Millie came into YES wanting to start her career. She was ready and willing to work hard but just couldn’t find the right opportunities and struggled to understand where she was going wrong. Millie worked with Simon for a short period to look at her CV and areas where she needed support. Millie said she gave up looking for a job because her confidence was knocked after not hearing back from companies. Since starting with Simon, Millie had regular sessions which looked at her CV, interview techniques and much more. Simon encouraged Millie to apply for an apprenticeship role which she never thought of doing and was offered the role. ‘I applied for a Job that Simon suggested I go for and I got the job!’
‘I feel more confident because I didn’t think I would be able to be successful in an interview let alone get the job. Simon gave me a template and supported me on how to answer questions and give me confidence to be successful in that interview.’
Not only has Millie gained more confidence in her ability but been able to secure a job she cannot wait to start. Good Luck Millie.
Comments from Millie:
‘My journey with YES has been really good, I have got a job quicker than I ever thought I would. Before starting with YES, I had loads of companies not getting back to me and Simon gave me loads of options and had companies coming back to me after applying because I had a better CV and more support’.
‘Before YES, the biggest barrier for me was I didn’t get on with college, and I felt like it was stopping me from progressing’.
