What is Career Transition Assistance (CTA)?
If you have a customer who is over 45 and looking to change their career, we can help make that happen. As a trusted provider of tailored solutions and high-quality training programs, our CTA program can be the partner you need to help your customers transition into their dream job.

How Career Transition Assistance works at MTC
Our CTA program is tailored to your customer’s needs with a focus on individual employment goals, learning the latest digital technology, and building confidence in talking to potential employers.
The first step is to identify your customer’s current skill level, interests, and future goals to provide them with an individualised report and plan.
We’ll help your customer create their own personal brand by revamping their resume and cover letters, online profiles, and job applications. We’ll give them interview tips and skills all while working through their goals and motivations.
We will help your customer create a portfolio and plan that clearly shows their strengths, experience, aspirations, and career path. Your customers will learn how to present and sell themselves in the current job market.
Your customers will be paired with a Coach who will be with them every step of the way through their CTA journey. They will be there to encourage, mentor, support, and guide your customer with one-on-one and self-paced learning followed by post-program meet-ups to ensure that your customer achieves the best outcome.
Our goal is to help your customer get to the point where they can succeed in their career all by themselves. We’ll give your customer the skills and confidence they need to promote their best strengths, nail the interview process, and land and keep the job they want.
We’ll teach your customer how to explore their local job market to discover what positions are available and how to enter new industries that they may not have considered before. They’ll also learn the best current job searching techniques, where the best jobs are being advertised, and how to find the ones that aren’t.
Our CTA program will provide your customers with networking opportunities and give them the tool they need for self-promotion, ensuring that they have the skills they need to get the most out of every networking opportunity.
With so much of our current job market and work environment being digital, we’ll work with your customer to improve their digital skills, including social media, office software, and everyday IT for job applications and online forms.
