FAQs for individuals - Sort Your Future
How is Sort different to other careers sites?
We know there are other careers sites out there and some of them do a great job, but we wanted to do something a bit different with Sort. Instead of designing Sort to appeal to teachers, parents, and careers advisers and to tick the Government's career education boxes, we designed Sort to put you in charge.
First off, Sort is a private space. No one else can see what you're looking at in there, you don't have to speak to employers directly and you don't have to create a CV or profile with all your achievements. When you're just starting out in your career you might not have a full CV or a big list of achievements - that doesn't matter in Sort.
We've tried to make Sort an easy way to discover career options and opportunities based on what you are interested in and what you're like as a person. If you want to take the next step and apply for an opportunity that's up to you. You can save a whole range of different options (most people don't know what they want to do - it's normal, it's a good thing ) and you can change your mind as often as you like.
We also want to know how we can make Sort better. If you've got ideas, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org - we'd love to know what you'd like to see us do next.
Is Sort free?
Do I have to create an account?
Where does your careers information come from?
We've used a combination of the UK Government's published open-source labour market information under license and our own research from a range of sources to create what we believe is the most comprehensive and user-friendly career discovery database available. We always want to improve though, so we'd love to hear your suggestions for ways in which we can make it even better. Please email us at email@example.com
