An Express to Success Story

On the 6th of July, 10:06 in the morning. I received an email from Aaron informing me that someone had dropped out of the program during the first day and had a spot available. Later that day I had my interview with Aaron and I was in for the ride. Yes, I almost did not make it to this program. Thinking back about it, I am really grateful that things worked out and I made it, otherwise I would have missed out on so many things, technical, and personal.

I’m sure many of the members of this program share the same sentiment as me when I say I have learned so many things from the curriculum, Aaron our facilitator and the other members.

I learned:

  • To make my resume more attractive
  • To express myself better to help others understand me through the assessments
  • How to better prepare for interviews
  • Occupational First Aid
  • Conflict Resolution
  • WorksafeBC WHMIS Occupational First Aid
  • To network better
  • Where to find opportunities with the resources the program shared with us
  • My self-worth and increased my self-confidence.

And many more skills and lessons that for now I might not recognize that I have learned from the Express to Success program, but will one day appreciate down the road!

Over all I had a wonderful time, learned a great deal of things, weather it be technical or just life lessons from Aaron or the other members of the group, and I am truly grateful of the time in Express to Success.

For members of Express to Success, please keep in touch!
