Reskilling Programme in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
“A while back I found myself in the unusual position of being out of work – I had been working for a well known Pharmaceutical company for over eleven years and was now “finished” .I was in my mid forties and thought what’s next, what can I do to help myself get back on the ladder – then the first time I went to sign-on ( only the second time in my life), I saw a notice on the board there about SpringBoard courses, I looked it up online when I went home and applied that very day.
Following a few conversations and a video interview I was accepted on a Biopharma course – this I believe changed my destiny, I had been getting some interviews up to then but with no success the level of candidates had increased significantly since I last had been looking for employment – I hadn’t stood still while working I had completed a number of certificates but, now everyone was studying!
The course I am pursuing is an online course delivered weekly and there is always someone there to help if needed either online or over the phone and most importantly you can do it at your own pace – trying to balance work , kids and homelife can be very challenging!
When I got interviews after that the companies were very interested in my course, I felt like I had gained an advantage again, and fortunately I am now employed by one of the biggest BioPharmaceutical companies in the World that is why I’d say continuing education can only be good for your career.”
