When Bilqis heard about SkillLab, her main expectations were towards helping her with the creation of a CV. Though this expectation was met, Bilqis says that her experience with the app went even further, describing it as "eye-opening" by helping her to transmit confidence in her skills to her future employers.

For example, she said, my work experience as a Computer Operator could mean something else for a potential employer if my skills are not well detailed thereby misleading.
