The course gave me a lot of knowledge related to employment. Thanks to the course I was able to change my attitude and have chosen not to give up. Today, I am able to focus on the 'here and now.' Post-course guidance has given me tools for proper conduct at work, how to work systematically, and how to push myself forward. Today I know I am capable and have potential! I feel that work gives me value for life!
