Old College Project

When people whinge and moan about having to do work at College, just take a moment to consider the fact that you came to College to get the skills and qualifications to get a better job. Out in the real world, you'll be up against people who really want that job. If you grudgingly answer questions asked, slouch in the chair and show a general lack of indifference, you won't get the job, and you'll have to come up with some excuse as to how it wasn't your fault you didn't get the job. Then you'll shrug, and say that you didn't want the job in the first place.

Or you get real, and wise up. Here is one of former student, Mark Stirton's old college projects:

Put this level of effort into your work; show interest, show flair, show passion for your career. Interview panels can detect this quickly. They can also detect laziness, disinterest and lack of willing. Guess what? So can we. Good luck for the future.
