Diploma in Computing (Computer Networks) Level 7
"I was an IT professional in my home country with seven years’ experience, but I had no formal qualification. I wanted to study overseas and began researching colleges in Auckland. After receiving 15 offer letters from various providers I finally decided on Aspire2 International. It was a great decision as I have since realised that the teaching style and school offerings are quite different from other colleges. Aspire2 International has services that really helped me, such as English improvement courses and support, and career development sessions. The staff are really amazing and the school is well-equipped.
I received the top project award for my studies, which was a real highlight. I also benefited from the outstanding careers support provided by the Aspire2 Work team. I had five weeks of sessions with them, going over the basics and learning how to job hunt New Zealand-style. The sessions were really interactive and very helpful. I was also part of the Job Club which I really enjoyed. I got a job in the second week!
The first job I got through Aspire2 Work was as a telemarketing officer. From there I learned the skills needed to seek out employers and roles that were the right fit for me. Now I’m working for Datacom as a Technical Services Representative!"
