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.

I found the 1 Hour Project very useful. I had the chance to have a meaningful conversation with a professional in the area that I was interested in and he gave me a lot of useful advices and a detailed action plan that I could follow to be more employable in my field of interest. I advice every student to take part in it.

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.


This project is a wonderful initiative to enhance equality amongst students by giving everyone a fair chance to explore their potential. The 1 hour meeting with the expert I was matched to was absolutely brilliant.

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.

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.

the 1 hour project matched me with someone who was not only from a similar socio-cultural background as me and could relate to my perspective but also someone who had aligned career interests. My match was very amiable and pro-actively offered to help me which is something I wasn’t expecting and appreciate a lot. They were very honest about their experiences – both the good and the bad which will surely help me make a more informed choice in the upcoming application cycle. I think speaking to industry professionals is a great way to get to know a firm or industry beyond what is written on the website and the glossy stuff and encourage other students to sign up for the 1 hour project!

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 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 🙂
