feedback did you get? main thing about yesterday was that
many of my friends are graduates and they felt a degree is important.
People were saying that a degree is not so important. And people on the
show said that we should do menial jobs. You'll have a degree, Kirsty.
That is partly why we're going to have the debate later. Discussing
the value of a degree. Kirsty, what was your reaction? What did your
friends say? A couple of people said I was hot! It was fantastic.
It is great that this kind of thing is being discussed. It has been a
problem now for years. And hopefully this will end in a
positive way. We will speak to you all later. Enjoying yourselves so
far? Loving it. Well these before will be with us
to night and every night and tonight we will see them become a
boss for the first time. The careers of their recruits are
about to accelerate. There will be employed by the hand-made cosmetics
giant, Lush. They have over 700 shops in 45 countries across the
world. My Name Is Amanda. I look after at the managers and trainee
managers. They will be sent to work in some of Britain's busiest stores.
The managers will be leaving their shops and you will be left to
manage them. That is not even as step, it is a leap! Sacha it will
be manager of the Covent Garden Store in London. Kirsty will be in
Brighton. I hope I will be a good manager. Chris will be on the
King's Road in Chelsea. I am eager to get in there. And Ben will be in
Leeds. I am going to go in there and manage the whole store up!
People will be counting on me. current managers will leave them on
their own and will not return until the end of the day. These are the
keys to the shop. Their challenge on the first day is to find their
own way of managing a team. Just make sure all your customers are
feeling amazing. And it begins immediately with a staff meeting.
We are just about to Oban. Being a shop manager it entails taking
control of the team. You have to be at the forefront of everything.
we bring people into the shop, they will buy something. Motivating the
team is important and delegating is essential. I am Chris, a yurt new
manager. -- your new manager. is so exciting. Would you like to
smell this? In Leeds Ben is about to face his first managerial
decision. We need the keys to get the money out of the till. I will
go and get the passion fruit. I thought I would go and do it
because Steve knows all about delivery. I hope I am doing OK at
the moment. I am surprised he did not send someone. The manager would
not normally leave the shop. Can I go for my break earlier? There was
no direction, no one knew what they were doing. There is not a Lotus --
a lot of motivation. I have no idea what time it is, I need out watch.
-- a watch. I need to lose my inhibitions a bit more. In an
attempt to bond with his team Ben has had an idea. It breaks down the
barriers between me and that staff. If we have at song. In Brighton,
Kirsty sets herself a break time. Everything is a bit messy. Now is
the time to do something about it. I was going to get back to telling
you! It is the job of the manager and to motivate the staff and you
should lead by example. But at the moment it is the other way around.
Well I will come back out. That was quite annoying. I was surprised to
be stopped when I was walking in the door. Ind Leeds... It is show
time. Dead man walking! I am going to sink a wonderful song. I almost
fell over! -- sing a wonderful song. # I whip my hair back and forth! #
Public humiliation makes you feel better! Before he locks up, Paddy
wants to have a word. There is no instance were you as the manager
need to leave the shop to buy a piece of fruit. You are a manager.
I think perhaps you struggled to delegate. Today perhaps the team
were too ill, let's have an enjoyable day. You made yourself
look silly and they loved it. But you need to be the manager.
think... Sorry, one second. I am upset now. I thought I did
well and put a lot of effort in. So that is pretty hard to take. I care
a lot about this. I think that is That was fascinating, I thought,
Ben. It is interesting when you said you care so much, why did you
care so much? It was a good opportunity. At this point in my
life, bat is a good step to take. This is an area I would like to do,
something I have tried to get in tears. To prove to people I am good
enough was a great opportunity yesterday we saw Kirsty cried when
she was dressed as a clown. Sacha, you cried when you got negative
feedback. Chris is the only one who is tearless! It struck me, if he
will be a manager or word in any job, you have got to take negative
feedback. The feedback you got was partly good, why did it make you
cry? There was a bit more criticism there as well, and I put a lot of
effort in that day, and the attitude I had compared to Crealy
Adventure Park was different because I was very negative there.
I thought I did a good job, but I didn't. That's go to Katie Hopkins,
formerly of The Apprentice. What is your reaction? The problem that we
face here for all of you that have cried is that our system does not
give us hard feedback any more, we are wrapped in cotton wool at every
institution, school does not give us hard feedback, colleges do not
give us hard feedback, universities tell us we are great and we never
fail at any things. So people can't deal with bad feedback? Exactly.
None of them deal with that -- whip back feedback. I have gone through
tons of bad criticism, I have had colleges, been pregnant and had
people call me names at college, loads of it, but there is a
difference between how that situation happened. People never
say nice things any more, that is the difference.
