AN VERY VERY INSPIRED STORY

Karan Lands Her “Dream Job”

A Working Together Success

Karan has cerebral palsy, which mainly affects her legs. She wanted help creating a strong resume and overcoming her anxiety related to her job search. That is how she joined our Working Together Program.

Working Together Participant, Karan

Shortly after, Karan was contacted for an interview at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. But she didn’t feel ready yet.

Working Together staff helped Karan prepare for potential interview questions as well as disclosing her disability. Along the way, she also learned about crafting effective resumes and cover letters. And she landed the job!

“I was really happy that I got my dream job straight out of my program,” says Karan, adding, “I am very grateful and thankful that Neil Squire’s services exist.”
