Since graduating from university in September, my cousin, Fabian, has been job-hunting and has applied for several positions. As well as having excellent academic qualifications, he has great skills such as speaking two languages, and he’s really good at solving IT problems. The only drawback for Fabian is that he hasn’t got any work experience because he has only just finished his studies. Unfortunately, his father was made redundant last month so both father and son are currently out of work. I’m lucky to have a permanent contract so my job is fairly secure but I’m also off work at the moment. It’s for a good reason though – I’ve been on paternity leave since the birth of my son last week!
