” I found the Jobs Club Formal Sessions to be very beneficial in helping me in whatever way possible to get back to work. From doing C.V’s, Cover letters and mock interviews in a relaxed and positive environment it really helped me get my mind set on returning to work. And through the Jobs Club Formal sessions with the help of my tutor I successfully gained employment. I would recommend the Jobs Club to anyone who is serious about going back to work as they will do everything in there power to help you”

“I am writing this short letter in relation to the Job Club I attended in Ballymun a few months ago and to share with you the experience I had while I attended there. I found the information beneficial and insightful, the CV preparation really taught me how to think about and identify my skillsets and qualifications, allowing me to create a stronger profile on paper than I had beforehand, also the information on cover letters clarified the importance of using them in the quest of employment, and how they help you stand out from the crowd to an employer, which I wouldn’t have used in the past.
The Job Club also covered interview techniques, filling out application forms and also some of the online job seeking sites available. I gained a lot from these sessions as I wasn’t aware of the many online sites available.
The interview techniques and filling application forms session covered the importance of research and preparation. I found these sessions very useful as I wasn’t sure how to sell my skills confidently and it also helped me to put into perspective the skills I have to offer. The Job Club has helped me to become more confident in my approach to seeking employment which I was lacking before I did the club. I really feel I have benefited from doing these sessions as I use these skills every time I’m applying for jobs”.
