University Applications truly made easy!
We completed the ‘University Application Made Easy’ course and found it to be very useful, informative and insightful of the application process, the UCAS end to end process and what we should be considering as we plan university phase.
The steps were easy to follow and navigate through the videos and resources provided.
We saw how important it was to start thinking about building the profile for the personal statement and what the interviewers will be looking out for.
We appreciate the fact that we can go back to replay the videos within the 150 days too. Thanks for putting this course together. Highly recommended!
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.
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
Highly recommend soft skills workshop
I was happy that my son attended this workshop. He found that he was able to practise interview skills and was keen to show me when I asked him to, he actually was happy to demonstrate his newly-honed skills to me! Highly recommend.
