“I took part in Work Avenue’s 14 Steps to Success programme, and it had a profound impact on my entire outlook on job searching. As well as providing practical tools, it helped me to really think about my short and long-term career goals. It also incorporated other key areas such as mindset and mental health. All in all, a very well thought out programme – very highly recommended!”
