New Year, New Career – Eva’s Story

Eva's Story

“My ultimate aim is to become a nurse in the UK because I worked as a nurse in [Slovakia].” 

Eva visited Sheffield Futures and met with a Careers Adviser who helped her to understand how her qualifications compared to those needed to become a nurse in the UK. Together, they worked on Eva’s CV to ensure that it made the most of her transferable skills.

Eva said: “They gave me hope and showed me how to apply for jobs in the UK. Now I know which way I need to go, I understand what level of education I have and what this means for my dream to become a nurse.” 

“I only spent a short time with my Careers Adviser but they helped me a lot. They gave me ideas about where I am going and I would encourage anyone to contact Sheffield Futures because they are friendly and helpful.”
