Coles gro­cery depart­ment worker Jess Hartman, 19, was un­em­ployed for about three years be­fore tak­ing part in the pro­gram.

She was hired in a part-time job at Coles’ Cen­tral Mar­ket store in Novem­ber.

She says it is hard to get op­por­tu­ni­ties but learn­ing skills through the course made her more em­ploy­able.

‘‘Just how to deal with the cus­tomers and stuff like that. I don’t mind re­tail. It wasn’t at the top of my list (as a ca­reer op­tion) but it wasn’t as bad as I thought.’’
