Career is not just about salary, it is about working in a field that you find satisfying and creating value. Our mentors share their own story of how they did it.
Courage, courage, courage is the NO.1 lesson I learnt in the UK. Dare to dream, and willing to put in the hard work, then success is inevitable. Career Insider really helped me to achieve what I want, and I know receiving my job offer is only the start of my life long learning journey. I can’t wait to learn more.
Career Insider helped me to get a job, that’s true, but what is different about Career Insider to other services is, it also taught me the knowledge and understanding to advance my career as an international talent.
Before Career Insider, I really don't know what I want for a career. Career Insider helps me to navigate this confusing and challenging journey. They are not imposing their ideas on me or trying to feed me any one size fit all solutions. Instead, they help me to ask all the right questions and make the right choices.
Coming to the UK and now stepping into the workplace, to me, it feels like one reality check after another. I can’t help but sometimes feels hopeless and often doubt myself. Now that I worked in the UK for over 2 years, there is not a day that I am glad I made the effort to try. Thanks, Career Insider, to me, you feel like a teacher but also a friend.
