TEENAGER Louise Coates will be able to shop around for a new outfit while waiting to find out if her job applications are successful.

Louise was one of 1,000 East Lancashire school leavers who attended the XTEND Jobs 98 at Ewood Park and Turf Moor events to find out about career opportunities.

"I originally wanted to go to college and only went to Turf Moor out of curiosity," said Louise of St John Fisher & St Thomas More High School.

But, after attending the open night - at which she won £100 in clothing vouchers in a prize draw - Louise applied for two Modern Apprenticeships in business administration with the Marsden Building Society and Airtours.
