I worked in an office environment for most of my adult life and the last 17 years at a rental equipment company. I started as an Administrative assistant and worked my way up to Operations Manager. In 2016, the company did a financial restructure and middle management (my job) was eliminated. When I started applying for jobs I wasn’t even getting called for interviews. Most of the employers were looking for certification and I didn’t have any. I had learned on the job with no formal training. I decided I needed to get some certification and was accepted into the Canadian Vocational training Centre. I worked very hard and graduated with honors.
I am very proud to say that I have received a job offer from ICBC and will be starting in July. Thank you again CVTC.
