After spending 3 years as a volunteer doing reception work and trying to find a job in admin/reception I came to a standstill. Sending my CV off to lots of companies and not getting any replies I decided to join the ‘You First’ course with Cygnet Careers to see where I was going wrong and to see if my CV could be improved. Not only did I get help with my CV, I learned a whole lot of other stuff about myself and my self worth. Because of this course I learned an entire set of other skills I didn’t realise I had and have decided on a different career path altogether. Whether you are just starting off trying to build confidence, wanting to get into volunteering, wanting to get into part time or full time work or wanting a whole new career change, this is the course to be on and I would highly recommend it to anyone. This course is not like other courses I have been to where they are more about ticking boxes, this course is more focussed on individual needs and the way you learn is such good fun. You get to play games without even realising you’re learning, it’s not until afterwards when you’re discussing as a group about what you have just done whilst playing the game that you do realise. Such a lovely group of people I was with and I owe a massive thank you to the facilitator Kelly Oliver Dougall for making me feel more positive about myself and showing me I am worth so much more.
