Anna is a college student who was looking for a rewarding job over the summer, to get some valuable experience and to help pay for her school expenses. She was struggling to find a job on her own, but came across Springboard’s Summer Jobs Service online, and attended one of their registration sessions in February. Springboard counselors provided her with the guidance she needed, and helped her finalize her resume and practice her interview skills, in preparation for their big March Break job fair. At the fair, Anna met with a representative from Cineplex Odeon and was able to secure an interview. After a second interview, she was hired, and spent her summer making new friends, paying off her school expenses and securing valuable experience and references. Anna credits Springboard for helping to build her confidence. “They showed me that anybody can be successful once you make that effort… they made me believe in myself!”
