I couldn't have done it without their help.
Graduating in the year 2020 was daunting for everyone who had to do it. We were tasked with starting our careers during the worst economic downturn in a century while adhering to the restrictions put in place to stop the spread of Coronavirus.
I faced the challenge of trying to sell myself to employers who were sceptical of my course background. Before receiving help from Mrs Bunmi Adekeye (The Smart Kid), I had sent over 100s of applications over the space of a year and only been called for 2 interviews. Mrs Adekeye took the time to scrutinize my CV and cover letters, giving me step by step instructions on how to improve them. I had weekly calls with her where she talked me through each of my drafts and advised me on which of my strengths and experiences I should emphasize to sell myself best.
In the end, I was successful in my application for two jobs. One of which was a job in creative marketing which was my dream Industry. I can confidently say that if it wasn’t for the help I received from Mrs Adekeye, I would not have been able to get these jobs. I can’t thank her enough.
The Smart Kids opportunities page is gold
The Smart Kids opportunities page is gold. I forwarded some of the opportunities on the page to a friend’s son. I did this every time over a period of about 3 months not knowing if anything would come out of it.
To my surprise, I got a message from his and his mum some days ago that he secured an internship from one of the opportunities. He is so very excited! Thank you for selflessly sharing these opportunities
Very Useful and Bettering
I am 16 years old and currently in Year 11. I attended the soft skills workshop during the February half term. I found that it taught me a lot of useful information which otherwise I would not have learned through traditional education. The workshop used a very good balance of both teaching and activities which made for a more interesting learning experience. I know I am now better off for attending this workshop because I have learned a lot of useful skills which will help me get ahead in life. I am now more confident, have better communication skills, have better presentation skills, am more aware of my body language and what it says to others and I will now be better in interview situations. This workshop has helped me to set long term goals and determine how I want to achieve them. I would highly recommend this workshop, even if you already have good soft skills because any teenager stands to learn a lot here, no matter how much you think you already know
Just concluded soft skill coaching for year 11
My daughter who has a blog got a scholarship to attend the 3 days soft skill training during the half term. She learnt alot and said it was worth the time spent. Thank you The smart kid for organizing and for the scholarship.
Experience of the soft skills workshop
The Smartkid program was a fun and useful experience for me. I learned so many different skills that I use now on a daily basis. I would definitely recommend to all students.
