Trials and Tribulations
Now that the universities, colleges and schools are all out for summer, a lot of students and young people are scrambling furiously for work. With countless applicants to choose from, a lot of employers assess suitability through workplace trials. The food and drink industry in particular, tend to favour trials.

Here we have a look at what to expect from such trials, and how applicants can prepare for them.
