Opportunity Suffolk: Shervon's story
Shervon had been out of paid work for quite some time, although she had been volunteering at her local British Heart Foundation charity shop and responisble for the training of some of they newer volunteers.
Despite Shervons experince and persistence with job applications, she was struggling to get a paid position, which she was especially keen for as she wanted to have a baby and would need the extra money.
Sian, the Opportunity Suffolk advisor at Realise Futures, helped Shervon to improve her CV and writing a compelling cover letter.
The edited CV and new cover letter were exactly what Shervon needed, she managed to get an interview at Select, a fashion retailer that she had wanted to work at for a while. Once Sian has had her baby she hopes to return to work in retail.
"Sian said that the programme has "Pushed me in the right direction, I achieved my goal."
