Almost Immediate Employment

November 17, 2022

Chuck moved with his family from Saskatchewan to Maple Ridge. With three teenage children, Chuck and his wife needed to find work quickly. Although Chuck’s wife was able to secure employment, Chuck”s job search was not so easy; his resume was not getting noticed and he had no personal or professional network to assist him.

Chuck received his Security Worker Licence in August 2022 and because he has more than eight years of experience, he hoped to find work as a senior security officer, security manager, operations manager or bylaw compliance officer.

Upon arrival at the Maple Ridge WorkBC Centre, he was assisted to revise his resume was directly introduced to employers. Almost immediately the Employment Placement Specialist (EPS) arranged an interview. To prepare, the EPS conducted a mock interview. As a result, the interview went very well and Chuks was offered a job the next day!

In Chuk’s words: “I’m grateful for the help received from WorkBC!”
