First Professional Job in the Accounting Field

July 21, 2022

Arora was a receptionist for the head office of Bell Canada for three and a half years. Due to Covid, she was laid off in 2020. After being laid off, Arora enrolled in and completed a payroll training program at Douglas College.

With this training, Arora came to the Langley WorkBC Centre in January 2022 looking for assistance to connect to employers in the accounting field and to get help with her job search. Arora completed a series of job search workshops and then began working with the Centre’s Employment Placement Specialist (EPS). The EPS connected Arora with PKS Accounting Group. As Arora has no work experience in accounting, the EPS promoted the Wage Subsidy Program to support the employer to provide Arora on the job training and gain some experience. The EPS worked with the employer to establish the terms of the Wage Subsidy agreement.

Arora began her job at the Accounting firm on July 15th, 2022. Congratulations, Arora!
