The Career Foundation has been very responsive and resourceful in helping me seek employment opportunities. I would particularly like to mention Maegan Oelsner who was my consultant during this phase. Maegan went out of her way to support me and prepared me extremely well for interviews and kept in constant contact. From résumé writing to mock interviews and general career advice, I could always rely on her incessant assistance. The experience made me feel like an individual rather than just another number looking for a job and Maegan was more like a friend and a coach rather than a consultant.

What I love about the Youth Job Connection program at The Career Foundation is the staff’s unrelenting dedication and persistence in helping clients to achieve their goals, as well as their unmatched ability to treat and see clients in their greatest potential. The Career Foundation staff truly care about every single one of us and they strive every day to be there for us and guide us to the best of their ability. They have helped me when I couldn’t help myself and that’s the reason why I thank and respect them so much. #THANKYOU

My Employment Specialist supported me to stay positive and motivated me to continue my efforts. These efforts have since paid off! Two weeks ago, I received two fantastic job offers in the same week! I have started working in my dream job and I couldn’t be happier or more grateful for the guidance that I received from The Career Foundation. On this difficult journey, it was so nice to know that I had someone close by rooting for me who really cared about me reaching the finish line!

The Career Foundation’s General Carpenter Pre-Apprenticeship program has allowed me to pursue a career in the field I have always wanted to be a part of but did not have the necessary skills or resources to pursue. This program has allowed me to obtain general carpentry skills that have made me more employable, allowed me to make numerous connections in the carpentry field and meet great friends. This program has pushed me to take on difficult challenges that have made me a better person and carpenter. I am really looking forward to beginning my field placement and putting all my new skills to work. I would no doubt recommend this program to those who are eligible.

Shauna’s recommendation made all the difference. I am so grateful for all the help that Shauna has given me and how patient she has been with me. She is professional, diligent and extremely competent. She was thorough and consistently went the extra mile to help me find the right position. She was great because she really took the time to get to know me and put me forward for a job that suited my skills and personality. Also, she promptly updated me with the progress. I personally thanked her because, whatever the result, I really felt well supported throughout the process.
