Never too late to change careers

Photograph of LeanneLeanne was a tile worker for more than five years and although she was not satisfied in her career, she recognized that the job helped support her family.

One day, her boss informed her and her co-workers they would no longer be employed with the company effective almost immediately.

She took the opportunity to explore training and build on her skills.  She met with an Alberta Works Career and Employment Consultant.  They discussed her interest in caring for the elderly and options to support training as a health care aide.

Leanne completed training, including a practicum, and now has the skills to work in a field that is in demand.

Leanne said, “I’m excited for the chance to work in a field that I enjoy.”
