For many, the prospect of re-entering the workforce or navigating a career transition can be overwhelming, especially for those who are older and feel disconnected from today's job market. It is easy to feel as though your skills are outdated or that you have fallen behind the curve. However, there is hope on the horizon in the form of the Career Transition Assistance (CTA) program, delivered by Sarina Russo Job Access, offering a lifeline to those over 45 looking to revitalise their careers.

The CTA program is a government initiative aimed at supporting mature job seekers in finding meaningful employment. Designed to help participants refresh their knowledge, rebuild their skills, and relaunch their careers, the program provides invaluable guidance and support every step of the way.

Brenton’s Career Transition Assistance experience

One individual who found new hope through the CTA program is Brenton Marks. After a year of fruitless job applications, Brenton was feeling discouraged and disheartened. Despite his efforts, he struggled to secure full-time work in a competitive job market. However, upon joining the CTA program, he found renewed optimism and a pathway towards success.

Throughout the course, Brenton embraced the opportunity to learn essential job skills and enhance his digital literacy. However, one of the most significant transformations for him came in the form of improved communication skills. With guidance from Sarina Russo Job Access Program Facilitator, Belinda Scales, he learned to slow down his speech, pause for clarity, and adjust his volume to ensure better understanding—a change that even earned praise from his own mother.

Brenton’s commitment to personal growth did not stop there. Recognising the importance of practice and persistence, he actively applied his newfound communication skills in various activities throughout the program. His dedication paid off when he landed a job trial—a significant milestone that highlighted his progress and potential.

Moreover, Brenton’s resume underwent a remarkable transformation with the assistance of Belinda. His new resume became a standout piece that showcased his skills and experiences in the best possible light. Brenton himself expressed his astonishment at the transformation, remarking on the shift from "a scrappy old document to a most outstanding piece of art."

Brenton’s journey serves as a testament to the power of programs like CTA in unlocking opportunities and empowering individuals to take charge of their careers. With the right support and resources, even the most daunting challenges can be overcome, leading to brighter futures and fulfilling employment opportunities.

In conclusion, Sarina Russo's Career Transition Assistance program stands as a beacon of hope for mature job seekers looking to reenter the workforce or embark on new career paths. Through personalised coaching, skill-building workshops, and invaluable support, participants like Brenton can rewrite their career narratives and embark on journeys of personal and professional growth.
