Overcoming interview anxiety & gaining confidence
Simran approached the Progress programme for support as she was struggling to overcome her visual dyslexia which made searching for jobs difficult. She also struggled with anxiety surrounding interviews and wanted support with her interview technique.
Simran started to work with job coach Sammy Weston through Progress as supported by the Job Shop, who helped her by providing a range of one to one support, including supporting with her job search, offering mock interviews, supporting her with writing her CV, and supporting with her interview technique. With a range of support provided through the Job Shop and Progress partners Hereward College and Innovating Minds, Simran has been able to overcome her anxiety surrounding interviews and has gained confidence.
Simran has made great progress, and has now been able to secure multiple interviews and is very close to securing a role.
Simran said: “It is good to be on a programme where the coaches understand me. I feel so much more confident and I’ve had much better feedback from interviews”.
