Gulnaar – Boosting Confidence and Job Searching Skills

Culnaar is a South Asian woman in her 30s with tanned skin and a wide, friendly smile. She has thick, curly hair and is standing in a park while smiling towards the camera.

36-year-old Gulnaar from Leeds wanted to improve her job searching skills while looking for work in the UK.

She felt great stress at the prospect of finding work by herself and that she lacked important skills when searching for employment. She wanted additional support for her next career step.

How Did We Help?

While attending a local careers fair, Gulnaar met Crystal, an Employment Coach at Making a Difference. She was very keen on getting started with their one-to-one coaching sessions and on tackling the job market head-on.

Together with Crystal, Gulnaar started familiarising herself with different job-searching platforms and strategies for approaching applications. Crystal also shared with her additional resources and guidance which Gulnaar used to further enhance her knowledge.

All the while, Gulnaar remained very proactive and keen on learning about new ways to find work. Soon enough, her confidence grew as she became more comfortable with the prospects of securing employment in the UK.

The Benefits of Building Job Searching Skills

Having worked with Crystal and the Making a Difference programme, Gulnaar is feeling more confident in herself and reports having found clarity on the next steps of her career journey.

Next, she plans on diving headfirst into the job market using her new skill set and finding suitable full-time employment.

When asked about her experience on the programme, Gulnaar said:

“I’d suggest to anyone to enrol in the Making a Difference programme, irrespective of the fact that they’re able to achieve their goals of finding a job or degree. You’ll definitely find genuine support and motivation.”

Coach Crystal is equally excited by Gulnaar’s progress and positive outlook. She says:

“I’ve seen Gulnaar’s confidence grow immensely during her time on the programme and her determination to get a job has been inspiring.”
