Employment Services – Good News Story – Tara O’Sullivan
Tara attended the Vestia Employability Programme in October 2017 having been unemployed for over 6 months.
Tara had an excellent employment history but had found it difficult to find work since being made redundant from a previous role.
During the programme, Tara updated her CV to an excellent standard, developed her interview skills and applied for a range of local vacancies.
Couse Tutor, Oliver Rimell, said: “Tara was fantastic on the programme; she was always very positive, bubbly and supportive of other learners. I am really pleased she has got the result she wanted, well done Tara.”
During the programme, Tara was successful in gaining part time, temporary employment with Tesco in a role that she really enjoyed. Following this, Tara was successful in gaining a permanent position as a Senior Supervisor with Holland and Barrett.
During the programme Tara said: “The course was interesting and informative, and the most useful parts were the mock interviews and working in teams with other people.”
Following the programme Tara said: “‘I have used things I learnt on the course like preparing and taking in notes to a recent interview. The interviewer was very impressed and I got the job! I would not have thought about doing this before I had been on the course.”
