Success Stories

“I was so happy and overwhelmed. The feeling of being offered a job is truly amazing.”

As part of our coaching sessions we would run through what to expect in the interview and almost 70 – 80% of the time the questions we would discuss actually came up in the interviews. Once you’ve given that answer before you know exactly what to say. It just gives you that confidence. The real value for me was the coaching sessions. It was really useful to have someone to give you feedback. I applied to 20 different jobs and I got to 3 Assessment Centres. The Arup one was the most difficult but that ended up being the one I got. It just shows you have to keep moving forward no matter what. I got the job offer 2 days after the Assessment Centre. I was in complete shock when I got the phone call. I was so happy and overwhelmed. The feeling of being offered a job is truly amazing.

After an initial consultation with Anika, she matched me with my Coach who had experience in the organisation I actually applied for. The coaching sessions cover quite a few different areas from how to improve your CV, how to identify my strengths, industry specific knowledge and company information and we would go through my interview answers. The biggest benefits of having a careers coach is to have someone help me to identify my strengths and competencies and to build up my confidence. I went to the Assessment Centre and after a week I was offered a job which was on my birthday which was really great. Anika and her team are really genuine, willing to help and they understand how frustrating the situation can be. My advice would be to never give up, just keep trying to be better every day, learn from your mistakes and keep your mind open to different opportunities

“My Coach went above and beyond to help me.”

“Before GCC, I applied to many companies that didn’t sponsor. That’s when I found them online and joined their programme. My issue wasn’t my CV but knowing how to present myself and ace strengths-based interviews, and my Coach Jayde went above and beyond to help me with this.
I got through to 3 Assessment Centres and applied the skills I learnt during the coaching sessions. Just 24 hours after the Assessment Centre, I got a call from the partner offering me a job.

“My advice is to let the professional coaches guarantee your progress”

I decided to join Grad Careers Coach back in December and I gained great support from Re’anne, Lienda, and Anika on my CV, career goals, how to write cover letters, how to promote myself, and how to build my Linkedin profile., I have seen myself making great progress even after half of the coaching sessions.

If you want to gain great success and make the best out of your time, my advice is to let the professional coaches guarantee your progress and the ultimate goal of finding a job with Tier 2 visa sponsorship.

I am really grateful that I got to know this great team and have had great experience and support during the starting point of my career path in the UK.

I had applied to a few jobs before but all I got was rejections and then I went to the first Grad Careers Coach workshop one week into joining the program and it was about branding yourself and interview and I never thought about any of this. I thought about what are my strengths, what is actually my weakness and then I started adding that to my applications and Cover Letter. I am glad that I already had started practicing with my coach Lienda how to answer interview questions and prepare for the next stages. If I hadn’t thought about the real skills I have and how to answer and practice interviews, I wouldn’t have actually gotten this job offer.
