Veronika felt that her job was no longer challenging her. Since failing her A levels in school, she had nothing to prove for herself so she decided to enrol on the AAT Level 2 course to elevate her career.
I decided to do my AAT qualifications as I failed my A levels and then went straight to work. Some years later at 23 I have nothing to prove for myself, I have been at a steady job for a while that was no longer challenging for me, and I wanted to get out of there and spread my wings.
When I was applying for jobs before I started my AAT learning, I wasn’t getting anywhere.
I was looked down on, as on paper (my CV) I don’t come across as the person that I am, because people look at your education and qualifications and to the employer, I didn’t have much to offer.
I never thought I would be good at it as I was always bad at maths at school, but doing it yourself teaches you more and I love doing my studies when I get back home from work.
Ever since I have started my studies and have been applying for jobs, I now get more options and chances presented to me by doing this. I am now more confident when I go for job interviews as I now have that ‘something’ to offer!
Doing my studies has taken a lot of self-discipline, after a long day at work, after you cooked dinner and sat down the last thing you want to do is work, but I always remind my self that this is for me, this is for my future and for the last 6 months I have been putting in hours of work into this and the fruit of my labour is coming through!
It is a very proud moment when you come back home after an exam and seen that you smashed it.
