What do our graduates think of the program?

“Thank you so much for everything. It was an amazing experience of being a part of the girls and boys club. It has taught me so much. I have a job today and it’s because of you people. I learnt so many new things that were really helpful for me for getting the job.” – H

“Thank you so much!! The Employment Now program has benefitted me a lot. It has boosted my confidence and my personality for interviews. I would give the worst and basic answers before to my interviewer but this program trained me very well for the answers and gave me a complete makeover. I am so thankful for the job coaches for their immense support. I’ve been to two interviews after the program ended and was able to get hired at both of them ie Armani Exchange and Canada Post. I will always let people know about this program so they can get the most of it as well.” – S

“You will love this program. Just do it, you won't regret it” – A

“Most other people who got hired at Best Buy…had to have many job interviews to land the job. But through EMPLOYMENT NOW I was able to get hired with just one interview” – A

“I like how everyday is a different topic and the structure of the program is in a loop, where if you miss one, you can make up for what you missed.” – L
