Although employed, Frank was bare­ly able to pay his bills. His posi­tion as a labour­er in con­struc­tion paid min­i­mum wage and he was feel­ing stuck in his cur­rent sit­u­a­tion. He had always dreamed of appren­tic­ing for a plumber. He had rel­e­vant past expe­ri­ence but found it chal­leng­ing to break into the field. 

Once Frank became involved with the team at Com­mu­ni­ty Employ­ment Ser­vices (CES), he received sup­port to tar­get his resume and cov­er let­ter to the plumb­ing indus­try. He was also able to uti­lize free work­shops, career coun­selling, and labour mar­ket infor­ma­tion. With the sup­port of the CES team, he was able to access a net­work of local employ­ers seek­ing moti­vat­ed employ­ees to fill their hir­ing needs. 

Frank was hired by a plumb­ing employ­er and is gain­ing valu­able skills need­ed to start an appren­tice­ship. He was grate­ful for the oppor­tu­ni­ty to work in his desired field and encour­ages oth­ers to con­nect with CES. Frank looks for­ward to cre­at­ing a sta­ble future for him­self, thanks to the team at Com­mu­ni­ty Employ­ment Services.
