Anna

Overcoming physical barriers and finding rewarding employment

Photograph of AnnaAnna was new to the Slave Lake area and visited the local Alberta Works Centre for help finding a full-time job.

Despite her physical barriers, it was clear to Alberta Works staff that Anna was determined to work. Anna was provided assistance with her resumé, interview skills, and job search.

In the meantime, the Slave Lake Alberta Works Centre was granted the opportunity to hire an intern under the Employment First program: a Government of Alberta initiative to promote employment for persons with disabilities.

Staff encouraged Anna to apply for the Employment First administrative support position and she was the successful candidate. Anna has became an integral staff member of the Slave Lake Alberta Works team and has been gaining valuable work experience.

Anna said, “I wouldn’t be where I am, if it wasn’t for the help and support of the people at Alberta Works.”
