I started my career with my first job in accounts department. I was very good at mathematics and achieved good grade at GCSE so this was the ideal job for me. I was happy and was given more responsibility over the years together, of course, with the relevant pay increases. My old colleagues were great people to work with and the company was generous and considerate to their staff.

After some thought, I decided to change my career. I carefully studied the job market and decided to become a PA. There are lots of colleges offering training to become a PA. I phoned and emailed the interesting ones and from their responses, then I visited the colleges that seemed to offer what I was after. I had to ask questions, face to face, and see the study environment. I decided to enrol with the one that suited my needs which were many as I am moving to a completely different area in a company. It was an intense program in a classroom environment and the additional benefit of the latest Microsoft Office training to Advanced level together with touch typing and audio typing.
I am now the Executive PA to a manager of a large organisation, having completed my probation period six months ago. I am so very happy!
