National Careers Service Adviser Trudy interviewed on ITV London News
National Careers Service Adviser Trudy Nieto appeared on ITV London News yesterday (Thursday 2 October), providing expert careers advice, information and guidance in a story on the UK charity ‘Fixers’.
Fixers is funded by the Big Lottery and enables young people to ‘use their past and fix the future’. They are motivated by a desire to act on an issue important to them and use digital, print and broadcast media to make their voices heard as far and wide as possible.
The story included a case study about Jordan, a young Londoner currently working with the charity on a project about how to ‘make it’ in the media industry, with a focus on graduates.
Trudy provided practical and professional advice to Jordan and others in a similar situation. She discussed the challenges graduates often face after university and potential opportunities available to them, including volunteering and work experience while studying.
Trudy was pleased with the interview, commenting: “The National Careers Service recognises the importance of preparing young people for the world of work and making sure they are confident in their decisions. Graduates can often find the world of work daunting after studying for several years and sometimes need an extra confidence boost. As a Careers Adviser, it was good to publicise our service on ITV London News and show how we can offer free support for all.”
