Christopher Kinsella, acting chief executive at the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), said that young people weighing up their career options following GCSE, A-level and university exam results should think about gaining professional qualifications.
He noted that professional qualifications are available at all levels and can show employers how well the candidate is prepared for the workplace, as well as for a university environment.
"With youth unemployment now at over 20 per cent and record numbers of students fighting for university places through clearing, being able to prove additional skills on your CV or university application can really help you stand out from the crowd," Mr Kinsella added.
Meanwhile, Stephen Hoare, writing for the Independent recently, noted that volunteering is a great way to learn new skills which can add another dimension to a CV to set job candidates apart from the competition.
