This morning I interviewed and onboarding 6 new job seekers for Blaze Your Trail's work experience program.
4 out of 6 were the first in their family to go to University.
All 6 were women. 5 were migrants. 1 is a refugee.
2 live in Victoria, 2 in the USA, 1 in Canada and 1 in the UK. They all aspire to be Salesforce professionals.
When asked what do you see yourself doing in 5 years time one woman said "the sky is the limit". She has 15 years experience working in Healthcare.
It makes me so happy to be able to welcome such diversity into the IT world, and to support people to get the work experience they need to get their first break.
When you choose Blaze Your Trail to be your fundraising and technology partner you support 100s of job seekers and ensure that the program remains free for them. Thank you!
