Well, what can I say about the Fish4jobs road show? In my opinion it’s been a resounding success as the volume of those seeking employment advice superseded all our expectations!
Throughout the week we met with hundreds of individuals from those who had been unemployed for weeks, months and years to those who had been Police Chief Inspectors, and Greenfield Project workers, the diversity was unbelievable. The common denominator for each and every one was that unemployment is debilitating and can happen to any one of us at any given moment...scary I know!
Hopefully by showing our presence and support we have helped individuals move forward armed with a wealth of knowledge, the information to help them sell themselves to maximum effect, the truth to help them know where they have been going wrong, and the honesty to show them that a positive attitude really does produce results.
In some of our locations we helped to secure interviews for those who had matching skills and qualifications, an array of employers who kindly worked alongside us were offering some fantastic opportunities for those seeking employment, a huge thank you goes out to them.
I want to thank Fish4jobs and the Daily Mirror in supporting the unemployed in a way that enables face to face contact, in this virtual world this week proves how much it is needed.