Just because people cried does not mean to say they are any less
capable of doing a job, it shows they are emotional and care about
it. When you feel passionately about it, as you obviously do, that
is why they cried. When people said nice things to me I used to crack.
I cried all the time! We will see that later tonight! Who wants to
say something about the film, about Ben's performance? De gentlemen in
the white shirt. My name is Ben. I think young people are ready to
fail, not succeed just yet. What does that mean? We don't think, I
want to be an astronaut, and do everything we can to follow our
dreams when we are young. I think we just kind of give up. How does
that relate to what happened to Ben? I have taken so much negative
feedback, if you want that go to an art school, listen to them looking
at your work from the heart and soul, they tear it apart, but it
improves you and I do agree with negative feedback because it
improves your as an artist completely. Let me just say a
couple of points. The gentlemen on the second row. I just wanted to
single out Ben's performance. I wanted to literally give you a
round of applause. I thought it was really inspiring. I am a law
student and I run a social enterprise myself, and for you to
show that bravery and that passion, I thought that was very inspiring
for me. You are a maverick, definitely a leader, and we need
more people like you, to show passion. There is nothing wrong
with passion. You are a maverick! Richard Reed from Innocent
smoothies. Thank you for coming tonight, you have a very successful
company. We will talk about university later, but your thoughts
on the fare on? I thought they did very well. -- on the film. You have
not done the job before, you don't know what it is to be a manager.
You attacked it with gusto. On the first day, taking errors. A big
error, leaving to buy fruit, but that is easy to say in the studio.
If you are in the studio -- if you are in the shop, it makes sense.
During last night's show, Up For Hire trend it nationally on Twitter
and one topic came up more than any other, with graduates saying they
were they forgotten unemployed. They had too little experience for
the job they wanted but were over- qualified for entry-level jobs that
they needed. That came up in a discussion last night as well and
got a big reaction. They think they are stuck between a rock and a hard
place. Who in this room is a graduate and wishes they weren't?
Who thinks that their degree was a waste of time? The lady with her
hand up. Basically, I think I wasted probably about four years of
my life studying my degree. What was your degree? Broadcast media. I
came out to be told I do not have enough experience. I am thinking I
should have spent those four years getting experience, rather than
being taught nothing that will help me when I get out. Anyone else
think university was a waste of time? It I am not joking when I say
to university I went to was a stable of manure. I did a
multimedia core. Don't name it! course I did, we know it to be
Mickey Mouse now, eight years on I have a number of growing businesses,
but not one skill that I learned was from university. What was the
degree? Multimedia and video production. Media degrees are often
called Mickey Mouse. Why is it that your fault for picking the degree?
I thought, the tutors would not get a job in the real world. Being a
tutor is a job in the real world! Do real people are being paid and
getting a wards. I can only talk personally from my course --
getting awards. Katie Hopkins, tell us your view on this. Do you think
people are taking pointers degrees? Absolutely, there are too many
degrees being offered to students that should not be taking them,
institutions that should not be allowed to offer degrees that have
not got the credibility to be offering degrees to students that
are actually taking students up a very bad road, misleading students
now at �9,000 a year. What sort of degrees are a way squares to map --
are a waste? Mickey Mouse degrees like media studies, for one, sports
science would be a great one. Gulf Management would be another! People
always say the obvious ones. Social sciences would be another. If he
were a former polytechnic, blow yourself up. There are too many
institutions we do not need. Labour said we should have 50% of young
people at university, we cannot find jobs for them, it is a waiter
of time. You are turning this into a political rally -- a waste of
time. People always pick media, what about history of art? Anything
related to academic excellence. Isn't it a hobby? It is academic.
Let's go to the lady here. Going back to what Katz, I am in a degree
at the moment, and I am thinking of dropping out because I do not think
the degree will be beneficial to me and I am thinking of starting in a
career and getting experience rather than having a degree because
it does not seem it will get me anyway. What is your degree?
started with journalism and have changed to art. What are people
saying online, Tina? This is getting a lot of reaction online.
One viewer said, I regret going to university because what I learned
does not get applied in practice. People think it will pay off, but
it is a life. Let's get another comment. -- it is a lie. Johnny
disagrees, he says the life skills and experience are invaluable and
you will become more employable if that economy recovers. Chloe, you
are keen to come in. I have chosen to abstain from university despite
achieving two A*s, and and a B in my A-levels, because -- because a
degree no longer guarantees a job. You gotA* A levels, isn't it a
waste of talent? I am hoping to go into talent Management, TV
productions. You don't need a degree for that! The lady next to
you in. If you want to do something like TB production, management, a
lot of people will need the work experience and you often won't get
that without a degree. You think she should go to university? It is
not right for everybody but you often will not get the experience
without a degree. I have only had one negative e-mail regarding not
having a degree, and that e-mail differentiated me from the crowd,
even though it was negative, so it is might US people stop that is
interesting, people assume you will not get anywhere. A positive story,
which is good. Richard said he went out today and handed out see thes,
went to every shop asking for work, even if it was just a temporary
work, and he says he has an interview on Thursday. You have to
keep motivated. Keep telling us your stories, get in touch with us.
