Life Degree Society has been a great help right after college. As an art student with nothing lined up, I needed to make my skills more palatable to get employed. Workforce 101 turned out to be exactly what I needed. While there is plenty of information on the internet, hardly any of it is useful or practical. Workforce 101 provided me with the professional skills I really need to get somewhere in this world.
My time at life Degree has been full of growth because of Borana’s commitment to her team and to me. Borana was a model for resilience and perseverance in the professional world, and how to transform these qualities into hard work.
In Workforce 101, the resume portion really stood out to me because it was so unique and different from what I know. After going through the steps, my new resume provided tangible results; in less than a week, I received 4 different job offers from companies I did not even apply to. One of these offers came from a top financial firm in Philadelphia for their Financial Advisor position, EVEN THOUGH, I have 2 years of school left!
Borana is an individual who has immense drive to help others achieve their dreams. She guides individuals through a step-by-step process to over come their obstacles and orient them in the right direction. She has an ability to assess and prioritize; instilling the same mentality in those she is helping. This makes her very effective in communicating the big overall picture while also getting the across the finer details on your pathway to success.
Borana has empowered and inspired me in my tougher moments, I am thankful to not only call her a friend but also a life mentor.
Workforce 101 has helped me to stop and think about how to organize parts of my life that I assumed would just fall into place on their own. It has caused me to take more initiative in my personal growth and has helped me develop my professional skills, teaching me that I have more ways to market myself for success than I initially realized. The skills I learned in Workforce 101 will continue to aid me in my professional development for years to come.
As a rising senior in high school, Workforce 101 helped prepare me to enter the working world by teaching me how to develop my own professional identity. It taught me all the essential skills and tricks to impress future employers, ranging from creating strong resumes and LinkedIn profiles to building excellent communication and interview skills. I now have a greater sense of confidence and feel ready to embrace larger opportunities in the future. I am so grateful for Life Degree and would highly recommend its services to any young adult seeking to excel in the job market.
I see Life Degree Society as being her flagship venture that will be well known. Borana is a wonderful woman inside and out. She's a pleasure to work with and I find that she has an intuitive leader inside that is not afraid to guide you in the right direction. She is a hands-on advisor, and someone who I would trust leading a group of people in any organization.
Workforce 101 is a life-changing course and I really appreciate Life Degree for giving me the opportunity to experience it. It helped me a lot with my career development. I have had trouble learning how to be a professional at work, but when I took this course it helped me to build my resume, taught me how to communicate in the office, and introduced me to what the daily life and actions of a professional worker are. I think I learned a lot from this course and I am confident about my next Co-op (internship) experience.
Workforce 101 has been a great help to moving forward with my career development. I have been focused on the things I want job wise for sometime, but never could market myself “right.” Now that I have learned the next step in resume development, professionalism and communication – I can say that’s a thing of the past. Within a few weeks my newly honed skills, I was able to land a job in my field of interest with great placement for promotion and further development.
I knew I didn’t want to be a statistic in the sense that I end up with a job I hate, but around just to pay the bills.
Workforce 101 has been my saving grace.
