28. LOCAL VOCALS SPECIAL

SUPANOVA FORMED: 2012 MEMBERS: Harris Hiscoe (17) Christy O’Donnell (17) Gregor Coleman (19) FROM: Glasgow

Supanova have a strong pop sound with catchy tunes like Paranoid (For You). Video: youtube.com/supanovaofficial

Tell us how Supanova started? H: We are still very new as a band but have already established a strong sound. Harris had an empty for a month and we used this time to rehearse constantly.

HARRIS CHRISTY GREGOR You are quite a young band, around the same age group as One Direction when they first started out. Do you still use your Glasgow Young Scot Cards?

C: We love music and write all of our own songs! G: Harris and Christy were dating identical twins, and met one night when Christy came in to what he thought was his girlfriend cheating on him – but it was just Harris with the twin sister! I met the guys after a gig I was performing at with Daniel Docherty.

All: Yes!

What do you use as inspiration for your songs?

G: Free swimming!

H: You can normally find us sitting around my kitchen table jamming coming up with new material! C: Most of our songs are about girls and relationships. I’ve had my heart broken too many times... G: We are best friends and always together, so write about the experiences that we have together.

What made you decide that you wanted to be part of a band? H: My favourite thing to do is jam at the kitchen table with my guitar and a group of friends! C: I used to be a Hollister model but I prefer singing and like hanging about with these guys all the time! G: I have always been interested in music and drama. I used to be part of the PACE theatre group.

GRIDMAG.CO.UK

What do you use them for? H: Topman discount! C: I once gave mine to a girl and asked her to add me on Facebook... unfortunately she never did!

What do Supanova fans have to look forward to in the near future?

RAINBOW DISSOLVE

LOCAL VOCALS SPECIAL .29

FORMED: 2010 MEMBERS: Fraser Macpherson / Lead Vocals, Guitar, Keys Dorian Cloudsley / Lead Guitar, Keys Angus Tikka / Bass, Backing Vocals Mark Scobbie / Drums FROM: Glasgow

Rainbow Dissolve are an alternative rock band that sound like a young Radiohead. They are all very talented musicians who have the musical ability to surprise you with interchangeable haunting melodies like single Her Downward Spiral. Check out the videos taken from their gig at the O2 Academy on YouTube: wwww.youtube.com/rainbowdissolve

Tell us a bit about your band?

We’re a 4 piece alternative rock band based in Glasgow. Fraser and Dorian first met at Langside college back in 2008 when studying at the HNC Music course. They then recruited  Angus and Mark when Dorian met them in joining the BA in applied music course at Strathclyde University. We have been gigging for the best part of a year now. Our debut EP ‘Wall of Eyes’ was released digitally in February of this year.

Some advice for other aspiring bands?

Try and take creative control of your music and do as much as you can yourselves. It is very easy (and free) to set up a Facebook or Soundcloud account and showcase your music to the rest of the country and the world with just a few clicks of the mouse. Using a ‘DIY’ method will be a lot quicker and cost effective. Also write the material you like and are passionate about, don’t try and fit in with musical trends for the sake of it, be true to yourselves and that will show in the music you produce.

What makes your band different from others in the Glasgow music scene?

What’s on the agenda for the rest of 2012?

The music itself is very unique and different in comparison to most of the local Glasgow bands that you hear in the scene at the moment. We draw our influences from a very diverse range of artists, so it is very hard to categorise or pigeon hole our sound. You just have to listen! We are currently in the studio recording our second EP which we hope to release by the end of the year.

Which band do you most look up to?

Radiohead are our biggest influence. They are a band that have changed direction with every record to keep things fresh, something which we feel is a great way to keep a band going. Radiohead have been around for more than 20 years and are still producing outstanding music today. We want to still be relevant in 20 years time!

How can readers find out more about you?

