LITTLE or no feedback has frustrated one of our jobseekers as he continues to apply for vacant positions.

For Shaukat Ali Nisar has sent out numerous CVs and completed applications to several employers, only to be left wondering why he has not been successful.

The 19-year-old is desperate to find out where he can improve so that he can be more positive in his job search, however with the lack of feedback, the teenager admits to finding it difficult to see what changes to make.

“I’m sending out applications but getting absolutely nothing back. It is disheartening,” said Mr Nisar, of Whitburn Road in Hyde Park.

“I’m just wanting a bit of feedback so that I can take that into my next application or job interview, but it’s frustrating when you don’t receive anything and you’re left not knowing.”

Mr Nisar describes himself as possessing a strong sense of responsibility and offering flexibility, honesty, reliability and a team working ethic.

Mr Nisar is ideally looking for jobs in fashion and retail.

He has already completed work placements at the Co-Operative supermaket and UCC Ultimate Clothing Company in a bid to boost his chances of getting work in retail and mingling with customers.

The former Hall Cross School pupil says he has excellent communication skills and is a good problem solver.

He added: “I want a position that will enable me to develop my career in return for enthusiasm, motivation and the willingness to undertake any further training required by the company offering me a work position.

“I like meeting new people, I can work well in groups and on my own.

“I like all types of fashion and have done since I’ve been at school. I just want to get out there and work now.”
