Anita Joseph Louis - Return to Work
I would highly recommend this course for any woman who has been away from work for a long time, who has all the capabilities to re-join the work force but in great need for the right inspiration support and gradual preparation to get in to the workforce.
I am a migrant from India. I studied a Post Graduate Diploma in Human Resources Management and Bachelor Degree in Mathematics and Statistics in India.
I have been away from work for last 7 years as I have been a stay at home mother looking after my young kids.
I found out about the Return to Work for Women course through a friend who came to the playgroup I went to.
The course suited my requirements as I wanted to get back to the workforce.
The work experience co-ordinated through the course served as a window to see the workplace and have a glimpse of the opportunities in the market.
I cherished the camaraderie of my classmates in whom I saw great friendship.
I greatly appreciate the efforts of the teachers in facilitating in grooming my work preparation skills. It was very well thought of and well-rounded approach.
I did my work experience in HR at the ACT Government, Department of Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development. I chose to do this as it is my background education and previous work experience.
I am now applying for jobs through job portals and also thinking about additional courses that will enhance my work skills.
