Nabeel was referred to YES through EIA and had a lot of experience in working in kitchens, however due to an injury he was looking to pivot to administrative work where he wouldn’t need to be on his feet or working physical labour. We worked together on his resume and learning to write cover letters, and in early April he was able to land a full-time contract with a customer service job where he could be working from home virtually during the Covid-19 pandemic. When contacting us to update on being hired, he expressed gratitude to the staff at YES in saying “You guys are the best program I’ve been referred to; you’ve been so helpful and you actually get back to me quickly which I haven’t experienced anywhere else"

Caileigh lost her long term job at a boarding school in April due to Covid-19 with very little notice, and knew that there would be no chance of returning to that job before the coming fall. She registered with YES to help tailor her resume for a career path change so she could apply for jobs in the non-profit sector as she wanted to be helping during the pandemic through front line services. Caileigh also received virtual services to assist with her cover letters and interview prep before being offered a job as the Executive Director at a homeless shelter.
