Lily is a Junior Production Executive, with one of the UK’s largest advertising agencies. Lily shares her experience of the service she and her family have received from Hexagon.
“I decided to go to Lionne for help at a time when I was really struggling to find a job. I had just finished an apprenticeship in Digital Marketing and had been searching for work for about 2 months when we had our first meeting. I went with no expectations and left feeling 100 times more confident in my search.
Each session with Lionne is very in-depth and personal – everything is catered towards you as an individual. She always remembers what we had spoken about the previous session and where we needed to pick up, unlike if you were to go to a recruitment agency. In between sessions she would email me job opportunities and read applications that I had written. Together, we wrote and sent out over 200 applications (CV and Cover Letters) to marketing firms, asking if they had any job opportunities.
I went from having very limited interviews, to being called up by many businesses (including the one where I am now currently employed). We went through interview techniques and mock interviews to help me prepare, and I honestly believe that without the help of Lionne and Hexagon, I wouldn’t be in the job I am in today. One of the most helpful things about these visits was that travel was reimbursed – something that helped me out incredibly seeing as I had no income. I was so pleased after my first session that I went home and encouraged my mum and my sister – who were also looking for work – to arrange to meet Lionne too. Since then we are all in employment and strongly believe that it’s down to the help we received from Lionne and the Hexagon team!”
