*feeling lost, overwhelmed, demotivated or lacking confidence?
*ready to commit time and effort to your 2021 graduate job search?
If so, you are in the right place.
I really care about young adults starting and progressing in a graduate career which is right for them – and that means understanding yourself first so you can discover the right career options for you.
The more you then direct your search towards a role that plays to your strengths, that meets your interests and needs, that is for an organisation whose values align to your own, the more successful you will be in promoting yourself to employers and being offered a role that you really enjoy and can progress in.
And despite what you might read in the media, there are still lots of graduate jobs out there!
After eight months of searching and three months working with Rachel, I finally have a job as a parliamentary assistant! Rachel taught me so much about myself and the job-searching process and I honestly think without her help, I would still be the clueless and overwhelmed person I was three months ago. Rachel is so friendly, reassuring and an absolute expert on how to get a job and I have really enjoyed working with her. Thank you Rachel!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Rachel. I felt comfortable talking with her from the start, and was able to open up to her about my job anxieties. Rachel helped me to work out what I was looking for in a career, and what I truly valued in a company.
I no longer feel the need to apply randomly to any companies, but instead take the time to make sure the job is also the right fit for me. Lucy, recent graduate
I had applied to a number of recruitment websites and spent weeks going through job postings and websites, applying to any that sounded interesting regardless of whether they would suit my strengths, skills and interests.
Working with Rachel was a revelation. She showed me the best ways to narrow down my search and focus on building a strong and powerful image for potential employers.
Having come from a place of being completely lost, intimidated and overwhelmed, the change has been beyond belief. I now have a job I love, my worries have disappeared and I feel so much more confident in my abilities. Oscar, recent graduate
