Despite years of experience in his chosen field of accounting, he found it difficult securing a job because he felt a lot of pressure to do well in interviews, Lee struggled to answer questions confidently and in detail, especially since English is his second language.
Looking for help online, Lee found the Works Better website and decided to contact the team to see what support was available. Soon he was speaking with an advisor and, with an upcoming interview a week away, it was decided that he should quickly be referred to a Recruitment Support Officer to focus on his interview skills.
Through a short and quite intense series of sessions, they worked together covering questions likely to come up in interviews, and a few that Lee had struggled with in the past, to look at suitable answers and how to prepare for an interview.
Lee managed to secure multiple interviews and with the help of the RSO, his confidence grew quickly, by researching businesses before interviews and preparing himself for the questions beforehand he soon found himself in a new, permanent position!
Lee started his new job on the 8th of May and already there are plans for a work trip to China to help the business with their growth plans.
Lee said “I would definitely recommend Works Better to people, the help I received gave me the confidence I needed in the build-up to interviews”
