“ I met with Jumile this morning; she was charming, enigmatic and obviously passionate about her job ”
I just wanted to write an email to compliment you on the amazing staff that I met today at your Grantham office. Firstly I have moved to the area recently and have applied, unsuccessfully, through numerous online job agencies... when earlier this week one of your Employees contacted me as obviously my CV had come through the online to your agency. In my view, this was meant to be. She contacted me saying that she was keen to meet me as my CV had sparked her interest and when was I free to meet up. So I met with Jumile this morning; she was charming, enigmatic and obviously passionate about her job. She discussed with me, in a comforting and encouraging manner, what I was looking for and the direction I was hoping to take with a career shift away from 16 years of teaching. She gave me exceedingly helpful and sound advice on how to improve my CV for the market I was looking at with humour, encouragement and without condescension. She is obviously a key member of the team and I was very grateful to meet with her so soon after her initial email. After the meeting, during which we had discussed possible roles that were currently available and how well I would be suited to them (despite being areas I had not previously thought of going into!); I left in the knowledge that Leanne would be in contact soon to discuss the role soon and also with a renewed sense of purpose and my spirits buoyed, after a number of faceless rejection emails. I went home with determination and amended my CV according to guidelines and suggestions Jumile had made. And within a few hours Leanne had also contacted me and sent me through the Job descriptions for one of the roles, and again boosted my confidence in saying how well she felt I was suited for the role and my availability for the following week if she were able to secure a meeting with the company. Now I may not have got a job yet but I feel that the staff I encountered today are a credit to your organisation and obviously exceedingly good at their jobs and should be praised accordingly. Hopefully, I won’t have to use you for long... fingers crossed but it felt like such a personal service and I felt that I was treated with such care and consideration throughout today that I felt it important to write to you.
