Practical advice helped Charlie overcome anxiety and find a new job!
Charlie was experiencing anxiety due to a mixture of different life stressors, not least the global COVID pandemic, which made it harder for him to find a job after completing his studies. Twining helped with practical advice on CV and cover letter writing and Charlie now has a new job! Here he tells us about his journey, in his own words…
What was your life like before Twining?
I have anxiety and stress issues because related to my complex personal, academic, and financial issues, as well as the pandemic situation.
When and why did you begin working with Twining?
The pandemic situation with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has developed rapidly since I was in the final stages of completing my study. During the time of revising my thesis (before and during the lockdown implemented in the UK), my family and I were able to survive mediocrely and later were utterly lacking in the UK. Later, I have completed my study, but I struggled to find a job.
How did Twining help?
They have provided helpful information, advice, and specific help (including helping me to improve my curriculum vitae and cover letter).
What’s happening in your life now?
I now have a new job! (In work with on-the-job training). I would like to learn more skills that are useful to improve my career.
