Job Seeker Success Story

Helping You Find Work Closer to Home

Client:Greg
Goal: Find work close to home
Challenge: Obtaining an interview
Support offered: One-on-one job search support; resume and cover letter support

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

–Greg, former job seeker

Situation

For several months, Greg had been looking for work seeking a job in tech that is closer to home. After months of applying to jobs, with no luck in landing an interview - he decided to reach out to VPI for help.

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 technology company that's in his area. 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.”
