Jessica's Story of Ambition
Jessica's Journey to Fulfilling Her Career Ambition
Without growth and progression in our skill sets, our careers are guaranteed to be stagnant. Jessica, an administrator at a legal secretary recruitment office recognised this need for continuous education in her current field. After completing a PA/Secretary Diploma course at Souters, Jessica was able to move forward in her role and get the promotion that she always wanted.
Here’s her story:
Jessica always loved her job, but still, there was a lingering feeling that something was missing. In order to advance in her role and gain more responsibility, Jessica went in search for the ideal training. It had to be relevant, engaging and convenient.
When she came upon Souters’ PA/Secretary Diploma, it was a match made in heaven. The course included all the skills that she desired, such as audio typing and MS Office, plus it was located in central London. She signed up the next week for the diploma course as well as for a supplementary course in minute taking. The courses got off to a great start – the classroom environment was relaxed, yet professional and Jessica was learning new skills every session. More so, she could even access some course material online, making it possible to do a class or two from home. She even made some great friends while she was there.
After completing the PA/Secretary training programme, Jessica got exactly what she was looking for: a promotion! With improved skills in office work, organisation, communication and minute taking, her promotion was an easy choice for her employer. Jessica also gained confidence in dealing with important clients – her days of feeling overwhelmed in important meetings are behind her.
Following her promotion, Jessica works as a consultant and trainer for the admin staff in her company. Tomorrow, she hopes to work as an executive assistance in a multinational organisation.
