Blessed to Have Landed a Job

March 26, 2024

Benedict is a newcomer to British Columbia. He recently relocated to Maple Ridge, BC from Smithers, BC. Before moving to Canada, Benedict was trained as a homeopath. Unfortunately, his training was not recognized in BC.

Benedict lacked local connections and found job search in BC difficult. He found his digital skills a challenge to his job search and needed help. After reaching out to WorkBC, Benedict received the support he needed to find meaningful employment. The WorkBC Centre helped him:

  • Create a marketable resume and cover letter
  • Provided mock interviews to give feedback on interview questions
  • Offered job leads and available community resources

Benedict is now employed with Fraser Health as a Food Service Worker. He started as a casual/on-call and is now getting over 30 hours per week. “I am blessed to have landed a job with the Fraser Health Authority,” Benedict says.

We are so happy for you. You worked hard and you’re on your way!
