Ezra signed up to the Project Management Job Programme with ITonlinelearning in February 2021. Within 12 months she gained 4 esteemed certifications and was invited to 20 job interviews before securing the perfect role for her.

With support from her tutors, Ezra successfully passed all the courses in the Project Management Career Programme, including;

  • PRINCE2 Foundation
  • Change Management Foundation
  • AgilePM Foundation
  • PRINCE2 Practitioner

The Recruitment Phase

After passing her exams and completing the Simulated Project Management Assignment, Ezra was transferred to the recruitment team. The first step in the recruitment phase was a complete CV review by one of the experienced recruitment advisors. She began sending out roughly 20-30 job applications per week with about 60% of the applications inclusive of a cover letter. Ezra only had to tweak her industry-targeted CV roughly 5% of the time while applying to Junior Project Manager, Project Administrator, Project Coordinator, Project Support roles.

Within 2 months, Ezra accepted her first job offer as a Project Administrator. However, she soon realised that the hours expected from her were unsuitable, therefore she kindly declined the offer. Equipped with the interview and job-hunting advice from her recruitment advisor, she continued to send upwards of 20 job applications per week.

During the four months that Ezra was job-hunting, she sent a total of 275 job applications and received 20 job interviews before accepting a position that was ideal for her: a Graduate Scheme Continuous Improvement Coordinator. This was a welcome transition into her new field of Project Management after her previous role of Crew Member at McDonalds.

Catching up with Ezra

Ezra is currently rotating between each department every 4 months as part of her training and induction so that she can establish where she best fits within the organisation. She is enjoying the benefit of commuting to the office once a week while working from home every other day.

Taking the project management courses with ITonlinelearning has undoubtedly paved the way for Ezra to follow her desired career journey and continue to build a rewarding career within the project management sector. When asked what she thought of her experience as a whole with ITonlinelearning she explains, “It’s been a wonderful ride, and no regrets at all with ITonlinelearning. Everything has just been wonderful, from the initial consultation to the mentorship, and especially the recruitment process. I’ll be sure to spread the good word about ITonlinelearning!”
