Janelle Sykes - Return to Work

I decided to study with CIT as I was made redundant and was having trouble getting a job. The course shone a light on the skills I already had and helped me to regain my confidence.

Janelle Sykes, Return to Work

I have lived in Canberra all my life. My first job was with a Chartered Accountant firm doing mainly filing and lodging forms with the courts.

I decided to study with CIT as I was made redundant and was having trouble getting a job. It is a more complicated journey in finding a job.

I enrolled in the CIT Return to Work for Women program to help improve my employability skills and confidence.

The course helps develop your skills for interviews, gives you confidence in applying for jobs and getting your resume up-to-date. The course showed me that I had more skills then I first thought.

Since graduating, I have had two interviews already!

The highlights of the course were the teachers. They have given me so much encouragement in doing the course. Some of the most memorable moments were the friendships gained with the other women studying the course.

I would recommend CIT for those looking to regain their confidence and further their skills.

I am looking to continue my studies and possibly enrol in a Certificate III in Business Administration.
