“I was able to pursue my passion because VPI helped me create a path. The level of customer service is high and they are very committed.”
– Mallika, former job seeker
Mallika came to VPI for help with her long-term career goal of working with new immigrants as a social worker. She was having difficulty finding work in her chosen field, in part, because her credentials are from another country.
She met with one of our expert Career Specialists and together they came up with a plan for Mallika to return to school with support from the Second Career program.
Second Career is a government-funded program that helps successful applicants find new jobs in in-demand industries by providing funding for training.
Mallika and her Career Specialist worked together to develop her Second Career application–including highlighting her skills, participating in VPI workshops, and emphasizing her past experience.
Mallika’s application was successful. She was able to return to school and is now one step closer to her achieving her career goals.For more information on how we can help you with your job search, contact us today.
