Sherry arrived in Canada from India in 2016. Although she had five years of experience in Software Engineering, she decided to switch careers and, in 2018, she entered the HR Management Program at Simon Fraser University. With no experience in the HR field, however, Sherry struggled to find employment and came to WorkBC Langley for assistance.
Sherry met with a WorkBC Employment Placement Specialist (EPS) who provided information on job search and effective job applications. The EPS coached Sherry on how to best present herself and her limited experience in the HR sector to employers. The EPS connected Sherry with an employment placement agency, IS2 Workforce Solutions, and helped her secure a temporary position. After two months, Sherry was offered a full-time permanent position as a Recruiter with IS2.
Sherry is very happy in her new career and with the support she receive from WorkBC. In a message from Sherry to her EPS, she said, “I am forever thankful to you for putting me in touch with IS2….it would not have been possible without you.”
