WorkBC Staff Helpful and Encouraging

February 8, 2023

Josua immigrated to Canada in 2021. This young immigrant struggled to find employment with his lack of Canadian work experience. He found himself at the WorkBC – Maple Ridge Centre seeking assistance to find a position in Office Administration or Customer Service.

With the help of WorkBC, Josua:

·         Created a marketable resume and cover letter

·         Explored his transferable skills

·         Practiced interview skills through mock interviews

·         Explored the hidden job market to find unadvertised positions

·         Connected to the Wage Subsidy Program to help him secure employment

Josua interviewed with a pool care company and was offered employment as a Billing Analyst. After 12-weeks, Josua is enjoying his new role.

“I’m so grateful for the help and support that I have received from WorkBC. From the beginning, the staff were helpful and encouraging. They pointed me in the right direction. I took small steps that lead to getting a job. They helped me improve my resume and create a cover letter. They helped me search for a job and successfully prepare for my interview. I really appreciate everything they have done!”
