PREPARING FOR AN INTERVIEW

“In the end I had a few consultations with the career advisor. I needed clarity about my future career. I came in believing I had nothing to offer employers and I left with greater confidence knowing that I have my own strengths and experience. I learned what to expect from work and where my best chances are.”
