“I found my sessions with SEVEN to be invaluable at teasing out what I wanted to achieve from my career. Based on conversations with my SEVEN Career Coach, I gained not one but two of my dream jobs. If you are wondering whether to sign up for some careers coaching, I’d say - go for it. You never know where it will take you.”

“What was helpful for me was being told by Lee what he was hearing when I spoke about myself and my work experience. I was saying the right things and was actually giving a great impression to interviewers, which I hadn't realised. Speaking and working with Lee cast away any doubts I had about myself and my experience. It gave me a huge confidence boost. I gained confirmation that I was saying the right things, the confidence to be myself in interviews and resilience to keep going in my job hunt.”
