Rumana (Ex-President of JLT) – “The website is really good, it gave me an idea as to what types of jobs are available. There were some jobs that I didn’t even know existed but with Start I was able to find them and see what they are like. The other thing I really like is that it shows you if there’s a job vacancy in my area or within a set distance from me. It shows me if what I like or can do matches the job. Overall it is an amazing website and people should use it as it does help a lot.”
Aishah (Lead Student) – “The reason why I like start is because it takes into account my qualities and interests and uses them to find me the jobs best suited for me. Also there is a vast majority of different jobs that I didn’t know existed. It also opens many pathways for me that I can consider.”
Jakub (Lead Student) – “This website is really amazing. It helped me to find a few dream jobs with which I can contribute to the community. It showed me opportunities available for my future that I wasn’t aware of.”
