Confidence – getting the boost you need
Sometimes, all it takes is that boost of confidence to get you where you need to go. We see this a lot with our participants, often they have the skills and experience but all they need is a sprinkling of confidence to help them get to where they want to be.
Confidence through learning
One of our most recent participants had her CV re-vamped and confidence boosted by going through interview techniques and learning how to identify her skillset. After having support from her Peer Support Worker and one of the HeadsUp Development and Skills Officers, she felt more confident and started using her new CV to apply for jobs. It wasn’t long before she was offered an interview (or two). Although she was nervous for her interview, she felt prepared and confident!
When asked about the support she received she couldn’t speak more highly about the help she had from HeadsUp, especially all the work around interview techniques and having her confidence boost. When asked about the support she received from her DSO she wrote
‘she was very easy to talk to & helped me with my confidence… [she] was very helpful and had a very friendly personality, we covered a lot in our sessions and I am very grateful’
We are so happy for this massive success of feeling more confident, and even happier that she got offered the role and is now excited to start her new job as an administrator!!
