As all activity is delivered virtually, we can currently support people based anywhere in the South West of England. I’ve attached our menu of forthcoming workshops that you can refer your service users to. The sessions are interactive and one definitely not to miss is the LinkedIn workshop, with the opportunity to gain valuable advice from an HR professional at Ricoh, one of our supporting businesses.
Here’s some participant feedback from our rolling programme of Ready for Workshops that your service users may be interested to hear:
I definitely found the session very useful. Very good and solid information about the different types of interviews, the best ways to prepare for them and how to put oneself across.
It really brought home to me the importance of research and preparation. Also, that first impressions are the main things any potential employer has to go by, so it pays to be accurate in one’s presentation.
All four sessions really helped to bring me up to speed about job searching and cv writing for the current employment market. It was useful and encouraging to meet with other job seekers online. That way we could feed off each other and see what was working and what wasn’t, since some people were further along in their job-search than others.
I enjoyed the online interaction and it was lovely to have some human connection with like-minded people (i.e. jobseekers). It reminded me of my old professional, working self and that I only need to apply myself to the task, in order to potentially gain positive results.
The course helped me to feel optimistic about my job possibilities and made me realise that everyone has something valuable which they can contribute to the workforce. I am very pleased that I got to take part in it, so thank you.
