Nineteen-year-old Chloe had a remarkable academic track record highlighted by triple distinction in her Level 3 Business course at Suffolk One. Her dedication and hard work earned her recognition as the most improved student of the year during her time at college but she was at a standstill.
Despite her academic achievements, Chloe faced challenges in navigating the transition from education to the workplace. She struggled to find a job or apprenticeship that aligned with her interests and aspirations and didn’t know what to do to move on to the next stage of her life.
Chloe’s path crossed with Youth Employment Coach, Simon, during a CV workshop in Felixstowe. Recognising Chloe’s potential, Simon provided personalised support in refining her CV and navigating the job market. With the help of YES, Chloe gained confidence and direction in searching and applying for jobs.
Thanks to Simon’s guidance, Chloe successfully secured a position with A&S Recruitment – a testament to her perseverance and the effectiveness of the support we provide young people each and every day. Chloe’s journey from uncertainty to employment shows the importance of support and guidance for young people at transitional periods in their lives.
Chloe’s journey serves as inspiration for others navigating the transition from education to the workforce, and shows the value of mentorship and support in achieving professional goals.
