– Pauline, former job seeker
Pauline was working as a cleaner. She was looking for a way to improve her skills and put her international training to use. Her long-term career goal is to return to school to work in Social Services.
She heard about VPI from a friend and got in touch with one of our expert Career Specialists. They discussed her goals and came up with a plan to improve Pauline’s resume, develop her interview skills, and acquire an International Credential Assessment.
Pauline secured an International Credential Assessment—which opened up more job options. With her Career Specialist’s support, she started applying for Administrative Assistant positions.
To help her prepare for interviews, Pauline participated in mock interviews and practised some common computer skills with IBM Kenexa Assess—a skills-assessment computer program available to VPI clients.
Following a successful interview, Pauline was hired as an Executive Assistant and is working toward her goal of returning to school and working in Social Services.If you need help with your job search, we can help. Contact us today.