We are on Facebook, Soundcloud and Bandcamp. Our ‘Wall of Eyes’ EP is available for free download on our Bandcamp page! www.rainbowdissolve.bandcamp.com www.facebook.com/rainbowdissolve

34. CAREERS

CREATING YOUR FIRST CV FROM THE EMPLOYER’S POINT OF VIEW…

Often Human Resources (HR) departments handle the first stage of recruitment and so rather than looking for the best candidate they are creating a short list of people who have the right key words in their CV. So, save your personality for the cover letter and the interview and use your CV to tick those necessary HR boxes. Whether you are updating a current CV or creating a new one from scratch, you can use the following checklist to make sure you’ve got everything covered.

We are working with the experts at My World of Work to provide you with top careers advice, and this issue will focus on how to develop a Curriculum Vitae (CV). Job vacancies attract a large number of applicants so if you want to get that interview it’s important your CV stands out. Every CV you create should be tailored to the job you are applying for by matching your skills, experience and qualifications to the employer’s requirements.

1. CONTACT DETAILS

It’s important to provide a range of contact options including your home address, your main phone number and your email address to make it easy for employers to get in touch with you.

2. EMPLOYMENT HISTORY

Make sure to include the jobs that are relevant to the position you are applying for. If you haven’t had much relevant experience however, you may want to include your whole work history. WHAT IF I HAVE NO WORK EXPERIENCE?

Think broadly about your past experience. Have you ever done any voluntary work, babysitting, organised an event, made and sold art and craft items or performed in a play or band? Change the name of the section to work experience, list your examples and your responsibilities within each role. Don’t give up if you can’t think of anything. Remove that section from your CV and use the extra space to emphasise your skills, strengths and desire to find a job.

3. EDUCATION AND QUALIFICATIONS

Your education and qualifications may not be directly related to the job you are applying for, but they are still important achievements that employers will want to see.

My World of Work users Not adding a personal statement

41%

Not tailoring it to the role you're applying for

54%

Not checking the spelling and grammar

4. SKILLS AND STRENGTHS

Emphasising your skills and strengths is vital when building a CV. A strength is something you’re naturally good at. A skill is something you acquire with education and experience. Make sure to demonstrate how your skills and strengths will help you to do well in the job.

5. YOUR PERSONALITY

Your CV should follow a fairly standard format and the interview is where your personality is really important, but you can still stand out from the crowd with the language you use. For example, this statement represents a hard-working, passionate person: “A hardworking individual with a passion for all things fashion seeks part-time job in the retail industry.”

6. A PRIORITISED LAYOUT

The way you layout your CV will depend on your age and work experience level. The My CV tool on www.myworldofwork.co.uk allows you to choose between a work-focused or education-focused template. If you don’t have much work experience or you’re looking for a career change, you should place your skills and strengths section before employment and education.

HOW MY WORLD OF WORK CAN HELP YOU… • Get the latest information and advice on careers and job-hunting • Create attention-grabbing CVs in a few simple steps • Find out what careers you’re suited to using the My Strengths tool • Search for courses and jobs

7. A GOOD SIMPLE FORMAT

Unless you’re going for a highly creative job, getting too fancy with fonts and borders will only take the focus from the important information in your CV.

8. GOOD SPELLING AND PUNCTUATION

There’s no room for poor spelling and punctuation in either your cover letter or your CV. Keep sentences short to avoid confused punctuation and, if you can, give it to a friend to check it over. Spell check should be the very last thing you do before sending it off.

9. REFERENCES AVAILABLE ON REQUEST

You don’t have to include references in your CV and leaving them out will save you space, but make sure to state at the end of your CV that they are available on request.

10. A COVER LETTER

Most employers will expect a cover letter with your CV. It gives you a chance to get across your personality, ambition and to explain any gaps in your CV. For more information, help and advice about your CV visit:

36. REAL LIFE

REAL LIFE

It is estimated that one in 10 people in the UK are carers

YOUNG CARERS The Princess Royal Trust for Carers in Scotland is part of Carers Trust, a charity which provides support services for carers and young carers. Young carers are children and young people under the age of 18 who look after someone in their family who has an illness, disability, drug/alcohol addiction or mental health condition.

