‘I just want to thank Love London Working for everything they’ve done to help me’
Shaqueele had been out of work for over a year after deciding he wanted a career change but he felt his CV and experience held him back from a large number of jobs. Hopefully Shaqueele’s partner who is a Hexagon resident told him about the Love London Working programme.
Shaqueele met with his advisor Lionne who worked with him to fix his CV, practice interview skills and build his confidence. Lionne prepared him for realistic interview situations and focused on him selling himself not his experience.
Lionne and Shaqueele then worked on sending out his CV to estate agents directly as this is the sector Shaqueele decided he wanted to work in. Shaqueele discovered that by him sending cv’s directly to employers even if they wasn’t advertising for a job at the time was very effective and showed he was doing something different.
Shaqueele then got a response from Andrews Estate Agents and after working as a trainee for 6 months he received a promotion to become a permanent Sales Negotiator.
Well Done Shaqueele!
