Young people in the UK, including those hoping to find work in London, should consider entrepreneurial opportunities while they are unemployed, one expert has suggested.
Denise Taylor, a career psychologist for amazingpeople.co.uk, explained having a gap on a person's CV while they look for employment will look better if they work for themselves during this period.
She said: "Firstly, you're going to learn how to sell because again, I think in all sorts of jobs, you need to be able to persuade and influence and it's really good to show an employer."
Meanwhile, Ms Taylor advised what may seem a temporary measure until full-time employment is found could end up being a permanent career and a serious business venture.
Jason Borg, student engagement officer at Notgoingtouni.co.uk, recently suggested missing out on a place at a university can often be a blessing in disguise, as it could encourage young people to take up a vocational apprenticeship or even set up their own business.
