We Value Candidate Feedback

“ I’m in HR and selling myself was a struggle originally but my meetings with MJ really helped me be able to improve on selling myself and giving me some of my lost confidence back because she helped me remind me of my skills and assets. I ended up being inundated with interviews, I had 9 in one week. After the first meeting in person, I had lots of phone conversations with MJ which was really helpful as she always had the time for me and be my sounding board. But I honestly think from my perspective its realizing people should reach out sooner. Especially because of my background being in HR and recruitment, I didn’t think that I would need help in the job search process, when I really did. For other people, it would be better if they reach out in the first month rather than waiting as long as I did."

“ My career coach also gave great advice that I wouldn’t have received inside an organization about it being good to enquire about a company in regard to my situation and circumstances. He was a source of great motivation and provided a different, HR perspective on what had happened. My career coach also gave a lot of great tips and tricks along the way. I think because there is no such thing whether you are working to have the opportunity to look at yourself and get this sort of feedback and advice. To you as an individual it is not often offered. But I found it to be very helpful."

“ What I told Andrea with feedback is that by engaging and talking to her, it encouraged me to keep going. When you lose your job, your confidence gets hit and you question credibility a lot and it was nice to have that reassurance from her to keep encouraging me. The way I look at her is a mentor figure and she was very good with that role and I found the sessions to be good. I would always rate NOVA Partner’s services very highly as they have been so useful to me and when people are mentally distressed it is extremely beneficial for a person to have these sessions provided."

“ I think I was a bit worried, as I’m a little older, that I would not be able to get back into the workforce, especially with having no experience of applying for a job formally. After speaking with Mary about this, she helped to build up my confidence."

Candidate Feedback 2020

“ I think the level of professionalism and knowledge and experience that Karla had was beneficial. I was given the opportunity to explore broad capabilities, summarize my strengths and update my resume and cover letter as well as interview practices."

Candidate Feedback 2020

“ Having someone to talk to and be able to bounce ideas off someone was helpful. Especially as I was looking to go into a lower role and was finding it difficult to simplify my resume to make sense for the work that I wanted and the advice give to me worked because I now have two new jobs."

Candidate Feedback 2019

“ My experience with NOVA Partners was far in excess with the quality of the service and what I gained from the meetings. It was a brilliant experience right down to when I first walked in to the offices and was sitting in the waiting room where it was very friendly and welcoming."

Candidate Feedback 2020

“I would definitely recommend NOVA Partners. I feel lucky to have gotten a job with the help from NOVA Partners. I am 62 years old and it’s sad to say that there is ageism in applications. There’s a bit of ageism out there and for the older ones they need more time as I need more time to learn how to overcome barriers and pick up things. "

Candidate Feedback 2019

“ The most beneficial part was just sitting with the consultant and going through my strengths. It gave me the confidence to go and find a job. Weird to say, but it gave me the get up and go that I needed at the time as I was quite down when I found out I was made redundant. "
