Sharon’s career transition triumph
Meet Sharon Evans, a resilient individual in her early 60s, who spent an impressive 30 years working for a single employer. While loyalty is commendable, it also posed a unique challenge for Sharon when it came time for a career change. Navigating the digital landscape of the current job market seemed like an overwhelming task, compounded by the fact that Sharon had never have to create a resume.
One of the challenges that Sharon faced was adapting to the digital demands of the job market. Her consultant has recognised this and provided tailored support to enhance Sharon’s digital skills.

Crucial to Sharon’s success was the support and guidance of Belinda Scales, Sarina Russo Job Access Career Transition Assistance Coach.

This document became a powerful tool in opening doors to potential employers and since completing the CTA course Sharon has secured a contract position. The CTA program has equipped her with a toolkit, hence, enhancing her prospects in the competitive job market.
