Case study - Meet Tom
Tom was unemployed for a long time. His CV didn’t seem to get him shortlisted and he had begun to believe he was never going to get a job.As well as feeling rejected, he was prescribed antidepressants for depression and anxiety with little effect. After a while, Tom had become so used to not working and being on benefits that he had come to believe that a low paid job wouldn’t be enough to live on and so stopped making an effort in his job searching.
Konnect met Tom through a referral and asked him what he needed help with. His mentor started by supporting Tom’s mental health and wellbeing, helping him to change his
self belief. Over time he began to feel more positive and Konnect encouraged him to see that he was valuable and was worthy of a job, despite his long period of unemployment and many rejections.
Konnect helped Tom discover his strengths, skills and passions matching him to the type of work he was suited to; helping him to build a CV and to interview for those job types. This built Tom’s confidence, motivation and hope to start job searching again
