After 3 years of studying BA degree in Accounting in university I was confident I want get job as an Accounts Assistant but I found myself struggling to secure permanent employment due to economic recession and tight competition in the market place. I felt constantly rejected and more determined to fight the challenge and accomplish my desire.
Eventually I changed the track and searched the web for practical courses to boost my experience. I found Pitman Training located in Swords which was easy to travel from Balbriggan.
During the course I concentrated my mind on completing the course. I enjoyed myself learning new computer skills with no pressure undertaken in completing each module. After successfully completing the course job was next on my agenda. I was given guidance on CV preparation and interview practice which gave me more confidence. Within one month of finishing course I was granted and office clerk position and found it to be a starting point on my career and an opportunity to extend on my existing skills.
After completing the role as an office clerk it led to ore frequent interviews and phone calls. I increased my self-esteem, confidence and contributed positive hope and soon landed my dream job as an Accounts Assistant. I am enjoying this exciting career I always wanted. I thank Pitman Training for all the advice and assistant I received from staff during and after the course.
