Job Seeker Success Story

Finding the right job quickly

Client:Narvir
Goal: Find a job to gain experience
Challenge: Difficulty getting interviews
Support offered: Resume support, one-on-one career counselling

“VPI helped me secure a golden opportunity in the most efficient way possible.”

– Narvir, former job seeker

Situation

Looking to earn money for school and gain some real-world work experience, Narvir had been applying for jobs on job boards but had not been called in for any interviews.

After seeing a job opportunity posted by VPI on behalf of one of our employers, Narvir scheduled an appointment to come in and see how we could help him with his job search.

Narvir met with one of our expert Career Specialists and together they worked on developing Narvir's resume. While his resume was current, it was not tailored to the industry or any of the specific jobs he was applying for.

With his revised resume, Narvir began applying for jobs again. Almost instantly, he received an interview for an office administrative role. Within a few days of coming in to talk to a Career Specialist, Narvir had been offered and accepted a job.

If you're having difficulty finding the right job, we can help. Contact us today for help with your resume.
