Gaining confidence to succeed opened the doors

Photograph of OsniOsni is proud to manage his invisible disability, although not always is it easy.

It used to be really hard for Osni to get and keep jobs. His anxiety and nervousness often overwhelmed him. But once he connected with the government funded EmployAbilities employment services program in Vegreville, they helped him get the personal tools he needed to gain confidence with himself and his abilities.

EmployAbilities helped Osni with his resume, his interviewing skills and cold calls to employers. Once he gained the skills he needed to succeed in the labour market, despite his disability, Osni attended a job fair sponsored by Alberta Works. As a result, Osni connected with an employer who offered him a job.

Today, Osni is very thankful for the support he received. The full time position on an assembly line allows him to be fully financially independent.
