Goal: Start a new career
Challenge: Training and finding a job
Support offered: Second Career program; one-on-one mock interview
“Amazing experience. I was hired on my first interview after my mock interview.”
– Carla, former job seeker
Carla had previously worked in the transportation industry, but could no longer continue with the career and was looking for something new. She heard about VPI and the Second Career program and got in contact with us.
Second Career is a government-funded program that provides financial support for people who are unemployed or laid-off people who are trying to start a new career. The program includes funding to help pay for training and education. As a designated service provider, VPI is able to help applicants assess their suitability for the program and navigate the application process.
Together with our team of expert Career Specialists, Carla came up with a plan to apply for the Second Career Program with the goal of working in the dental industry.
With our help, Carla’s application was successful and she received funding to enrol in a dental assistant program at a local college. As she came closer to completing her program, she continued to work with her Career Specialist to start applying for suitable jobs and practising her interview skills in mock interviews.
Shortly after receiving her diploma, Carla was hired in the industry of her choice.If you need help with your job search, we can help. Contact us today.
