YES Employment + Entrepreneurship November Client of the Month

 

 
Daniel Amato graduated from the John Molson School of Business in 2017 with a Bachelor of Commerce degree majoring in Supply Chain Operations Management. While his education opened up many career opportunities for him, finding a fulfilling job that made him feel satisfied has always been a challenge.

Soon after graduating, Daniel began his search for work by putting himself out there and being resilient. His hard work soon paid off. After a few months, he was able to achieve his goal of finding his dream job in Supply Chain/Logistics, however, due to COVID-19, Daniel was laid off. He was left unemployed and was exceedingly worried that he was facing an uphill battle. Not only was he trying to find another job, but he was trying to find a job during a pandemic, one that has impacted industries across the board and created what seemed like a global hiring freeze.

He immediately began working on updating his resume and started interview prepping, but felt that something was missing. “I was in need of advice from a career coach,” Daniel says.

After hearing about YES at a University Career fair a few years ago, he reached out to YES. “I was fortunate to be coached by my YES Career Advisor who gave me invaluable advice, tips, and coaching.” Each session helped him better prepare for upcoming interviews and gave him the confidence he needed to face any obstacle. Within a few visits, Daniel landed another position, as a Transportation Operations Coordinator at Airbus.

"My career advisor’s personalized coaching helped contribute to my success in securing another position in little time,” he says. “I was amazed to have received many interviews and a few job propositions within a few weeks of being laid off due to the pandemic. To this date, I consider this my greatest and proudest achievement.”

“Reaching out to YES was a great decision and should be a no-brainer for anyone looking to obtain career or entrepreneurial assistance or mentorship."
