- Position: Financial Assistant
After graduating in 2005, I was unsure of what I wanted to take in college.
I was offered a summer position at my Uncles oil and gas company doing administration while his administrator left for holidays. I was then offered another position through family and acquaintances in Fort McMurray doing Safety Administration. From there, I quickly advanced and was promoted to different positions including Site Administration, Payroll and Cost Control.
After working in Fort McMurray for 3 years I decided I wanted a change from the travel, seclusion and camp life so I made my way to Edmonton. I had a position as an Executive Administrator with an engineering company then applied to a job closer to home as an Operations coordinator with Canadian Helicopters.
I have always wanted to return to B.C., so I made my way to Victoria, B.C, where I stared looking into college courses since I realized I would have a better opportunity at better paying jobs, and could work towards the career I've always wanted in Human Resources.
I applied for the Business Administration - Management Option program in September of 2012 and with the help of MNBC, completed my program in early April of 2014. I put my resume on the Fort St. John indeed web page and I was recruited for a job in a matter of days. I completed a phone interview the day after I wrote my last exam and was offered the position as a Financial Assistant, which I started at the beginning of May.
I returned closer to home to be near my family and I am now in the process of buying my first home.
I couldn't have done this without the help of MNBC and the Metis Em ployment & Training program.
I will be forever grateful and thankful for their assistance with my journey to get where I am today!
