As a recent graduate in the Computer Systems Technology field, Edwin had very little experience, which created an employment challenge that might have seemed daunting to some. However working as a team with the Career Development Specialist and Job Developer at Goodwill, Edwin was able to surmount the barriers to his employment.
Due in great part to Edwin’s positive attitude, he now finds himself successfully employed at Criticall Ontario. Without his full participation in his job search, proactive approach to targeting specific employers who were open to his skills and qualifications, perhaps his story wouldn’t have been so bright in today’s economy.
Edwin has proven that given a positive attitude and determination, coupled with a little assistance, independence and dignity are alive and well in Hamilton.
