Step Further is a great opportunity, but don’t just take our word for it. Here are some student testimonials.
Michael’s Testimonial –
“Joining the step further programme was very beneficial for me as a university student preparing for work post-graduation. Whilst on the step further programme I was able to take part of several workshops which helped boost my interviewing and CV skills. Step Further also provided a great networking event where I was able to meet and interact with a lot of different accomplished professionals at Cricket game which created a fun light- hearted atmosphere.
Since joining Step Further, I was able to secure a summer internship at a planning consultancy in Central London and a business industrial year placement, which ultimately was my goal when joining the programme. Step Further has put me in a position to steer my focuses career wise once I graduate university. I would definitely recommend Step further to any University students looking for career guidance.”
Precious’ Testimonial –
“I did not expect that the mentorship programme with Step Further would be something that I now consider very pivotal to my career journey. Since sixth form, there was only one job that I wanted to. I had an honest and open conversation with Tamsin, my mentor, who encouraged me to begin to question this dream job and whether it actually aligned with my passions. She made me realise that perhaps I was doing a disservice to the value I bring into the world and encouraged me to believe and understand just how endless my opportunities are.”
