Lucy Blackman - E-mentoring mentee (BA English Literature 2010-13)
When I first heard about the Alumni Mentoring service I thought it sounded like a great idea, and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. Since graduating from university with little idea of what I wanted to do career-wise I’d felt quite lost, and even after identifying careers I was interested in I still felt unsure about what steps to take to secure my first job. In this sense, talking to a fellow Warwick graduate who has achieved success in my chosen profession has been incredibly useful and inspiring.
From our very first email exchanges Cathryn was so friendly and helpful, always providing thorough and detailed answers to my queries despite her busy schedule. By encouraging me to think about the kind of writing I’m interested in, Cathryn has really helped to clarify my sense of what I’m aiming for and her tips on where to look for job posts were fantastic in helping me to find more of the opportunities available to me.
I found myself feeling particularly grateful to Cathryn after following her advice to update my LinkedIn page and then discovering it had had been viewed by a company’s HR team prior to an important interview with them! I am certain that all of these things, as well as Cathryn’s constant reassurance have played a huge role in helping me to secure my first job in the industry. I hope to stay in contact with Cathryn and take her up on her kind offer to undertake work experience at her company in the future.
