Dear <<First Name>>, Greetings from the Migrant Careers Support Trust!
The last month has been very hectic and fruitful. We have completed our first boot camp for Job Seekers. A big congratulations to all the 30 participant, who came all 4 days and attended the boot camp. We have got very good feedback from the attendees and we hope to replicate this workshop in the coming months. Keep in touch with our social media channels, for regular updates, announcements, and job postings.
I would like to thank all our partners and supporters who have helped us to reach this milestone, in just over one year of our operations.
This year has been tough for everyone, and I hope this holiday break will get you some cheer and joy. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy new Year from the entire team at Migrant Careers. Stay safe and have a happy holiday season!
Regards, Garry Gupta, Chair, Migrant Careers Support Trust
