WorkBC Support and Guidance Boosts Confidence
June 29, 2020
“WorkBC in Langley supported me in every step. It was hard to be unemployed for over 6 months and I felt more confident with WorkBC support and guidance.”
Paul was guided by staff at WorkBC Langley to apply for Employment Insurance. After that, Paul became a WorkBC client and attended the job search and interview skills workshops offered by the Langley Centre. With a polished resume and revitalized job search skills, Paul was getting interviews but, unfortunately, not landing a job. His Career Coach referred him to the WorkBC Employment Placement Specialist to get additional support and to connect with employers and possibly access the Wage Subsidy Program.
Paul contacted more employers with the offer of accessing the Wage Subsidy Program. Les Hall Filter, a large industrial filtration product supplier became interested and contacted the Employment Placement Specialist.
A Wage Subsidy agreement was negotiated and signed, and Paul is now working with Les Hall Filter and being trained on the industry’s products and software.
With this new knowledge and skills and ongoing support from staff at WorkBC Langley, Paul has happily restarted his career.
