Nathan – Seeking Out CV Tips and Interview Training

Nathan is a man in his 30s with tan skin, curly hair and a goatee. He is in a factory, wearing safety glasses and ear plugs while smiling widely towards the camera.

31-year-old Nathan from Leeds had limited experience in searching and applying for work. He was looking for CV tips and for opportunities to develop his interview confidence.

When Nathan joined the Making a Difference programme, he did not have a CV to send out to potential employers but was keen on building his resume and finding his way back into work.

How Did We Help?

Nathan met with Employment Coach Crystal from Making a Difference. Together, they started working on developing Nathan’s CV to make it stand out to future employers.

Our expert Coaches have a vast range of resources and up-to-date labour market information available to help job seekers from all walks of life into sustainable employment.

Using these resources and insights about the sector that interested Nathan the most, they built a resume that highlighted his skill set. They also worked to tailor his CV and application to each suitable vacancy to appeal to the employers and their person specifications.

Accessing CV Tips for a Standout Application

From there, Nathan continued to meet regularly with Crystal to monitor his progress and continue developing his confidence. Soon, Nathan started seeing significant changes in himself and his skills. This was especially true for his interview preparations.

He found it helpful to practise his answers to common interview questions with Crystal before an interview which raised his confidence levels.

Shortly after leaving the programme, Nathan is back at work and employed once again!

Reflecting on his time at Making a Difference, Nathan says:

The programme has been beneficial and you helped me create a CV that secured me this role. I found the support I received with creating a CV and interview preparation really beneficial.

Before being on this programme I wouldn’t have known how to pass an interview. This programme has helped me a lot in getting the support that I needed.”
