Mr. Noh's Journey of Success with Resilience

Aircraft Technician

Before coming to Canada, I worked as an Air Craft Technician in Korea. When I came to Canada, I started working at Tim Hortons, but it was not what I had looked for.  I moved here with my wife and son. It was very hard to support my family with my salary. Living in BC requires a lot of resources with high rentals and heavily priced groceries. My salary was not enough to live in BC with my family. I decided to look for a new job with a better salary with the hope to return to my previous profession.

Firstly, I tried to contact various organizations like Work BC Guildford and took help from my friends to prepare for getting a new job. Secondly, I made a resume and a cover letter with the help of my Case Manager at WorkBC. They provided a workshop on how I should make a resume and cover letter. The counsellor helped me make the required changes in my documents. Thirdly, I tried to search for a lot of hiring posts in the Aircraft industry and applied for these. I prepared for the interview myself. Finally, a few companies gave me an opportunity to appear for a job interview.

WorkBC Guildford helped me in drafting my resume, cover letter and reference. Moreover, my case manager kept modifying my resume and cover letter as per need.

Finally, I had a virtual interview for hiring. After 2 days, I received the job offer for Aircraft Technician. It is an entry-level job in this industry, but I am happy to return to my previous career. I was also provided with financial support like basic tools, steel-toed shoes and a gas fee to start work. It made me comfortable to start a new job as my financial burden was reduced.

It was a wonderful experience with WorkBC. My family is very happy for me to be starting the job that I wished for.
