I came to Gradguide looking for a career change and to enter the tech scene. As someone with no experience in this field I was unsure where to look and how to apply for jobs.Gradguide took me through the process and acted quickly in finding out what I wanted and assigning me a mentor who has years of experience in the field I was trying to go in. This was very useful.Now I have started a job that I love in a new city with an exciting, growing fintech company. I would highly encourage signing up to gradguide.

Gradguide helped me bridge the gap and land my first job in IT despite having no experience in the field. After applying to many different positions with little to no success a friend of mine recommended I try Gradguide. They were super quick to reach out and arrange a quick phone call to see what interests me and where I see myself. Fast forward a week or so later I had an interview they arranged for me and a mentor inside that company that helped me prepare and feel confident going in. Overall it took a month between contacting Gradguide and formally signing my contract. Kudos to the whole team, they were pleasure to deal with and have helped a tonne. Their platform has many useful resources from CV guides to webinars and everything in between.

I couldn't recommenced Gradguide enough after my experience over the last couple of weeks. Gradguide offer an excellent service that allows you the comfort of being able to chat to like minded people on a daily basis who want to see you succeed. From the first day receiving a call from Gemma, made me feel very welcomed where we discussed exactly what roles I was interested in and what was currently available. Harry, that i worked alongside as my mentor, provided me with all his knowledge and skills when approaching sales interviews. With the help of Gemma/Harry I was able to land the job in Sales that I really wanted, I will continue to spread the word of Gradguide and highly recommend if your looking for a job and need correct guidance Gradguide will 100% provide it for you.

As someone who wanted to get into sales and found it hard to bridge that gap between previous work experience and starting into sales I felt lost and out of my depth.I reached out to Gradguide and was welcomed straight away by Mark and Dave who were extremely helpful and pointed me in the direction of some of the online features.I had a couple of calls with Gemma to talk about my previous experience and where I wanted to go next in my career.After that, Gradguide paired me up with a mentor. This was THE best experience I have had when trying to look for a job. I met with my mentor once a week over zoom and he walked me through how sales works, it’s pros and cons as a career, and how to succeed in sales. He helped me tailor my CV to apply for the jobs I was looking for. He also helped me prep for any interview I had. He gave me invaluable tips and tricks for interviews and dealing with certain situations and questions that may arise in interviews and beyond.After just my second interview I was offered a job to kickstart my career in sales and I am absolutely delighted. I put a big part of this success down to the last couple of months of mentoring as it helped me to grow in confidence as well as leading to utilise the skills I had previously.I would definitely recommend to anyone who has finished a degree or not (like me!) and wants to kickstart their career to look no further than Gradguide.An excellent company run by some great people who really want to help people like you!

I have desperately applied for jobs for the past 6 months after graduation. Most of the companies turned down my applications while the rest gave no response. I didn't know the specific reasons behind such rejections.When Anne from Gradguide told me about this mentorship, it was a port in a storm. Then, Gemma, her colleague, contacted me, went through my CV and recommended me some junior positions to start with. I did not know my background could be suitable for such positions in tech companies.Gradguide staffs and mentors are super supportive, especially Colin Walsh. With more than 10 years of Customer Support and Relationship Management, he gave me an insight into the field. He gave feedback on my Linkedin profile and Resume. Besides, he shared with me the key competencies of the position and helped me prepare for my interview. That improved my performance much better in this interview, compared with the previous ones. I finally got an offer, the first one after 6 months !!There are still a lot of papers and procedures needed before I become an official employee. Even so, I consider this offer as an accomplishment with great support from Gradguide.I highly recommend Graguide and Colin for fresh graduates or job seekers. If you are like me before, who often thought of giving up on job applications, scared of interviews and didn't even know why I got rejected, please ask for help from Gradguide.
