According to Phil Flaxton, chief executive of Work Wise UK, people can help to make up for certain gaps in their employment history or academic background by demonstrating that they can adapt and complete a wide range of tasks.
Nowadays, a person's background is unlikely to have any baring on their job prospects if they can illustrate their work ethic, drive and determination, he explained.
"Whether you come from a privileged background or an underprivileged background - if you are more determined to work and you are prepared to be adaptable to what you do, then it's not guaranteed that you will find work, but you are more likely to," Mr Flaxton pointed out.
The expert added that these candidates will have more success than somebody who is not prepared to put themselves out during the working day and is therefore less likely to stand out for the right reasons.
