Tammy never gave up

Compass Career Solutions would like to introduce someone who is truly amazing, Tammy. She was referred to us because she was having a difficult time finding housing. She faced several barriers to finding housing including finances.

Working with compass helped me find a job I love

When I first started this new adventure with Compass, I was very nervous and not sure about the process. I didn’t even know what jobs I was interested in. Compass helped me prepare for future employment by improving my interview and job preparedness skills.

Gaining Work Experience

Amber is excited to work toward her employment goals with the help of her Employment Consultant, Erica. However, without formal work experience, she wanted a way to build up her experience and gain a competitive edge when applying for jobs. To help her achieve that goal, Erica connected Amber to a volunteer position with Vancouver Farmers' Market.

Justin loves his first job!

Justin came to Compass excited to find his first job.  For several months he worked with his Employment Specialist, Angela, to get him ready for his new job. They worked on preparing for the interview and how to talk to employers. Then they went out into the community to practice the skills that Justin had learned.
