Mechanical Engineer, Philippines
“Dreams will remain dreams if you don’t pursue it. And as for my dream to become an F1 designer, I’m not going to take ‘no’ for an answer.
I’m Mark Joseph Cabute, and I’m a mechanical engineer. I entered the UK in 2019 to study and get my master’s degree. I enrolled to a management course just to extend my student visa, hoping that my years of stay here would count towards my required number of years for a future ILR application. I searched for countless ways to get a sponsor so I can be eligible for a skilled worker visa, but all were failed attempts. I even considered enrolling to another course, but this would cost me a lot of money and there is still no assurance that I would get a permanent job. 15 days before my visa expires, I was already feeling lost and desperate.
I posted on FB to ask for help. The panic-stricken me was clinging to every resource that I had--even social media. And I’m glad I did. After seeing my post, a friend approached me and referred me to IANS.
On June 7, I reached out to IANS, and after just a day, they were able to schedule me to a job interview and prepare my documents. The sponsorship I was struggling for for the past two years, IANS helped me achieve in just under two days. Because of them, I now have a 5-year contract with a UK-based company. It’s just pure magic.
If I had known IANS earlier, I wouldn’t have gone through all the stress of looking for sponsors and getting help from agencies that didn’t support me at all. From the interview preparation to the legal documentation, IANS was there for me from start to finish. And because of their team, I’m confident that I can win the race to my UK residency.”
My student visa is expiring in 15 days & I can't find a sponsor to work permanently in the UK.
