Why study in the Community Services industry

View transcript

InterCare video transcript: Why Study in the Community Services Industry

G: I went to work in the Service Industry because I care about people.

D: I chose this course as I wanted to help the community.

S: The most that I was hoping to achieve out of being in the Community Services area was certainly to give back to the community.

G: I come from IT background and that’s dealing mainly with machines and it’s getting closer to people.

D: I actually have a background in retail but I wanted to change my career. This was the best time for me to do it as the kids have got an older

S: I was in Sales and Marketing and Customer Service for the last 35 years. And back in January, I was laid off my job.

DN: They’ve got to that situation.  Where, “What am I going to do?”  “I’ve been doing this for 30 years. What am I going to do now?”  All we can do is give them the options, give them me explanations that they made, give them the reassurance.  And then the decision is up to them. But I tell them.  They’ve got to have the passion for the industry.

JS: If I’m going to put my mother or my dad into care. If you are going to look after my parents but you don’t have emotionally, you don’t feel anything.  There’s no point.

DN: If I train you, would I like you looking after somebody I love?  And that’s always a good indication to me.

D: I’m happy now. I can go out and get the career that I’ve always wanted. To help people and help the community. Inter Care makes the transition such a breeze. It’s amazing.

S: For anyone that’s contemplating studying I certainly would say, go for it. You have the best support and the advice that I would give is certainly just give it a go. You won’t be disappointed.
