Scharie

Your career is a life long journey

Photograph of ScharieAfter a few years of working in the same industry, Scharie decided it was time for a change. She turned to Aboriginal Futures for support with her career planning and work search.

Through one-on-one career counselling and participating in the Job Club, Scharie was able to develop the skills needed to effectively search for a career and prepare for job interviews.

Aboriginal Futures helps clients prepare for job interviews by setting up one-on-one mock interviews with real employers. Scharie did so well in her mock interview with RBC Financial that they offered her a real interview and eventually hired her as a Client Services Representative.

“The [Aboriginal Futures] program helped me succeed in interviews and receive a job offer from RBC. Through the whole process I gained confidence in myself and developed skills that will help me succeed in my future,” said Schaire.

Aboriginal Futures receives funding from Alberta Works.
