Testimonials

The Ann Terry Project helped me to identify my marketable skills, prepare a dynamite resume, and how to use my network to find job leads. They taught me how to prepare to go out and market my self to employers and that preparing for a job interview requires, research, knowing yourself and the skills you have to offer an employer and lots and lots of practise. The Ann Terry Project helped me to land my dream job.


When I lost my job after 17 years because my position became redundant, The Ann Terry Project helped me to develop my job goals and work on a plan to get there. My plan included returning to school for two years, but now I am working full time doing the work I want to do.


I believe that my ability to find employment has been enhanced by having a women only community based agency available to me.


Every meeting I had was great. Any questions I had, any reservations I had about interviews or application processes were treated with the utmost importance and respect. I never once felt rushed or that my needs were unimportant.


It was nice to be able to talk openly about personal issues and not have to worry about it being dismissed as “women’s worrying” or the like. Talking with the counsellors there has given me a boost in self-confidence.


TESTIMONIALS

Because without that service (Ann Terry Project) I don’t know where I would have been. The contacts I made…I still have today.


My experience was wonderful. I had previously went to the government run Student Employment Center in my city, and felt that I was just another number in a database looking for work. They were never helpful in my job search. The Ann Terry Project was the polar opposite. They made me feel welcome and that they were genuinely invested in assisting me in my job search. I recommended their services to a number of my friends. The counselors were incredibly knowledgeable and they have created a very calm and welcoming, as well as fun atmosphere which made my visits quite enjoyable.


OUR LOCATION The location of the office has changed over the years as has the faces of the staff who provide the services and the dedicated volunteers who continue to sponsor this Project for women in our community. What doesn’t change is the Ann Terry Society’s commitment to provide specialized women centered career development and counselling services for women.
