Planning your GAP year may seem a bit daunting, but with Get GAP Ready, gearing up for your adventure is easy peasy.
Summer is here, and it’s time to dive into a new adventure – maybe you’re keen for a change of scenery, or are dying to learn some new skills and make some mates along the way. With the past two years being pretty drab, this is going to be the summer of exploration, and a GAP year is certainly the way to quench that thirst for thrills.
Whichever way you look at it, a GAP year will not only help you branch out after spending so long locked into school, but will help you gain skills that are absolutely unmatched when it comes to uni, such as getting out of your comfort zone, becoming independent, and diving deep into yourself before hitting the ‘big world’. And, with destinations located around the country, you’ll gain a true sense of adventure, and really be able to immerse yourself into different cities, local cultures, and scenes along the way.
Either way, it’s time to look into a gap year program, and with The New GAP Year streamlining things through Get GAP Ready, things have never been easier – taking all the hard work out of looking for the perfect job and destination, and making it where all you’ve got to do is follow a few easy steps.
So, how do you Get GAP Ready? Well, all it takes is subscribing, getting your Gap Ready Card loaded with your skills, and then you’re set to apply to jobs around Australia, bringing the application process into the future where you can streamline all your skills into one simple place and be able to show employers that you’ve got what it takes.
So, how exactly does Get GAP Ready work? Well, before you jump into a new job, you’ll need to ensure that you’re knowledgeable on how to impress potential employers, and that’s where Get GAP Ready does all the hard work for you.
With a simple subscription kicking off at only $25 per year, you’ll get exclusive membership access to the online GAP Ready Card, where you can upload your employability skills and compare them to industries in the market that are looking for employees – kind of like an online resumé where you’ve got everything in the palm of your hand, and can apply to jobs easier so that you’re on your way to your GAP year quicker.
Get GAP Ready will also help you pull together all the information you need for employment into a secure Skills Passport so that you’ve got all your ducks in a row, and can easily apply to jobs without having to re-upload your sensitive documents constantly.
From there, all you’ve got to do from your end is apply for the job you want, and email them across the documents and skills you’ve accumulated in the app, and you’ll be on your way to adventure in whatever sector you’re keen on working in.
With COVID-19 making things a little difficult in terms of state borders still, the app can also help you with your terms of employment once you’ve got a job offer – basically, once your employer sends you a Letter of Offer for a job, you can then figure out the terms of your employment as well as border crossing permits so that you’re squared away.
Lastly, with Get GAP Ready’s Job Start Kit, you can easily send your new boss everything they’ll need in terms of documents to get you started and employed, easing the paperwork hassles on both ends. And, if you end up changing jobs or needing help, you’ve also got a support team 24/7 to dive into and help you easily update your online resume so you can easily apply to potential GAP year opportunities down the line!
So, with a streamlined way to jump into a GAP year, it’s never been easier to explore a new region, gain new skills from different lines of employment, and simply start adventures all within our own backyard.
