Crash course on how to get a job


Unemployed graduates are being given a crash course in how to get a job in a new government funded project in East London.

Funded under Labour it is aimed at students leaving university with qualifications but without practical skills to get a job.

Nikesh Lalji is one of those participants who told the BBC that "after two years of applying to jobs continuously, my confidence has been shattered".

The Fastlaners Project Leader Cate Newnes-Smith hopes the course will provide "hard" and "soft" skills many graduates are lacking.

BBC Asian Network reporter Catrin Nye had exclusive access to the programme.
