“VPI is #1 for customer service and satisfaction, they genuinely like to help people and it shows!…I felt so accepted when I went there.”
– Sharon, former job seeker
Sharon came to VPI because she was looking for a job that would allow her to help other people. She had been looking for awhile but needed help fine tuning her resume and getting to the next step.
Sharon met with our team of expert careers specialists and they came up with a plan to give her the tools and confidence she needed to land the right job.
Sharon enrolled in several online workshops through VPI’s Learning Centre, including “Job Interviews” and “Self-Assessments”. She signed up for courses with LinkedIn Learning–which is available for free for VPI program participants. These online resources allowed Sharon to progress at her own pace.
She also participated in one-on-one mock interviews to put what she learned in her workshops into practice.
With her new skills and confidence, Sharon landed an interview for a Personal Support Worker. She was successful and was hired for a temporary position that will help give her valuable experience to continue with her long-term goal of helping others.If you need help with your job search, we can help.
