Self description

Male , 32

From a young age I was very technically driven and fascinated with science, physics, electronics.

I left school with a few A-levels and a rose tinted outlook of my impending university course and career path. Four years later I had no direction, on the brink of completely failing my course, racked up £25K of loans and as such left my prospects of a job in my dream career bare!

After bumbling through a few jobs I was sick to the back teeth of I got my break to wedge my foot in the door! An utter disappointment of a position, which left me feeling like I'd made a big mistake!

After a depressing period , I left that position had a couple of months out to focus my direction. Armed with a can do attitude, I managed to get back into the industry I wanted and from there it I went strength to strength, starting small and picking up more skills as I went along!

I am now working in a position I've dreamed of, starting my own family in a place I enjoy living. It took a while but I'm there!

Life experiences

Finding Jobs in Engineering and Technical roles

I've been in an Engineer and Technician for near 5 years now. I've experienced how hard it is to get a job in this industry especially when your qualifications are not up to par!

University and Further Education

I've graduated from university but when i look back I think of the thinks I wish I could have done differently. Maybe if I imparted some of that I could help others choose whats right for them.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I'm old enough to have experienced it and young enough to remember what it was like. I see others who are struggling and seems like they are in the same position I was! I wish to impart some lessons learnt, especially to those who are interested or trying to get a career in engineering, yet lack the qualifications or wish to know how to better themselves to get that position.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
