“Working full time has changed my whole life for the better. I’m able to rent, do normal activities and I’m even planning to continue my studies in business.”
Despite attending job seeker training in the past, Afifa found her ESL status made it challenging to keep up with the lessons. She had not been able to secure even a casual job and she was in a precarious financial situation when she finally found MTC Australia’s SEE Pathways to Job Readiness course, held in partnership with Muslim Women Australia.
Originally from Bangladesh, Afifa needed extra support to improve her ability to communicate and build the skills required to study effectively. She found the MTC Trainer went above and beyond to help her overcome these challenges.
“MTC’s job class was totally different. Within two weeks the trainer had helped me to prepare my resume, (complete) job skills preparation and practice interviewing. We prepared my cover letter, role played job interviews and completed job applications. I gained different skills including oral communication, writing and job skills.”
“The Trainer was in contact with me even during weekends and after her working hours. I greatly appreciate MTC’s help.”
The SEE Pathways course gave Afifa the practical job seeking skills she needed, and she is excited to be achieving her personal and career goals. Nafisa has now secured a full-time role as a receptionist at ISRA Medical Centre in Lakemba, and she is planning on continuing her studies in business.
“Now, my life is getting so much better.”
We’re so glad to hear that Afifa!
