Here we go…. So back in November I decided to make a life changing decision to change careers from Marketing to working in a project environment. I had realised that there was only so much I could achieve in marketing and that I needed a new challenge.
So I started the weekend course in November last year and enjoyed every minute. It provided me with an insight into project management and basically confirmed that I had made the right choice in changing careers. During this period I sat my prince2 exam and found that the knowledge, skills and experience gained from CI helped me pass the exam.
Since joining CI I have worked on the money ball project and I am currently a project coordinator for CI Oscars 2, a project close to my heart!
If I am totally honest I only really started applying for jobs a month ago after being made redundant. At first I was receiving phone calls everyday for project coordinator and PMO positions but I would not make it to the interview stage which was demoralising and then I noticed that I was not recieving any call calls at all until one day I had a call for a project coordinator position at one of the Top bank’s based in the city. I won’t lie I was not very optimistic about securing an interview as I have no previous financial experience. But GLORY be to GOD I was offered an interview and I got the Job!!!! I just cant believe that after 1 interview I got a job in finance.. i am over the moon.
Thank you so much Keji for this amazing opportunity without CI I probably would not be able to share my success story. I owe u a drink!!
