Job Seeker Success Story

Support to find work in your region

Client:Greg
Goal: Find work in local region
Challenge: Landing an interview

“VPI is the very best employment service you can find. I am 100% satisfied with the results.”

– Greg, former job seeker

Situation

Greg had been looking for work for several months before coming to VPI. He was seeking a job in tech within his local area. He had been applying for jobs, but had difficulty landing an interview.

Greg met with a Career Specialist who developed a plan for him to meet his objective. Greg attended Resume Building and Cover letter workshops and received advice and assistance to tailor his search for the local area.

Shortly after, Greg landed an interview with a local technology company. Greg aced his interview and was offered a position. As Greg put it, "As soon as I applied what I was taught, I got an interview and then the job."
