Polly has worked extensively in schools both in the private and state sectors with children from year 10 to year 13 to help with CV creation. She has also worked with big corporates and investment banks to help disadvantaged students prepare for the working world.
She gives CV workshops either in person or online and ensures that the individual has a completed CV that they are happy with after the event has taken place. These workshops are interactive and informative and the students can continue to correspond with Polly even after the workshop especially in the lead up to an interview that they are preparing for.
Polly offers a one on one interview technique service where the individual is interviewed as if in a real life situation. The student is then given feedback on the spot and a written report follows with useful tips on how to improve. As with the CV workshops, the dialogue doesn't stop once the student leaves the room - Polly is happy to continue to coach the individual especially in the lead up to an important interview.
“Polly was amazing; she held a series of online workshops to guide our pupils through the process of creating their CV, then followed up with one-on-one interview practice in person before providing individual feedback. The pupils who took part thoroughly enjoyed the process and left feeling much more confident that they could give the best impression of themselves both on paper and in person. I could not recommend her highly enough, and we will certainly be making MRFG Consulting an annual feature of our Careers Programme.”
Sam Dewhurst, Head of Careers, Uppingham School
"Polly came into school to assist with Practice Interviews for both our Year 11 and 12 students. Polly was approachable and able to put the students at ease within the first minutes of meeting them. She was supportive but also challenged the students to ensure that the experience was really valuable and the students walked away with a greater knowledge of the interview process and of how they could rise to the occasion. Polly really went the extra mile and gifted the students with a resource pack to take away with them too. In addition Polly gave up further time to help some of our Year 13 students with specific interview preparation which was invaluable. We are very grateful for the support she has given to the students."
Philip White, Head of Sixth Form, The Cotswold School
"Polly’s session was invaluable and set our students up for both corporate and University interviews. Polly offered snippets from her experiences and communicated standard practice in an engaging manner. As a result, students felt prepared and ready to tackle both their CVs and their next interview."
Hannah Trevis, Head of Sixth Form, St Gabriel's, Newbury
"We had the pleasure of working with Polly alongside our 2021 cohort of interns from four social mobility organisations both in the UK and the USA. She spent time with the students going through format and content of a solid CV in a number of interactive workshops and then spent time with them on an individual basis as they finessed their document. The students found the sessions engaging and informative and enjoyed learning practical tips to help stand out."
