Perseverance pays

Photograph of VernVern was facing a long, tough job search. Red Deer’s job market had been hit hard by the oil-price collapse.

But he kept faith, believed in himself, and took advantage of the employment services available through Alberta Works and the Bredin Centre for Learning.

"There were so many times when I wanted to give up, but I kept thinking about my family and how I wanted to keep my family together. I found so many doors were closed, but I kept trying. All my struggles finally paid off when I found a job with Atek.”

Vern is grateful for the help and support he received during his job search and is relieved to be back to work.

The Bredin Centre for Learning receives funding from Human Services’ Alberta Works program.
