Joseph is a 22 year old Vancouver resident who, after completing an Electrical Foundation Program at the College of the Rockies, could not find employment with any employer even after visiting literally dozens and dozens of them. He was frustrated and did not know what to do. In fact, he was considering giving up on his dream to be an Electrician until he discovered the STEP program.
STEP helped him find direction, interviews, focus and an employment position in the trade of Electrician…his dream trade. Joseph’s boss and employer is an established Electrician. He is efficient and has a work ethic which he demands from all his young apprentices. He said to me that Joseph is “cut from the same cloth” he is…a real workhorse!
As an outcome of working with his TES and using the STEP resources, he is working as a first year Apprentice Electrician with ICS Electric Ltd.
