Ask them?  Send a short polite letter to your contact there and explain that you are preparing yourself to apply again in 6 months because this position would mean so much to you and ask if they have any tips to get you where you need to be.  Next time, they will remember you too.

@HisNightOwl2014:  Entry Level in what? Do you know what part of the in-house assesment you didn’t pass?

@HisNightOwl2014:  You need to be 100% certain, first, that your application was turned down because of your in-house assesment, and not because of another reason.

But as for the classes you need to take? Yes. Take a keyboarding class, and probably a PC Applications class as well… a Marketing/Business class couldn’t hurt, either. I learned more from my “Business Report and Memo Writing” class about the real-world than any other class I ever took. You should be able to at least touch-type before you’ll be hired for most ‘entry level’ stuff involving computers. There are also several websites where you can practice your typing skills, but actually taking the class will be something you can document.

Are you getting another job in between now and your wedding? If you can take a full course load at your local community college, then do that and brush up your skills this next semester. (You can do 16 hours only going to class two days a week.)

I agree with the PP as well. Writing a short letter will do marvels! Please, please, though – leave out the bit about ‘I’ll be reapplying after my honeymoon!’ they won’t want to know about that. 🙂
