- Position: Web Designer
Without the Funding I received I would not be able to set up my business and have the opportunity to find employment.
As of yet I am still seeking employment. In order to highlight my talents in the Web Design workforce I had to spend time re‐working and updating my personal web site as well as my business website.
I am in the process of taking more courses which I am sponsoring myself. At this time I am taking three Adobe courses, once finished I will have another three certificates. This will give me considerably more credibility in the Web Designer field.
After taking the BCIT courses I discovered that I needed more certificates in order to become competitive in my field. I have finished designing my business cards and will be submitting them along with my resume.
I found the women working at the Terrace Metis Funding office were a tremendous help in every aspect of my courses. I was helped with the forms, explanations of how to sign up and the forms were sent in an easy to access format.
Did I mention the pep talks I received when I felt that I could not continue with my course.
I was successful in obtaining my Web Designers Certificate with Distinction. Without the funding and support of the women in the office at the Terrace Metis Funding office I would not have been able to concentrate on my courses as I did.
My objective now is to keep submitting my resume and bidding on Web Design jobs. I have had a couple of enquiries and I hope to outbid my competitors.
