Get Fast-Tracked into Your Next Job
March 24, 2021
WorkBC Langley and Maple Ridge have initiated “fast-track employment services”. These services are targeted at jobseekers with career experience who need some quick support, but not the full suite of services. Fast-track clients may just need their resumes polished, some introductions to employers or some interview practice.
Recently two fast-track clients were placed into jobs with assistance from the Centres. Capstone Asset Management was seeking an Executive Assistant. The Centre’s Business Community Liaison shared the posting with the Centre’s community partners and networks. Langley Community Services Society put forward a candidate, Julie. Julie’s resume was sent to the employer and she was called right away for an interview. As a result, Julie was introduced to a WorkBC Career Coach who helped Julie prepare for the interview scheduled for the next day. At the same time, the Liaison was working with the employer to access the Wage Subsidy Program.
Julie did very well in the first interview and was booked for a second interview and was offered the job on the Friday! The WorkBC Employment Specialist quickly completed the Wage Subsidy paperwork and Julie started work on Monday. Congratulations to Julie and kudos to the WorkBC staff for swift action and seamless support!
Gary, an Internationally Trained IT Engineer from India, came to the Langley WorkBC Centre with an excellent resume. Although he had years of experience in India and a very good resume, Gary could not find work using his education, skills and experience and was working as a security guard. Centre staff marketed Gary to five IT employers and two employers quickly responded. Gary impressed one employer very much and he was offered a full-time job in IT Service Support at ZE Power. Gary is thrilled to have found this great job, especially during the pandemic, and is very thankful to the staff for their great support.