You have got half an hour to get your comments on the light wall.
People leaving university and expecting to walk in a job is a
theme that has come up. We will continue this debate later.
You probably know that you do not need a degree to present TV shows,
which is just as well, because if you did, I would not be doing this
now. And I am not the only one... Degree or no degree, a difficult
one. Do I think people should have decreased? A degree is the best
option. No! Always go to university. The things I learned a university I
learned from being in the student union. So many brilliant people
have not been to university. People with a trade are comfortable right
now. Some people enjoy education. It is not what you know, it is who
you know. I didn't go to university, look where I am now. If I went to
university I would probably be the Prime Minister right now. I am in a
dressing-room at the BBC without a toilet.
Keith Lemon, thank you. Edith Bowman is here. You were
dying to say more during that debate. There are so many things, I
agree with the experience thing, it is a vicious circle of you have to
have experience to get a job but need a job to get experience, and I
found that. I went a weird route to university, I came out of school
thinking a wanted to do one job, decided I did not want to, did a
diploma at college income indications today's, which gave me
a path going, this is what I want to do -- a diploma at college in
communications to the East. There could not have been much that you
learned on that which was good for your job? No, but because I did not
know what I wanted to do, there is not an application form you right
to become a TV or radio presenter. When I went to university, I pretty
much stalked the local controller to give me work experience and I
knew it was what I needed to get as well as doing let is but constantly
sending applications and not getting anywhere, you eventually
got some might? In some ways, that is a work ethic -- you eventually
got somewhere. Don't take no for an answer. My mum recently sent me
some stuff, and in it was a fault of rejection letters, so many
different types of jobs -- a folder of rejection letters. It gave me a
fool to keep going. And to the guy who put you on the radio and
eventually? He said he would never put a person with an accent like
mine on the radio! I tend to agree with him! Scottish people should
not be on the radio! Edith Bowman, Up For Hire Live has teamed up with
seven UK businesses to offer life placements throughout the show. We
have had over 800 applications for just 23 opportunities. That is
confirmation of just how tough things are today. That is a
headline from a newspaper today. So Starbucks and Argos last night
hired 10 of our applicants. Tonight it is the 10th of Hilton world wide.
And here is the man in charge. -- the turn.
That is a startling headline. It is worse in some parts of the country.
What is it like for you guys at the moment? Are you getting a lot of
applications for every single job? We are. But we're opening a lot of
new hotels and we are recruiting a lot of people all around the
country. Tell us about the standard of applications that you received.
Generally they were good. There were some obvious mistakes such as
lack of preparation. Where people have not completed their
application form. Or they do not have the right spelling or grammar.
Alex from Starbucks was here last night and spoke about people being
over-qualified. That got a big reaction online. If someone came to
you with the first in classics from Oxford, would you turn them down?
Not necessarily. I recognise that that can be a problem. Why would it
be a problem? If you are an employer you want to see the person
passionate for the job that you have on offer. If they can't
explain that then absolutely, we would employ them. You were
impressed with a lot of the applications. Yes and because of
that standard we have been able to offer six placements instead of the
three. We are talking full-time jobs and these could turn into
long-term careers. Absolutely. Now, over here is our workshop. It
is where many audience members have been wandering in and out for
advice from employment experts. Tonight there are going to focus on
interviews. We are actually talking about interview advice. This young
lady has then interview next week. So we're talking about the
importance of the selling yourself. What kind of questions would you
anticipate for becoming an elf for Santa? I want the job because I am
enthusiastic and I love Christmas and dressing up. Also being
involved with the children and making them smile. What more do you
need? You have ticked every box! You can come to the studio this
week and get some advice. Now we can go back to the shop floor and
are unemployed career fast trackers. It is now the second day of their
ultimate test. Can they turn things around and get the tills ringing?
The new managers have their next challenge and it is all about the
money. Yesterday I had criticism for my managerial skills so today
there is more pressure on me. Today there will be more of a managerial
role for me. Each of the stories has a different daily financial
target. �4,600. Hopefully people will come and try the product.
they have to do is reach it. could reach �4,000 by a 3 o'clock.
