  • I was looking for work for over two years.

  • I had looked at the paper, I looked to the internet. I've spent almost 30 years

  • nursing, most of my working life. I've actually just presented letters of

  • reference which is very old-fashioned. From that point of view even cover

  • letters and how to apply for a job was really beyond my skills. My self-esteem

  • was very low. I felt a bit angry that I should found myself unemployed.

  • CTA or Career Transition Assistance is an eight-week program and covers off on

  • digital literacy, which is a massive component, goal-setting to keep you on

  • track. You've got resumes, you've got cover

  • letters, interview skills and also job search and employer engagement.

  • Having someone walking beside you and reminding you of how capable you are.

  • Having you keep on track, help you with your resumes and your cover letters it just gives you

  • that momentum to keep trying. We have seen some amazing results here and

  • diverse employment. The benefit I think more than anything is that community spirit and support.

  • A few weeks into the CTA course I was able to adequately

  • send an email, attach a cover letter to an email which is very important to

  • actually get a job. I was able to typeset, sort of so basically format a letter.

  • We're actually able to help each other in a moral and supportive way but also

  • people that had different levels of IT skills. I received a job offer as

  • a educator in a nursery, which is a full-time job which is fantastic.

  • I was very very excited as the trainer will actually know. I would thoroughly

  • recommend the CTA program, just to overcome your fears and the challenge.

  • That course is completely suited to everyone's needs.
