Marry Marak Former Office staff
I am Marry Marak. I am 23 years old. I have studied up to class-10. I appeared in the SSC examination but I could not pass in the SSC examination as I was weak in English. I am youngest child of my birth family among four sisters. I was living with two elder sisters and one niece in Dhaka. After coming to Dhaka I took training on Beauty parlor and before coming to Nari Jibon I used to work in a beauty parlor. Then I used to receive 2500 taka per month as salary.
I have heard about Nari Jibon office from my niece who was living with us and known to a Nari Jibon staff named Ripon. I was appointed at Nari Jibon as a service staff in November-2005 and my salary was held 3000 taka per month. After coming to Nari Jibon office I got a great scope to develop my life. I was weak in English. As Nari Jibon used to provide English classes for students and staff, I started to take English class besides my initial responsibilities at office. I completed several English courses and I have participated in every English class for practicing more.
I also started to learn computer. There was an opportunity for every staff to take alternative skill at 5.00 pm to 6.00 pm every day. One staff will teach another staff which she/he knows well. I also used to learn computer. In the mean time I have completed MS office course and I used to practice almost every day. While I was learning skill at Nari Jibon office I planned that I would develop my career taking skills from Nari Jibon office.
Now I am able to read and write English well. My vocabulary is also developed. I also learned computer Ms Office course successfully. At the beginning of February-2007 I faced an interview to take job at UNDP- Kumilla office as a receptionist cum customer care. I was selected for the post. I have to join there 1st March 2007. I have already informed to the Nari Jibon authority about my job.
I am pleased with Nari Jibon Office for providing skills. I shall try to keep in touch with the Nari Jibon Office.
