"I was a service user of Employability North Dublin for a while and I was treated with courtesy and respect at all times by all the staff. I was given many mock interviews by my job coach who gave me lots of pointers on how to go about answering questions at interview. I managed to find a job in January 2016 with their help. EmployAbility gave me the confidence to go out and apply to places in my local area. I would not be where I am without their help."
"I have used the Employability on two separate occasions. This being because on each occasion I have got a job. I am now working for a company called Food & Catering Supplies company and I am doing well. I am very grateful for EmployAbility and for my job coach. If it wasn’t for her I would not be working right now. I would recommend Employ Ability to anyone who is struggling with finding a job."
