Jobseeker finds success at the job fair:
Last year, Jasmine Doucette found a job after attending the SkillsPEI job fair. “I had been looking for work for quite a while. I researched companies, worked on my resumé, and read The Employment Journey to find out how to improve my skills, find out what employers were looking for, and where I could fit in.
“I never thought of working in retail, because I had previous experience working in a hotel. Last year at the job fair I gave my resumé to representatives of The Atlantic Superstore. I was interested in the bakery department because I like baking cakes and cookies.
“A few weeks later, I was called in for an interview, and I got the job. I was so happy, and to this day I love working at the Superstore. I like the people part the best, and it is year-round work.
“This year, I brought two friends with me to the SkillsPEI job fair to help them find the right job. All they need is a bit of encouragement.”
