Jeannette Guinane chose Chisholm Online to help advance her career in management
Jeanette studied a Graduate Certificate of Management online as she works full time and was not geographically close to universities or educational institutes, so it suited her to study in her own time, after work and on weekends.
"I was at a team leader level, that’s the lower level of supervisory and management in our organisation and my aims and aspirations are to become a manager," says Jeanette. "I have a very supportive manager and he has always flagged me for a succession plan within the department. I also did some personal coaching and mentoring with an external consultant last year who encouraged me to do further study."
Jeanette found studying and working full time manageable and enjoyable. "There are deadlines, but they're very achievable deadlines.
"I found the course content enjoyable and really fun, I felt very supported by the Chisholm Online staff and course facilitator. They were there to assist if I needed help with anything and were always available.
"I absolutely loved it, it was really enjoyable to study and to gain the qualification. I was quite proud of myself."
Since completing her Graduate Certificate of Management at Chisholm Online, Jeanette has secured a promotion in her organisation so she is one step closer to here desired career in management and gained a lot of skills and confidence.
The qualification has also provided an enormous stepping stone to gaining a Masters in Business Administration which she is currently investigating.
"I don’t think I would be as confident as I am in my current role if I hadn’t completed the graduate certificate," says Jeanette.
