How was your experience with Direction Emploi?
A friend told me about Direction Emploi and how they specialize in helping bilingual people find a career. I had a few meetings: One as an introduction, and then two more formal meetings to discuss in detail my profile, my experiences and how I could fit into the current local job market.

How did Direction Emploi help you land your current career?
First, they guided me in updating my resume, which was too detailled and difficult to understand, so it was easier to read and more attractive to potential employers. They also provided me with a complete profile of the position I was applying for—they had a precise description of the job and very good knowledge of the hiring company. The third thing is they spent a lot of time talking with me and doing interview preparation. They were always available to help, and gave me support and confidence, key assets a job seeker needs before going into any interview.

How is your career a fit for you?
It's a great fit because I am able to balance a professional and personal life. I am also able to utilize my language skills on a daily basis, something I was rarely able to do with my previous occupations.

We can't name your employer for security reasons, but it's big—a household name. What was your first day like?
Similar to a first day at school, you have a lot of anticipation and excitement. I was pleasantly surprised by how well it went—I felt a warm welcome, which helped my integration within the team.

What would you say to people looking to get into a career similar to yours?
I would strongly suggest being open-minded and willing to go out of their comfort zone. We live in a medium-sized city where the job market has its limits, so it is key that you adapt to this market and make compromises. The rewards can be surprising.
