I am overwhelmed with the support and I wouldn't be where I am now without all of your help. I told my work coach that all job seekers should be encouraged to do these webinars, even if they think they know it all, I can guarantee they don't. I've learnt so much, and it's even those conversations that go off on a tangent when one of us "jobseekers" ask you questions, and you suggest extra websites to look at etc.
