“VPI is the answer to all the questions an immigrant can have!”
– Arti, former job seeker
As a newcomer to Canada Arti had international experience working in the Learning and Development field. But she was having difficulty finding a job in Canada that would allow her to use her experience and gain a better understanding of the Canadian workplace.
Arti set up an appointment to come into her local VPI Working Solutions branch in Mississauga. She met with a career specialist and together they came up with a plan to prepare her for the Canadian hiring process. Arti participated in several workshops including Resume Building, Job Interview and Networking and built up her confidence by attending job fairs and speaking with employers.
After becoming better prepared, Arti went for interviews and was hired for a full-time position. Her new role allows her to use her existing skills while also developing new ones. Most importantly, she is gaining valuable Canadian workplace experience that she can use toward any future job searches.If you’re new to Canada and looking for work, we can help. Contact us today.
