SUCCESS STORIES

Seeker

Carolyne came to see one of the Employment Specialists at La Clé de l'emploi, Janet, in November 2014, because she needed guidance in her job search, and help in updating her resume and cover letter. She applied to some job postings in December without success. She came back to see Janet on the morning of January 15 because she saw a job posting that interested her, and asked Janet help to tweak her cover letter and resume for this potential job.

Employer

One of the younger clients of Northern Lights Canada (Bracebridge) completed his Forestry and Environmental Resource Management Diploma.  For approximately 6 months he searched for a job in his field and was unsuccessful as he did not have work experience.  Through the Youth Employment Fund we found him a position at a local timber mill.  His new employer will be providing him with additional training and the experience he requires.
