Yurib Ibrihim came to Canada in 1999 as a refugee. With the help of language and upgrading courses, Yurub worked with Bow Valley College on a job search action plan.

The helpful staff were there to answer Yurib's questions and work with her to prepare tools for employment, develop a resume and cover letter, learn how to find a job, and market herself effectively by grabbing the attention of the employers.

It worked! Yurib now works as a cashier at Safeway - her first paid job in Canada! Yurub's next step is to complete a Health Care Aid program, find related work, and then complete her LPN training.
