The 1 Hour Project is the best investment of an hour I’ve spent in a very long time. If you’re not sure whether to do it or not, just do it – you won’t be disappointed.

I find this programme a great initiative – and glad if I can be helpful to students that are considering their career options for the future

I have been introduced to this 1 Hour Project by London Metropolitan University and I found it very useful. PushFar is really easy to use and the feedback you receive from your mentor is very important for your job search and your future career. The mentors that are assigned to you are people with experience in the field you are interested in, and they will know how to help you to be more successful in looking for a job, to be prepared for interview questions and to adapt your CV and cover letter to the job you are applying for. Finally, they will give you insides about what you will be expected to do in your future job and what skills you are supposed to have. This is what my mentor is doing for me during our sessions.

The one hour program was amazing, they quickly matched me with a graduate who is from the same university as me and in the industry I was looking for. The first one hour call was also fantastic, my mentor was very patient with my questions and gave me a lot of suggestions. Looking forward to the next two conversations!


Invaluable opportunity. I would highly recommend to everyone looking to learn more from an experienced professional. You can learn so much in one hour !

I took part in the 1 Hour Project in order to learn more about my aspirational career profession – teaching. During the planning stages the team were amazing at keeping me informed with the progress of my application, references and subsequent matching of a professional. I felt fully prepared and the team provided me with plenty of resources to help to plan for the session. The actual 1-hour session with a professional ran so smoothly and the conversation just naturally flowed. The individual was very welcoming and lovely. The 1-hour conversation was worth every minute as it left me with further questions that need answering before I pursue a non-PGCE direct teacher training route. Great project. Thank you for giving me the opportunity 🙂

The 1 hour project allowed me to connect to a very experienced industry expert I wouldn’t have been able to meet otherwise! I learnt so much about what my next steps should be to enter the industry I want to!

I really appreciate this initiative and its focus on connecting talent from disadvantaged backgrounds to industry experts with the expertise and knowledge in the field. As we all know, connections are a significant part of the work environment and the 1 hour project is perfect for levelling out the playing field and in understanding the different career options from the help of an expert.

I found the project to be a great tool for building connections with people who work in the areas you are aiming for. Through these connections, you can receive tips, advice and maybe be indicated for future jobs.

Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be part of the 1 hour project. Steve was absolutely fantastic, very informative and helpful. He gave me a base for where I can look to move my career into and also to connect with people in the industry. I hope I get another opportunity to be involved in this again before I graduate.