Definitely a challenge. Chris is hoping to set the tills ringing
with a group pampering session. it will be pure personal arm
massager. Chris is doing a lovely job with
the girls. He made us feel very welcome. I do not think anyone has
ever sold that much. It is not natural!
It is Brighton Pride. At the moment the parade is going straight past
the shop. Lots going on outside and we are construed in the shop not
having anything to do. It would be great to take advantage of the fact
that there are crowds on the doorstep. The managers can check
their takings at any time. It is OK. But unless we have a really big go
and, we're not getting -- big boom. I want to take most of these things
off and have the perfume display. It is different to yesterday, I am
more hands on. I do not know how they are taking it, we will find
out at the end of the day. I feel he was so much more confident and
in control. You do not want him to a serious. -- too serious. I don't
like it. 1900. They're not good at all, no point even making excuses.
They say it is quiet but there are people everywhere. We need to get
people coming in to the store. The store might now is quiet and that
is not making me happy. We want the crowds to rush in so let us go and
do that. Today I will be pampered by these
fabulous strong men. I think the idea to go outside was excellent.
It got people interested. It is quite a good tactic so you can
actually see the product being used. I enjoyed myself and I think it was
good. I want to check the till. �1,429. Not quite on target.
number we finished on was �3,400. It was OK, but it is really quite
low. There is massive room for improvement. You need to be more
positive. People do feel you need to be more decisive. It is a new, I
can see it. Even though it you have not hit the today, all in all it
has been a better day for you today. You listened to my feedback from
the first day. That may have seemed harsh at the time that you learned
from Europe mistakes. -- but you learned from your mistakes.
have done �5,000. You beat the takings from last year. Are you
joking? I think if the kids saw me now with
a smile on my face they would be proud of me. I am so happy. I want
to come back from a hard day off work and say that I can't afford to
take you out. Without having to check how much everything costs all
the time. Just give them for life that they deserve. This whole
process is part of that. Sacha, everyone. Well done. Tears
of happiness. Yes, after the Adventure Park, it let out all that
emotion and now I cannot get it back in! You were talking about
what it means to you and you want to have a job to make your children
proud. The process is to learn. I did all the college staff. So now I
have done something else and this is a different process. Finding out
where I am and what I want to do. Chris, did you learn anything?
learnt all the time, every day there is something new. Learnt to
touch people up! No, I learned how to delegate and be in control.
Kirsty, what about you? I love Lush. It is an ethical business. So I
particularly enjoyed it. But with management, I did not feel
comfortable delegating. And I feel with management you work your way
up and I would have liked a bit more training. Ben, you are smiling.
The feedback that I got in the first day, I took that on board and
used it was Dr Richard Reid, what did you make of that? Well a couple
of things stand out. Ben, best improvement. You listened to the
feedback and moved on. But Sacha, I love what happened there. Because
you were down halfway through the day and then sought, I am going to
change that. That is being a proper entrepreneur. Good for you. A lot
of enthusiastic agreement behind me. Because he owns the company!
Have you asked him for commission? So well done everyone. Andi Osho,
what did you make of that? I think they did brilliantly. Especially
Ben, you took on the feedback. And I think most people who have not
worked in a management role, I do not know that they would do better
at regardless of if they were graduates or not. Well we're going
to open this debate out a little bit. And have a discussion about
what would make a good boss. Who would like to contribute? My name
is Ricky. I would like to comment on the managerial skills of Sacha.
I think she was good. A lot of managers would say, it is not going
well, you do something while I sit here. She gave that job to herself
which proved to her team that she is willing to do the jobs that she
expects them to do. And also she... Obviously she has got children and
I think she is doing it for a bigger purpose. I think that pushed
her a little bit more. A survey came out recently saying that 7
million people have walked out of a job because they do not like their
boss. Has anyone here dam at? done that? I used to work in a
five-star hotel in central London. And it was a horrible atmosphere.
Every time I go into a restaurant nowadays I appreciate them. It was
so aggressive. Did you not learn a lot? I did and did did strengthen
me. But the way they treat people. I understand that they have to
deliver thousands of meals. And now I have progressed in my career and
I employee 100 people. I say you have to take your initial steps.
