Changing his life for the better

Photograph of DavidDavid wanted to change his life for the better. He was unemployed and wrestling with mental health and addictions when he approached JobLinks Employment Centre for help.

Celest, his Employment Specialist, connected David to a counsellor. She also helped him get appropriate work clothing through local charitable organizations and set up an account with the Food Bank. David took basic computer courses and JobLinks workshops that helped him get ready for his return to the job market. Celest then helped him update his resumé, prepare for job interviews and look for work. And all of their hard work paid off. David is now employed with Lethbridge Exhibition Park.

"JobLinks has provided me with many services including training. These services have given me my life back."

JobLinks Employment Centre is funded in part by the Government of Alberta.
