Landing my first graduate role - Emilia's story
"From the beginning, I have been treated with respect… I did not realise it was going to have as massive an impact as it has now because the service has changed my life and improved my confidence. I have had support with my CV - creating and updating two different versions; looking over draft supporting statements, including guidance on how to address the job specification in the way employers require."
Emilia worked with our advisers to make her applications stand out and her interview techniques shine, she was also encouraged to consider temporary work areas that would build on her range of skills and experience. And now, having successfully secured her role in events support at the Cabinet Office, Emilia is set up strong to embrace the range of training development opportunities available in the work place.
Reflecting on her experience of accessing the service as a student with a disability, Emilia - who has a visual impairment - explained that she found "the service was very accommodating to my needs and took them into consideration… you feel really supported and there is that sense of a supportive network. They want you to succeed and there is that sense of genuine care".
