Rapping job seeker secures first full-time role

Author: Emma Allison
Anastasia Glover Grime Rap Job Seeker

We were so pleased to hear recently that the graduate job seeker who's rap-lication to our MD Steve went viral earlier in the year, had secured her first full-time role.

Anastasia Glover really impressed Steve when she sent him a job application, detailing her struggles to get noticed and find work after leaving university - in the form of a grime rap!

When Steve posted the rap on LinkedIn, it was liked, shared and viewed by hundreds of thousands of people and Anastasia was inundated with offers of internships and work experience. Some of those companies included marketing agency Social Chain and radio station brand Global, which includes Heart, Capital, Smooth FM and Radio X.

However the latest news from Anastasia is the most exciting as she's now working as a content specialist for Manchester coding school Code Nation, in her first permanent, full-time position.

Anastasia said: “The story about the rap went far and wide and it led to some amazing opportunities with some brilliant companies.

“I spent time in London with Global and worked on some amazing things at Social Chain. But the point of the rap and the reason why I got in touch with Steve in the first place was to get a full-time role and I’m over the moon to have that opportunity with Code Nation.

“Code Nation do some brilliant work supporting people just like me who are developing new skills to further their careers. I’m so grateful that they gave me a chance.”

On hearing the news of Anastasia's new job Steve said: “We are approached by a lot of graduates but very few capture our attention in the way that Anastasia did. She had a really tough time trying to find work and get noticed in an ever-increasingly competitive market.

“But it was clear as soon as I met her that she was someone with a huge talent, who was going to do everything she could to get where she wanted to be, and I’m delighted that she’s secured her first permanent role.

“This story got so much attention and received so much coverage earlier in the year and it’s so nice to see it reach a happy conclusion.”

Anastasia added: “It was a slightly daft email and the attention on the back of it was crazy, but it just goes to show what can happen if you’re willing to be creative. I’m really excited about my future now.”
