The Award really prepared me for what to expect at the recruitment stage. I’d been taught how to best sell any experience I had even if it appeared unrelated to the position I was applying for. I had no experience in the financial sector, but was able to adapt my CV to sell my skills in a way that made them relevant to my current job.
The Award was one thing that differentiated me from other candidates. I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to walk into an interview feeling in control. If you can handle the pressure of the recruitment process, this will shine through. The Award most definitely helped me to secure my current job.
