Case Studies

Lewis

After completing his level 3 BTEC in business and accounting Lewis and was keen to find a new career in accounting where he could put to use what he had learnt at college.

Lewis, aged 19 and from Telford, contacted Job Box as he needed help putting together his first CV. A 1-2-1 appointment was arranged and Lewis was introduced to a Job Box careers advisor who went on to support him with his job search.

After Lewis explained what type of job he was looking for he was shown how to put together a CV and why it was so important to have a strong opening profile to promote his qualifications and personal objectives. Lewis was asked to talk about and give examples of his skills which proved a really useful exercise as it improved his confidence highlighting that you can advertise much more than just your work history and qualifications on your CV.

Next they looked through different job profiles to see what skills Lewis could match and include on his CV. Once Lewis’s CV was complete he was then advised on which types of jobs to apply for and practiced his interview skills.

Lewis was successful in applying for the account apprenticeship role with local company Tardis and once complete hopes to continue his career as a full time accounting technician.

Well done Lewis!
