Attaining Career Goal with Help of WorkBC Maple Ridge

March 13, 2023

Rose is a mature immigrant in Canada who wanted to work as an Early Childcare Worker (ECE). In August 2022, she went to the WorkBC – Maple Ridge Centre to get help reaching her goal. The staff at WorkBC helped her find immediate employment in food production at Sofina Foods while keeping her long-term goal on the radar.

While Rose was working at Sofina Foods, her Employment Placement Specialist continued to help her with:

·         Creating a resume that would get noticed by ECE employers

·         Interview preparation

·         Job search strategies

Rose’s Employment Placement Specialist continued to market her to daycare providers in Maple Ridge while she worked in her food production role. Within the first 3 weeks in her food production role, a daycare hired Rose through the Wage Subsidy Program. She is now working in the career that she desired and has been going strong for more than half a year. Rose has been enjoying her career in an industry that she loves. Well done Rose!
