“I learned not to be so hard on myself, and that my skills and education are more valuable than I believe. Working with VPI was a very helpful and pleasant experience.”
–Kimberly, former job seeker
Kimberly was looking for full time employment after being laid off during the COVID-19 pandemic. After searching for a few months, she heard about VPI’s services and got in touch.
Kimberly met with one of our expert Employment Generalists, and together, they worked on a plan. With her Employment Generalists help, Kimberly perfected her resume and Linkedin Profile.
She also participated in online workshops like Self-Reliance, Critical Thinking, and Digital Literacy to help her boost confidence with her job search.
Because we work directly with employers, we have access to a pool of open job opportunities, even during a pandemic. Kimberly’s Employment Generalist sent her jobs related to her interest and helped build her confidence by coaching her through the interview process.
Although Kimberly’s initial interview did not end with a job offer, her confidence made such an impression that the employer found another suitable role for her and hired her.For more information on how we can help with your job search, Contact us today.
