We love to hear good news stories as a result of our initiatives, and we have recently received a great news story from June, who attended our jobs fair in September. After working for a company for 26 years, June unfortunately found out she was being made redundant and began actively seeking new opportunities. She decided to attend our Jobs Fair at the Paisley Town Hall, and described herself as a “fish out of water”, however she was able to remain confident and showcase her skills landing her two job interviews for two fantastic companies.
“I found the face-to-face with potential employers gave me a chance to show them who I was by having an informal conversation with them, rather than them reading about me on paper”
June has recently found out that she impressed the hiring managers so much that she has been offered a position, as well as a salary increase too! She got in touch with Invest to thank us for hosting the event, and recommends that others looking for work come along to the next one! Congratulations June, well deserved. We wish you the best of luck in the future.
