In Feb 2014 I joined CAPG as a Admin Assistant to Ms. Hunter. parallel I also took up the role of a Research Assistant for Project Managers. I would research articles for them and submit them timely. Ms. Hunter is a wonderful human being. She genuinely strives for your growth as well as for the organization. Since this opportunity is virtual, I never felt I had any communication issues. Very professional environment. And yes I learnt a lot and this is something I will always remember. I told her the areas I wanted to improve on and she gave me a chance to do it. If you are an enthusiastic volunteer with an appetite to learn then this is the place. I eventually grew into Assistant Director for social media & relations. I worked for 6 months with them and will always cherish that. Thank you Career Action Plan Group

I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent volunteering for the CAP Group. Without doubt, my three months with CAP provided me with a rewarding and memorable experience. Mrs. Mack was both professional and personable in her dealings with me. Moreover, she encouraged me to tackle tasks outside my comfort zone. In addition to refining my advanced Microsoft Office skills, I was also able to advance my interpersonal skills as applied in a professional environment. Overall, my experience at CAP has helped me tremendously in pursuing my employment opportunities.

My stint as a Finance Associate with the CAP Group has been an extremely satisfying and worthwhile experience. I built on my existing skills and focused them towards creative and practical grass root level projects. Mrs. Mack made the experience enjoyable and I would highly recommend this organization to volunteer, to learn, to participate and to give back to your community.
