Hiromi finds the best of both worlds.
HIROMI'S SUCCESS STORY
Hiromi has quite the tale.
Despite being an Auckland girl through and through, she spent a short stint in Rarotonga before starting school, and lived in London for a couple of years teaching and nannying.
‘After having a couple of kids of my own, I decided I wanted a career change and had a general interest in Bookkeeping’ Hiromi says. So, she decided to switch her career from helping raise kids to helping raise revenue with The Career Academy’s Certificate in Bookkeeping.
For Hiromi, the flexibility of study at The Career Academy made all of the difference. ‘I liked being able to do the entire course at home, my daughter was only 10 weeks at the time, so I appreciated having the flexibility to study within my own pace. I could choose which days I wanted to commit to study – so I was able to balance study with my personal life.’ Studying when, where and how she liked meant that Hiromi didn’t have to choose between the life she had and the life she wanted to achieve for herself.
And once Hiromi reach the end of her course – her hard work paid off! She took advantage of The Career Academy’s Career Centre, a service built to help students find their dream role after graduating. She spotted a bookkeeping role with The Back Office Company, applied for it, and got the job!
‘I am really enjoying the challenge of something new.’ Hiromi says of her new position as a bookkeeper. ‘I am able to establish a new career around the kids and it fits in really well with family life. A new challenge is always good! I really appreciate the support from The Back Office Company – they have really helped me progress into this role and without the support it wouldn’t be possible for me to do this role.’
