This is what some visitors have to say:

 “I was absolutely hopeless before I came here, but since coming I’ve had help with my CV, and how to do covering letters. In doing so I’ve had numerous interviews and been on two training courses. I’ve also found employment twice, although they were short-term. I will continue until I get the job I really want." Lee
