Richard came into The Learning Shop in September to find out if we could offer him any support with his job search. During his job search, he had been finding he wasn't having much luck with receiving invitations for interviews, although he'd applied for many vacancies. We were pleased to be able to book a one-to-one appointment for that day with our Employability Instructor, Janet.
Richard was very attentive and listened well to the advice offered, from updating his CV layout to how to deliver a great first impression in an interview. During the session he updated key sections on his CV, including his contact details and work history entries, and he refined his personal profile. He also took note of how to navigate our jobsite, register an account and was happy to share his experiences so far, which helped Janet tailor the experience to his needs.
After attending the session at The Learning Shop, Richard applied for various positions and uploaded his CV to a variety of jobsites. Shortly afterwards, his CV was noticed by a prospective employer online, and Richard was invited to an interview. We were so pleased when Richard popped into The Learning Shop with excellent news! He has been offered a job!
Richard said: “Happy for you use my pictures in future, to show other people the help you give and all your colleagues’ help. Thank you again”
Well done Richard!
