I recently moved to Canada from the United States. I thought it would be easy to get a job holding a degree and experience from the States, but I soon discovered that the Canadian job market was very competitive, and I had a very hard time to find a job. I am very grateful I came across The Career Foundation. I have heartfelt gratitude for Kathy and Terra for their support and effort in helping me find the job I have always wanted. They have helped me with career guidance, interviews, building my job profile, and restructuring my résumé in the most efficient way to tackle the competitive Canadian job market. They have done an amazing job making it a lot easier for my profile to be seen, and for my skills to become transparent to recruiters and employers.
I would recommend The Career Foundation to anyone and everyone who has similar experience and wants to start their career; who has skills but going through a hard time; and who wants to stand out from the competition and be selected for tons of amazing opportunities out there!

I started dealing with The Career Foundation (Courtney McCann) about 5 years ago. This lady knows her stuff. She made every effort to help and assist me in anyway possible over the years. I work within the arboriculture industry and Courtney helped me hire young staff out of the program offered through Humber College. I recommend this company and staff for any hiring requirements you might have.

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.

I am new to the country and Career Foundation was one of the many places I went to for support with my job search. It was at The Career Foundation where I met Syeda Manisa Kabir. She really helped me by addressing all my issues, providing me with useful information, sending job-related and event-related emails, etc. She is a friendly person and helped me gain confidence by making me prepare for job interviews. Thanks to her, my experience with The Career Foundation was a great one. I highly recommend Syeda and The Career Foundation to all newcomers.

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

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.

I want to thank the Career Foundation for their support while I was unemployed due to Covid-19. I was searching for training, courses, and guidance on my options. I signed up and was assigned to Mary Romero in my district. I started with a webinar workshop, the slides were easy to follow and the instructor, Jeremy Stanley, was clear and well informed on the topic. Mary then put me in touch with Joe Uteck to review and provide suggestions to update my resume. I’m truly grateful to The Career Foundation for all of their support. If you are out of work and don’t know where to start or need a little help with your future career, I highly recommend The Career Foundation. I’m happy to announce that I was successful in finding a job only 4 months later. Thank you Mary, Jeremy, Joe, Jacob and all of the staff at The Career Foundation!
