“I’m so happy I came across Gradguide! After graduating from my masters, I felt the job hunt was so daunting and I had no idea where to even start my search. The structured format of the programme is so useful in perfecting your CV, cover letters and LinkedIn profile. My mentor Alice was such a massive help to me throughout the application and interview processes, I can’t thank her enough for all the time she gave me. 100% would recommend Gradguide to any news graduate who is looking to network and land their dream job.”

MENTOR

“I signed up to mentor with Gradguide so that I could give back and help people early on in their career, who were looking to make the move into customer facing roles with the Tech industry. Gradguide facilitates just that and much more; from screening and prepping the people who sign up so that they are raring to go by the time I worked with them made my job in coaching them through the interview process seamless. If you want to give back to people once in your shoes but also get exposure to working closely with people to help them achieve their goals, definitely sign up to mentor with Gradguide!”
