Job Seeker Success Story

Help gaining Canadian Work Experience

Client:Shashank
Goal: Find work in field of Marketing
Challenge: Getting started in a new country
Support offered: One-on-one coaching, Job Interviews workshop, Referral for credential assessment

“They genuinely want to help and provide you with all the resources that you need.”

– Shashank, former job seeker

Situation

Shashank--a recent newcomer to Canada--was having trouble finding work in his industry. He had proven skills and experience in the field of Marketing. But he was not accustomed to the Canadian job search process. He came to VPI for guidance.

After meeting with our Career Specialist, Shashank was prepared with an action plan. He signed up for the Job Interviews workshop to get a better sense of what to expect when meeting with an employer. And to help him with his foreign-obtained degrees and experience, we referred him for a credentials assessment.

Two weeks after meeting with us, Shashank went for a job interview with the results of his assessment in hand. After a successful interview, he was hired for a position in his chosen industry and is developing valuable experience in the Canadian workforce.

If you need help returning to work, we can help. Contact us today.