What you start off as in your People are talking about young
people being good managers. Dawn was a manager at 21, she says she
did as good a job as older members of staff. Scott had to oversee
about 50 older ladies, he said it was hard work and he had to change
the way he acted so he did not attend them. They were worlds apart,
and he left. My autocue is not in the right
place, but someone will tell me what we are going to and it will
happen! That is it. We like to take you behind the scenes! This week,
Up For Hire has teamed up with seven big employers to offer life
changing paid jobs to people out of work. Tonight, Hilton Worldwide's
10. They interviewed 16 of the 141 people who applied for their jobs
as few weeks ago. If you have an interview coming up, get your note
pad and pencil at the ready. We are looking for a combination of
things today, somebody with passion full-service, creativity, a good
team player, and somebody with personality. You send out a CV and
very rarely get a reply. I have waited for this opportunity.
atmosphere is quite tense. I have been at home for three months
looking for work, I am dying for a job. What is your worst quality?
worst quality... Everyone says they don't have one, it is hard to
choose. You can give me an example of when you have worked for a
difficult person. Well... At a lot of the people that I served late at
night had a lot of alcohol in their system. He dropped a full tray of
drinks on a custom. I would analyse the situation. As well as on a
customer's white's dress. He pushed an old woman over. I would always
go to a supervisor. When someone is angry like that, let them get it
off their chest. Don't let it get out of hand. And I got some
flowers! Have you had any major problems way you have had to come
up with a solution? A solution? am an organisation freak! It is
important in an office environment to help other people out. I have
lists all around my room. People should be trained. People stand
there and do nothing. You can't be a leader and say, you have to deal
with that, it is your problem. are a role model. Having no GCSEs
has affected me. I feel like when they ask me, do I tell them, this
is why I left school, or do I say it was a personal reason. I left
school a year early, some girls did not like me and I started getting
panic attacks. I went back because I was not going to let them ruin
Mike school time. It is the first proper interview I have done, so if
I get it I will be very pleased. Fingers crossed, it will be a long
wait. My feet are really hurting! And here with us are a lot of the
guys who applied and we saw being interviewed there. That was an
interesting point, that you made, it scared of revealing personal
information but you decided to do it? A lot of people do not have
GCSEs when they leave school so I wanted to put it out that you can
still go for a job and try your hardest, and Hilton Worldwide did
not mind. Have you done interviews before and not revealed it? I have
never revealed it. You don't regret it? It is showing a human side as
well that may be an interviewer will respond to it. Charlotte, you
interviewed for the job. How long had he been out of work? It I
graduated in July, so I have been searching since then. I studied
French and Spanish so I have it's - - I it had looked in other
countries as well. But to no avail. What would the job mean to you?
would be amazing, incredible. I have been searching for a long time,
just hanging about the house, working in a pub, which is great
for now, but you need something! career. It would be amazing.
long have you been out of workers macro about the same, I graduated
in July. Why do you want this job? It is something that has great
prospects for the long term. Sitting at home doing nothing, do
you find it hard to deal with? There are days when it is difficult
to motivate yourself to apply for jobs and things, but on the whole,
it is a case of trying to stay positive. Danielle, how long have
you been out of work? I finished university in June. Why would you
like the job? It would be a new experience, I have been sat at home
for four months, it has been depressing, and I have been
applying for jobs every day, which is a job in itself. Do a lot of
people not respond? You sale at an application which will take all day,
and you do not hear from the job -- you will fill out an application.
We met Rob from Hilton Worldwide earlier, you had three placements
initially, a three-month full-time job. He boosted at 26 because you
were impressed with the applications. -- you boosted that-6.
You guys know who got the job, but I don't know, so tell us who got
the jobs. I am pleased to welcome our 6 nitty members, or near,
Danielle, Jenna, Danielle, Charlotte and Rory.
Welburn! You explained the divisions in the roles, they are
non graduate positions and some are graduate positions. You have a
degree and went for the non- graduate job? That does not trouble
you? No, I am keen to work, why shouldn't I? Because I have a
degree does not mean I cannot apply for a non-graduate role. Looking at
the Feedback last night, there are some people who do not have degrees
who get annoyed when people with degrees go for non-graduate jobs.
Does anyone get annoyed by that? Can you sympathise with that?
the end of the day, at any job that is going and you are interested in,
I would love the opportunity to work for Hilton, and I have been
given it. I saw the chance, and even though it is non-graduate, it
does not mean I cannot apply, so I went for it. What does this mean to
you? It means the world. As Danielle said, with a degree, I
don't think it should be an employer's distinction between
offering a job and not offering a job. I have got a degree as well,
but I have experience so I thought I would go for it.
Good luck in your new career, everyone.
Do you mind if I throw you out of your seat temporarily? I will not
literally throw you! Patrick, you are one of the people who was
interviewed and did not get the job. Are you OK about that? Yes, I'm OK
about that. Was it worth going to the interview? Did you learn
anything? I really meant different things from the inner city. It is
about the process of the interview. In human resources, process is the
key thing, that is the individual stop commiserations and good luck
