Project Description

Forward Career coaching Student

Name: Millie

Age: 23

Service: Forward Ready to Launch Workshop


Lots of travelling & displacement activity to prolong the moment when she needed to get serious about getting a job

Millie did not really know what job she wanted to do when she applied to university so chose a course that she enjoyed the most. She had a fun time at university, did well academically and enjoyed being involved in sport, drama, writing and the arts. As she started her final year, she still had no idea what she wanted to do with her life and very soon Finals became an excuse, and a pretty good one, for her to avoid the issue.

Despite all the time spent talking to her friends and parents, there was nothing that really stood out for her, nothing that grabbed her attention, nothing that lit a fire inside. Finals came and went and instead of trying to find a job she took a long summer holiday which stretched into the winter – working temporary jobs to earn enough to then travel again.

In the following Spring, her parents suggested she attend the two-day Forward Get into Gear workshop.  Learning key steps to take, such as identifying her strengths and interests as well as meeting others in a similar situation, was encouraging and reassuring.  With just one follow up coaching session, Millie found the confidence and motivation to start applying for the roles which, through the programme, she knew would be right up her street.  Three months later, she started a role in advertising that suits her personality and interests, and subsequently has experienced success after success.

Why 18-30? 2019-11-12T12:02:15+00:00

18 – 30 is a guideline.  We do work with younger people still in education perhaps struggling with exam pressures, general anxiety and other challenges and we do work with people older than 30.  However, we have found that people 30s+ have different challenges, best served by our sister company Rutbusters www.rutbusters.org

Our job shadowing service offers you the opportunity to talk to and shadow experts and explore career routes (building up your knowledge of industries and developing networks) before taking a plunge into employment or a new career path.
