'The mentoring I got from CIPD was very personal and shaped towards my needs as a young person, rather than the standard job seekers advice than you could access yourself online. Diana really tailored the mentoring to my needs and the challenges I needed help with.'


'We worked on developing my CV and application forms... It was like having a new professional friend in some ways.'


'I remember going for my first interview, and I thought it went really well. I tried to remember all the things my mentor taught me... later I got a call from the employer who offered me a job.'


'Nikki was a God-send, she built up my confidence so much, prepared me for life in the real world and when I needed it she would give me a push when she thought I was slacking.'
