When I graduated from university, I was apprehensive about seeking employment. I had studied Law in university and had spent most of my time revising in the library and thus was unable to gain experience working in a law firm. Although I had worked previously in retail, I was unsure whether I would have the skills required to work in an office environment. I also felt like university did not properly prepare you for working in the real world and networking with different types of individuals. I felt like I had the knowledge but was lacking interpersonal skills and confidence. After speaking to several recruiters and from a few failed interviews, I knew I needed some guidance. Thankfully, I found SL Creatives Projects on Instagram and I’m so glad I did!
I attended a few sessions with SLCP and my coach helped me with my interview techniques. We went through typical interview questions and my coach also went through mock interviews with me. My coach was so encouraging throughout. We covered everything – from the importance of first impressions to learning how to give a confident handshake. All of which, I was never taught in university. When I felt prepared for an interview, the next step was to get me dressed for it! I was given a beautiful suit to wear which instantly made me feel bold and unafraid I never truly appreciated how much an outfit can make you feel better! I instantly felt more confident and self-assured.
I was successful in my three stage interview and I got the job. I cannot thank SL Creatives Project enough. Overall, SLCP made me feel more confident and assertive. I am so much more optimistic in networking and even negotiating job offers. I would recommend this organisation to anyone.
