Aileen

Finding a job and succeeding

Photograph of AileenAileen was unemployed and struggling to find a job due to her disability that makes it difficult for her to understand and use spoken language. She attended Being Human Services' Untapped Potential workshop and used the job-search strategies she learned there to find a job at West Edmonton Mall.

However, Aileen called Being Human Services a few months later for help. She was struggling with the responsibilities of the job due to her disability. Being Human Services staff spoke to her employer about the supports that she needs. The employer was very supportive and open. Aileen's employer was able to accommodate her needs and she is now very happy. In January 2016, Aileen won her employer's "Over the Top Award" for her consistent positive attitude and effort at her job.
