Our Clients Say it Best ...
YES Job Search Clients
“The workshops gave me the tools to improve my CV and optimize my LinkedIn profile and in the course of a few weeks, I found a part-time job in a newly-founded company based in Montreal, where I worked on a 5-month contract as a Marketing Coordinator.
At YES, I not only found the key tools and training that helped me develop my career and find my dream job, but I also found great and supportive people who encouraged me through the challenges of navigating my job search in a new city. I’m very grateful for all the guidance YES provided me.”
- Laura Sanchez, YES Job Search Client 2016
YES Entrepreneurship Clients
“YES Montreal is a necessity for entrepreneurs. It offers good, sound advice from professionals in the field with experience. I wanted to start my own business but have been a teacher for 16 years so I need solid advice. I went to a few workshops at other organizations, in person and online, but they were pep talks. YES gets to the nuts and bolts of entrepreneurship immediately, so you can evaluate your idea and go ahead with a concrete plan. The free and confidential business coaching sessions are invaluable. Last but not least, in Montreal, serving the English-speaking community is essential as there are virtually no services available in English. In addition, the English-speaking community has to be very entrepreneurial in order to survive in Quebec.”
- Andrea Saunderson, Entrepreneurship Client (2016)
YES Artist Clients
“After university I was unemployed and the search for a position as an art educator was challenging at best. Right before Christmas I found myself with no money which is when I stumbled upon a handful of illustrations that I had done and it occurred to me that I could create something that I could give to my friends and family that year without spending any money, which, is how that first colouring book was born - out of sheer necessity.
I couldn't have gotten this far with the resources available at YES, most especially the advice and support that I get from my business coach. I always leave my meetings feeling empowered and on the right track.”
- Kristy Boisvert, YES Artist Client, November 2016
