Jess was unemployed for 12 months when she was referred to Open Door, through one of our Young People Schemes Manager. She had been applying for jobs, and even in some cases going to interviews, however she was unsuccessful.
At the initial assessment, we discussed all her options, and draw up an action plan.She was given help to modify her CV, which was then to be forwarded onto recruitment agencies. Jess was also given advice and support of the different ways of doing job searches, as well as on interview techniques.
Jass has now completed her Apprenticeship at Westfield Retail Academy with a credit, and is working part time at an Estate Agency, where she is the Admin Assistant. By the end of July she will be working full time and have started a NVQ Level 3 in Business Administration.
