An Employer's Success Story…
[Translation] "Christine St-Arnaud of Trois-Rivières demonstrated all her capabilities with the task at hand, especially considering her great determination to jump out of her home province for the first time in her life! Once she had begun her job, Christine provided flawless and collaborative assistance. She was always first to lend a hand – briefly put, she always did a "little extra" for our small organization. Among her accomplishments are her contributions to our organization: the drafting of company profiles that provide our members with increased visibility, her participation in Global Fest (a multicultural festival in Calgary), recruiting new members, conducting research and document preparation. Additionally, she completed a photo montage that will be used to promote the province during our travel shows on a national and international level. Christine’s stay was brief but intense, and we are very grateful to the Young Canada Works program allowing us to obtain valuable and quality assistance."
