Fulfilling and enjoyable career in the oilfield industry

Photograph of KatieKatie was a young adult that regularly struggled to make ends meet. Despite her hard work, she was having difficulty getting gainful employment. After meeting with a career and employment consultant at the Alberta Works Centre, Katie joined the Alberta Job Corps program. She successfully acquired all of her safety tickets and was able to find a career in the oilfield industry that she describes as fulfilling and enjoyable.

Katie states “Without the Job Corps program, young people are not going to be able to fund their tickets to move forward, particularly with oil field training. I’ve become more energetic and physically fit. I look at life differently now because I have the financial and personal freedom to do whatever I want.”
