"I have had a very pleasant experience interacting with the SOPA Intake Counsellor who responded to my request very promptly, arranged an online meeting and quickly provided a follow-up. After the meeting she took into consideration the specifics of my resume and my job search requirements and compiled a whole list of useful links to information resources, on a wide range of topics, from finding accommodation in my future province to tax benefits, certification in my area of expertise, volunteering opportunities, and many, many more things that are relevant to my situation. I am very grateful for her help and I feel more reassured about my settlement now after the session. She was much more helpful than I expected. She also referred me to an online SOPA workshop devoted to job search strategies and targeting one’s resumes. Hopefully, I shall gain some useful insight through the workshop as well. Another good thing is that now I feel that if I have any questions, I know where to turn to, instead of wandering blind and fumbling in the dark."
"Thank you so much for the extensive and detailed list which covers practically everything that we discussed. I would like to say that I enjoyed our session and I appreciate your openness and kindness. If there’s any survey I have to fill out to rate services that you provide, I’ll be more than happy to do that!"
"May I sincerely appreciate you for the excellent service you gave me during our conversation. It was nice discussing with you as you went as far as giving me much more than I expected to guide me in settling down fast. Your service was excellent."
"I just want to thank you for your support and great feedback you provided during my job finding process. I got a job offer to work in my field which is a great opportunity for me. You reviewed my resume when I was applying for this job, specifically. You also provided me with great feedback on the mock interview when I was going for my actual job interview. Your help is much appreciated and if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have gotten this job. The workshop was also beneficial. It trained me on how to search properly for jobs, how to network properly, and how to present myself professionally to prospect employers. I want to also thank World Skills for offering such a great service to the community."
"I can't express enough how awesome our meeting was. Our conversation really boosted my confidence and made me feel like I had someone rooting for me. I was surprised there are so many opportunities available I hadn't known about before. Finding employment can be a very defeating experience, so it was amazing to talk to someone who understood that and truly cared about helping me accomplish my goals. Thank you so much for the support and guidance. World Skills is lucky to have you on their team!"

"Avec l’aide de Compétences Mondiales, j’ai apprécié d’avoir appris la technique SAR (Situation, Actions, Résultats). Si vous voulez un secret, cette méthode est la clé de toute chose. Je l’ai intégrée dans la reformulation de mon nouveau CV, dans la lettre de motivation et même durant l’entrevue. Je me suis ainsi démarquée des autres candidats en personnalisant mes réponses et en donnant des détails pertinents. J’ai eu un accompagnent et un soutien personnalisés des conseillers. J’ai pu compter sur eux pour préparer mes différents documents et me pratiquer pour l’entrevue (...)"
