Marie’s story

Marie attended the most recent meeting in Barnsley last month and learned the how to successfully create a compelling job application and perform to the best of her ability in an interview situation.

The programme looked at the four key steps to gaining new employment opportunities

  • Starting to understanding what employers want and what you can offer them
  • Learning how sell what you have to offer to employers and getting interview opportunities
  • Learning how to make the most of interviews, getting your message across and getting a job offer
  • Understanding how to add value to a business and become a valued member of the team

Marie learnt to use the same cutting edge marketing and sales techniques as leading retailers and top sales people to sell her potential offering and gained a full-time care role.