WHY DO CARERS NEED SUPPORT?

Caring is rarely something you can plan for. Today, one in ten people in the UK are carers (1 in 8 in Scotland). But over the next 30 years, as more of us live for longer, the number of carers will increase by 3.4 million. Anyone could be a carer – a 15-year-old girl looking after a parent with an alcohol problem, a 40-year-old man caring for his partner who has terminal cancer, or an 80-year-old woman looking after her husband who has Alzheimer’s disease. Carers all make enormous sacrifices, often putting aside their education, careers, social lives, and even their health, in order to care.

The Princess Royal Trust for Carers in Scotland (part of Carers Trust) works with young carers services across Scotland to: Promote awareness of young carers Campaign for them and services for young carers Provide grants and funding for services Work with educational services to benefit young carers We also organise the annual Scottish Young Carers Festival on behalf of the Scottish Government. If you work with children and young people and you’d like information about young carers, we have lots of information and resources available here: www.professionals.carers.org/young-carers www.youngcarers.net www.erycandtrayc.com Telephone Carers Trust – 0141 221 5066

REAL LIFE. 37

ADaniiREAL STORY is a young carer who provides support to her Mum who

suffers from mental and physical health issues including Type 1 Diabetes and a physical disability. As the oldest child in their home, Danii is there for physical support including giving medication, and emotional support as a friend to her Mum during her more difficult days. At only 16 years old Danii is a very inspiring young woman. Here is her story.

I have experienced many ups and downs...but I know that I’m helping my family Hello, my name is Danii and I am 16 years old... Some of my interests include different styles of dancing and sports like swimming. My experience being a young carer.. Is unique to me because it is a member of my family that I help care for. I have experienced many ups and downs including the emotional side of things, but on the other hand it gives me a feeling of satisfaction because I know that I’m helping out my family. I provide quite complex care for my Mum every day... I administer her medication, I let her sleep for as long as she needs (that can sometimes be for the whole day and night) meaning that I will look after my two little sisters to let her regain the energy she needs. I attend hospital and doctors’ appointments with her, I provide a physical ‘crutch’ because she sometimes has difficulties walking so I am sometimes relied on for her to lean on, literally. I also provide emotional support because sometimes everything gets on top of her and I’m the only other person in the house who she can turn to, so in a way I am also her friend. I think that the biggest difficulty I face caring for my Mum... Would be the fact that she doesn’t see what I see, when she says she is okay I know that she’s not- I know that she is struggling and putting on a brave face. Sometimes she will push herself too far and be really unwell and so she has good days and bad days.

The Scottish Young Carers Festival is organised annually by The Princess Royal Trust For Carers In Scotland to give them a chance to meet other young carers. And of course to let their hair down! East Renfrewshire Carers’ Centre and the Carers Trust have helped me out a lot... I instantly made friends with the others because they are carers just like me and they understood without an explanation unlike my friends. Group nights and one-to-one sessions are fun and provide invaluable support which gives the chance to get your feelings off your chest and speak to them about your home life, knowing that they are trustworthy and listen to you. I was recently involved in doing peer education workshops with young carers in different high schools which has helped my confidence and self-esteem. I attended Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend through the Carers Trust... I also attended the Scottish Young Carers Festival this year. These events allow us to enjoy ourselves and also let us have a break from home. Being a young carer has impacted my life in various ways... It has made me a more responsible and mature person because of the caring role I have. I have also discovered skills that I did not know I had through caring. Because of these I have decided that in the future I want to work in the care sector. One of the problems that I was faced with at the start of becoming a young carer was that my friends didn’t understand me when I said “I can’t”, and so it did cause me to drift away from many of them but the ones who were there, and did understand, are the people I’m still friends with today!

3 in 5 people will become a carer in their lifetime GRIDMAG.CO.UK
