What is Work It Out? Job application and CV support

Work It Out is life coaching, job application and CV support from the Young Women’s Trust. The service is for young women aged 18-30 living in England and Wales. We’re really excited to offer ‘Work It Out’ to young women that are supported by Improving Me! 


Work It Out has a virtual one to one coaching service to help young women figure out their next steps for the future. You’ll usually have up to six free sessions that are done over the phone, with the option to speak to your coach whenever suits you best (including evenings and weekends). Whether you need help with your career planning or general life coaching, the Young Women’s Trust has a team of friendly, expert coaches to support you.

Job application and CV support

Work It Out also provides support with CVs and job applications. To get detailed feedback from the Work It Out team, simply send them your CV or job application and they’ll get back to you within one to three weeks (or sooner, if you let them know there is an urgent deadline). If you don’t know where to start with your CV, they have a guide that will help you out.
