The service is good and supportive. I found the workshops I attended very useful and there was always the offer of follow up support. My adviser was friendly and helpful and gave me confidence.

The National Careers has helped me save time researching anything work related. It has improved my confidence because before I was hesitant trying things I wasn’t sure about, but now I tend to give it a go. It has helped me understand the job market better, which has also helped my confidence.

I was able to walk away from my National Careers Service meeting with not only a clear action plan, but also someone to immediately be there to help me through my actions. I then explained to my adviser that I would be referring friends to the service, as it has helped me so much after one session.

Whilst creating my CV, I was able to consider the different skills that I have and how to apply them to different opportunities. I feel I am in a better position to apply for jobs, as my CV looks complete and more professional.
