Polly Jones - Recent graduate to PA with the help of Pitman Training Cambridge

Course completed: Executive PA Diploma

Job secured: PA

“With the economic downturn and graduate jobs in high demand I decided to complete some unpaid internships in order to gain experience and hopefully lead to a paid position. After 4 months of applying for jobs. I still hadn’t had an interview. I decided to take a break from the work experience and instead went to Pitman in Cambridge to complete an Executive PA Course. It had been highly recommended to me by friends who had also completed the course and had successfully been offered jobs.

I spent 5 weeks completing the various stages of the course and really enjoyed the tasks involved and getting my skills up to scratch.

I put the qualification on my CV and was taken aback at how quickly calls from recruitment agencies began. They were all impressed with the course and explained that employers all look for qualified secretarial applicants when filling their positions. In my recruitment agency interviews I was given various tests in Touch Typing, Excel, Word and PowerPoint and in all of them was awarded a distinction mark. I began to succeed in being offered interviews and jobs, and even felt confident enough to turn down a position because there were plenty of other offers.

Overall Pitman gave me the confidence and skills I needed to enter the work place. Having the qualification on my CV sparked off interest from recruitment agencies and employers and created opportunities for me. I am now working full-time at a Venture Capital Firm in London as a Team PA."
