Thank you a thousand times over my friend. I am off to celebrate. I begin work Monday morning.
Pay it Forward
A big THANK YOU to a recent client who has decided to #PayItForward. We were able to provide a grocery gift card to a client in need. Now that client is employed and doing well has donated back the gift cards for another client in need. What goes around comes around.

For Gina Adams the best is yet to come. Gina’s story is a story of determination. A roller coaster ride for someone so young, Gina moved to Madoc from the Ajax area with her family a few years back to find country living quite different from the big city. Even though Gina had graduated from College with a Medical Administrative Services Diploma, she found it difficult to find work in her field. Gina did well in her job as a Production Worker; however, found herself laid off due to work shortage. Feeling the disappointment of wanting to work in her field and losing her job, Gina wondered what would be in store for her. She contacted Career Edge to ask about their new Youth Job Connection Program and was booked with Rachel Kim in our Campbellford office to discuss her future. Rachel knew of an opportunity for an Internship with Community Living that Gina was the perfect fit for. The timing couldn’t have been better. The Internship was closing in two days and Gina applied, interviewed as was offered the job within a week. Gina has a new start! She will be able to gain administrative experience and her future is bright! Congratulations Gina! We are all cheering for you!
What a wonderful success story to share! Ashley graduated from Georgian College with a diploma in Graphic Design. She completed a two month placement at Gel Creative through her program as a placement student, however; she lacked job related experience in her field. Having worked customer service at Canadian Tire and Tim Hortons, Ashley came to us with the hope of getting Graphic Design experience. Her passion, positive attitude, and devotion to doing whatever it took to obtain a position in her field have paid off. Thanks to Career Edge, Fine Line Design in her home town, the Youth Education Fund, and Ashley’s determination, she has obtained permanent employment in her Graphic Design field. Congratulations Ashley!
