« The counsellor and my colleagues did everything so that I could succeed. »
Upon arriving in Quebec two years ago, Grâce had a lot of trouble finding work even though she managed her own store in the Ivory Coast. Her neighbor suggested the job training program at Renaissance and even offered to drive her to the head office so she could register in person.
“My training at the Galeries Normandie store was nothing but joy. The counsellor and my colleagues did everything so that I could succeed. The manager gave me a lot of advice and was always encouraging and congratulated me for my work.”
Always positive, she quickly demonstrated her know-how and her leadership. “The best advice that they gave me was to show me how we should speak to the client. That gave me a lot of confidence.”
At the end of her training, she found a job posted at a Winners store. “I went to see my counsellor and he helped me right away to prepare my interview. The next day, they called me back to offer me the job!” Since then, Grâce has worked there as a clerk-cashier. “I know that I am good at this job. I like it!”
