"I've had great results as an outcome of attending the Job Application & Interview Skills workshop, I have since applied for 2 roles. I am happy that as a result of this course, I have been successful in the recruitment process and have been offered the position. I feel confident in my application as a result of having attended this course. This course and the trainer were great and I feel that if I did not attend this course, I would not have progressed as far as I did in the recruitment process. The trainer was very knowledgeable and thoroughly detailed all subjects as well as providing great examples and having great answers to all questions asked no matter how difficult."
