Teri Briggs

I don’t know what I would have done without the incredible people who came together to make this program a reality.

My biggest success during the program was definitely building up my self-confidence. There were skills that I already had, but I wasn’t confident enough to use.

Now I know anything is possible.

I owe my current job 100% to WEST. From building my resume, to the interview practice that I got, learning skills that would make me successful, to the suggestion to apply by the program coordinator, WEST was with me every step of the way.

WEST gave me new opportunities to look forward to, and the fundamental skills needed to take those steps.

I would recommend the WEST program 110% I sincerely believe that every person entering the workforce would benefit greatly from this training. This support and experience was unfathomable for me and how it impacted my entire life. I wish everyone had the chance to take part in this program and learn about how not only to be a successful candidate for a job, but to be successful in life.

I was able to make connections that can be a massive help in my future career goals.

WEST gave me the tools to succeed and gave me opportunities to network with different people and organizations to get my foot into the door. 

I managed to receive multiple certifications that gave me an additional advantage and boost of confidence. I felt prepared to enter my new role as a Customer Service Agent for the Executive Flight Centre.

WEST is an amazing program that can help anyone not only individuals looking for an aviation career. You meet fantastic women that are encouraging, supportive and passionate about what they are doing. It is truly inspiring. If you have a chance to join WEST I highly recommend jumping at the opportunity. It will never inhibit your future opportunities.
