This chapter focuses on the trainees themselves—their motivations, perceptions, and problems. It discusses the obstacles that must be overcome and the supports needed for candidates to be able to participate in the corporate world. Those who were ready to enter into training were already motivated. The availability of jobs was a critical factor in encouraging trainees to complete the program.
