When searching for a job, staying motivated can be difficult. But if you’re living in Vancouver, one of the best places to work on your job search has been right under your nose this whole time.

Imagine a clean, comfortable environment outside of your home where you can be around other people, you don’t need to spend any money, and the high-speed internet doesn’t cut out after an hour. You can access photocopying and printing for free, and you can even use the desktop computers if you don’t have your own laptop.

If you need that boost to step up your job search, visit a WorkBC Centre for free guidance including career planning advice, job search workshops, interview practice, resume advising, and more. Not only will this help you feel more motivated during your job search, but you will be better prepared and learn valuable lessons along the way.

Daniel had recently moved to BC seeking a career change, facing struggles with what direction to take his career in. He struggled with how to effectively express his skills through a resume, and felt that this prevented him from finding full-time employment. Then he attended workshops at a WorkBC Centre operated by YWCA Metro Vancouver and saw immediate results.

“They gave me confidence in expressing myself and also the confidence to go after what I really wanted in my career,” he says. Daniel is now fully employed and is looking forward to a long career at his current position, which he calls a perfect fit for his values.
