Calgary Career Hub

“It’s OK to share where you are at and it’s OK to give yourself permission to be vulnerable. I so appreciated the staff at the Calgary Career Hub because I could tell I was more than just another client. They took a vested interest in me and the staff were my biggest cheerleaders; my success was their success!” “I’ve learned not to fear where you are at and to be honest to receive the help that you need. It’s hard!”

Akos

Calgary Career Hub

"I didn’t come to learn and go away; I implemented what I learned and put in the hard work required and it paid off. I learned a lot about networking and using social media in the job search. I got a job through LinkedIn which I wasn’t utilizing before coming to the Career Hub. CCH is a good resource for people looking for a job. They support with resumes, interviews and more. There were lots of people supporting me. The employee’s support, advice and encouragement, and kindness really helped a lot. I felt less stressed. Meeting other people looking for work made me feel that I was not alone. The Career Hub environment was motivating."

Brian

WorkBC

Brian knew he was capable of more, but felt that his physical disability and speech impediment were limiting his choices. “I am appreciative of the fact that there are programs that exist that want to help people with disabilities and realize that their disabilities do not define them; that they are capable of some much more than they think they are." Brian met with a WorkBC Customized Employment Consultant who suggested various program and certifications to increase his experience. “The certificates gave me the necessary skills to have a greater impact at work. I also started to gain confidence in my abilities and see myself for what I can do, not what I struggle to do.” Through a work experience placement, Brian was able to gain the experience he needed and is now employed full time. "Even though you may have challenges in getting a job, there is a place for you and the people at WorkBC are here to help you find it, and they will not stop until they find the right job for you.”
