“In The Right Direction!”

As most of you know I am doing my Age Care Cert III/HACC certificate at the moment. πŸ™‚ I have about 5 weeks left to go of the theory and then my 100 hours work placement. This course has really made me open my eyes and look at myself. I have found out things that I didn’t expect and that I can deal with more than I have realized πŸ™‚

This is a photo of a few of the lovely people I am doing the Age Care course with πŸ™‚ They have become new friends πŸ™‚

As part of this and as I feel I have come a long way doing this course, I decided to have ago at applying for a Disability Support position back in April. I have no qualifications in this area at the moment, but this is the area that I felt really strongly about and what I want to do after I finished this course.

I decided to go in and inquire about the position and see if it might be worth my while applying for it. I had a great informal talk with the CEO and she asked me to drop my Resume in to her. I got it updated and took it in and never heard anything for about a month.Β  I then received a phone call asking if I was still interested in the position and if I would come in for an interview πŸ™‚

Well, of course πŸ™‚Β  I got all dressed up to make a good first impression and had the interview which went for an hour and a half. They seemed very interested in the course I am doing and I was able to answer their questions.I was quite proud of my self afterwards as I felt I came across confident. Even if I didn’t get the job, I knew I had done my best πŸ™‚

Going about my daily business and being so busy with my course I sort of forgot about it, but it was in the back of my mind as I hadn’t heard anything. Then last Monday I got a phone call at school to say I was successful and they had a client for me to meet. I was so excited, I was jumping around and was hanging out till Wed afternoon to meet the client and see if I was suitable to work on the Support Team.

I am now starting on Thursday 27th June working the morning shift to get me trained and I am so stoked that I took the initiative and had a go at the job. It will be wonderful to put into use the things I have already learnt and to be on a support team πŸ™‚ I will be able to continue my training and work with other support teams and also go on and eventually do my Cert 4 in Disability.

You just never know if you don’t have a go at things πŸ™‚
