Careers helped me translate what I had done previously into UK terms, so that it was relevant to potential employers. They also helped me strengthen my interview skills, through one-to-one appointments. They have recently acquired an AI-based tool that allows you to record yourself while doing the interview and gives you feedback based on your speech speed, tone, and body language. I found it very useful.
