I got a job! Whoop whoop…
I attended a taster in July 2019 and registered for the training immediately however didn’t start my training till October due to previous commitments. I went with the online training and eventually assigned a project as assistant lead PMO with Project Axis to migrate data from Basecamp to Proof hub. Anne Daka and Toks were PM and APM extraordinaire!
Prior to and during Tritek I worked in the housing sector as a Homelessness Prevention Officer however as the training progressed, I knew I wanted to remain in the housing industry as a Subject Matter Expert. As you may know roles like this are few and far between within industry so there haven’t been many roles to apply for. I had pretty much given up but Anne would never let me rest. She rang me at the beginning of lockdown and advised me not to be discouraged by COVID19 as according to her ‘things are still happening’
I started looking half-heartedly I must say and make a couple of applications and the rest is history! I have been offered a job as a PMO Coordinator for a Local Authority to co-ordinate a £53bn refurbishment on all their current properties and new developments over a 5yr period.
The interview was tough and unlike any interview I had ever done. I had to write out an action/strategy plan and the entire interview took 3hrs! The interview questions were strictly PMO based (change management, lessons learned, data input) I didn’t even have to answer questions about my skills or previous work experience. There is no way I would have been able to answer those questions without Tritek because I knew nothing about project management before Tritek.
Also many thanks to all the members of Project Axis, you guys pushed me when I was at my wit’s end during our project.
Bella, thank you for tailoring my CV for the roles I was looking for. I got an interview for every job I applied for.
Anne Daka, you have become a life long friend, you did not stop encouraging me, ringing me before and after the interview.
Adeshola, you were even more excited than I was at the news. Your platform is the bees knees.. you are truly Mama Hawk!
For all who are still on this journey, this is one of the best times to secure a job and make use of the team Adeshola has got behind her. They are all so amazing and passionately rooting for you!
