I had a job interview for a new product development role with global bread agent specialist Kudos Blends and hired@UCB staged a mock interview for me. This really sparked off what I needed to do for a more technical role. I got a second interview and again, hired@UCB helped me with my presentation. They were fantastic and I got the job.
