AXIS connected her with Boom IT in July for a potential opportunity through the Internship Placement Program. Both Vincy and the employer felt it would be a good fit and she started her internship within a few weeks from her interview. During her placement, Vincy worked very hard in developing new skills to contribute to the team. Following her placement, Vincy was hired as a full-time Web Developer with Boom IT.
Vincy described her experience with AXIS:
“AXIS opened the door to a whole new life for me! Before AXIS, I had an experience similar to those of many new Canadians. I had dreams of a career that would not just employ me but challenge and inspire me, preferably in a discipline related to my education and skills. Although I was educated in the computer programming field, I was working on the front lines in the retail industry. Despite the fact that this work allowed me to meet many wonderful people, I wanted something more. AXIS opened the door to the opportunities I was dreaming about. They enabled me to showcase my skills, understand the job market and make contact with employers who were looking for someone just like me. I can never thank AXIS enough for providing the gateway from where I was to where I am today - employed in a very challenging career that I truly love! If you are in a situation similar to mine, I really encourage you to visit AXIS and meet the center's amazing team. This visit may change your life the way it has changed mine! ”
