Increasing her professional network

Photograph of MiyukiWith a Social Work degree from the University of Calgary, Miyuki had been searching for work since September 2016. She reached out to Career Connection at Bow Valley College for in-depth career coaching, including targeted help with resumé development and interview skills. During this process, she attended a meet and greet event with Hays Recruitment, coordinated by Career Connection. Hays was recruiting case workers to go to Fort McMurray and work with Albertans affected by the 2016 forest fire disaster.

After meeting with a recruiter, Miyuki was invited for an interview at the Hays office. Prepared with new found interview skills, Miyuki was offered a case manager position. Since then, she has transitioned to a position that matches more of her qualifications.

By expanding her professional network, Miyuki connected to hiring managers seeking professionals with her skill set. “Thank you for connecting me to Hays. This opportunity increased my confidence,” says Miyuki.
