Top three things to getting a job? Confidence, confidence, confidence!

Photograph of MikeSix years ago, Mike was working as an IT specialist and caring for an ill family member. Taking a toll on his health, Mike took time away from work to consider his options.

Mike decided he needed a change and completed training as an environmental technologist, but has been out of the workforce for five years and has no experience in his new field of choice. Mike was uncertain how to demonstrate to employers that he is reliable and capable.

He attended an Alberta Works Centre and met with a Career and Employment Consultant who helped him identify his strengths and how to be successful during interviews.

Mike attended resume writing and interview skills workshops at Alberta Works and learned how to answer the tough and challenging questions from employers.

Mike said, “Alberta Works helped me get started and build my confidence.”
