Employment is just around the corner!
Adalene had been struggling to find work after several years of battling schizophrenia with psychosis, but with the dedicated help of our employment specialist Madalina, she found new life injected into her job search! Here, Adalene tells Twining her story in her own words…
I have been looking for work for several years due to mental ill-health (schizophrenia / psychosis) and the challenges of finding employment in the small sector I was in.
Twining enterprise employment specialist Madalina breathed new life into my job search in several ways. She gave feedback and expert advice on my CV. She has been my sounding board and has always been helpful.
Madalina finds new opportunities including ones that I would not have considered before. She has improved my abilities to write covering letters. When I have had interviews, Madalina has given me the opportunity to practise my interview answers with her beforehand.
I attended education seminars on many aspects of the job search process, interview skills etc. with Frank. Twining’s have also offered help with the costs of training courses and outfits for interviews.
Twining has made a difference and improved my employability skills, wellbeing and confidence. I have now been shortlisted for jobs that were highly competitive. I feel hopeful that employment is just around the corner.
