Feedback from Researchers:
"I am very inspired and less stressed out with the whole 'I don't know what to do with my life, ahhhh'."
"You'll be glad to hear that the interview went well and that I got the job! Thank you very much for all your help before the interview - the panel asked me questions that were very similar to some of the questions you asked me in the mock interview, so it was really helpful to have thought about the answers I would give beforehand and to get some feedback on those answers."
"Thank you again for all your help! Those practice interviews really helped and I wouldn't have got it [the job] without your help. I really appreciate it!"
"So, I got the job - in fact I start on Monday! Thanks very much for your helpful advice and feedback, it obviously did the trick."
"I can't thank you enough for all your help so far, it is very reassuring to have a careers adviser specifically for researchers to be able to talk to at quite a daunting time."
"After talking to you I began to see how I could use my transferable skills and varied experience, which has given me a new lease of energy!"
“Your help really has been invaluable, I will be sure to keep in touch!”
“Just wanted to thank you once again for all your help and advice! It was very useful to discuss my interview with you and to practice. Everything went very well, both informal and formal presentations, as well as the interview itself. I received a call from them [the employer] after the interview with a job offer, so I am very happy now!”
“Thank you for all your help, I managed to get both the CV and cover letter looking a lot better and I was offered an interview!”
