Career AssistCareer Assist Contact: Sinead McCartan
Sinéad McCartan established Career Assist in July 2018, having previously named the business Application Assist when it was initially set up in July 2009. The aim of Career Assist is to help clients achieve career success through the completion of Job Applications, compilation of a CV, Cover Letter or LinkedIn Profile, Job Interview Preparation, UCAS Personal Statement service or Careers Advice. Other services include; Workshops delivered to schools and community groups, Free CV Review and a Dedicated Job Search service.
Based in Draperstown, Career Assist is at the heart of Mid-Ulster so is within easy travelling distance for clients who live across Northern Ireland. However, our services can be accessed from anywhere in the world as we believe distance should be no object. Consultations can be carried out by phone, e-mail or Skype and printed copies can be posted to clients Royal Mail First Class Signed For (chargeable).
Having previously worked as a Post-Primary Teacher and prior to that a Journalist, I thoroughly enjoy my current career as it enables me to help people who want to be helped to achieve career success. As a Teacher, it was disheartening when not everyone wanted to learn, now I’m doing what I love and helping people achieve career success at the same time. It’s like winning the lottery when a client tells me “I got that job”, “I got into Uni” “I couldn’t have done it without your help.”
People find it hard to talk about themselves and essentially sell themselves to an employer. I find clients unique selling points and put them on paper for employers/ universities to read. With a 100% success rate in everything Career Assist does, you are guaranteed a return on your career investment. After all, we spend most of our days at work, so it’s important to love your job and you’ll never have to work a day in your life!
