Metrics has always handled our assessment requests very promptly and delivered high-quality reports within our timelines. Their staff are professional and friendly! They’re always our preferred choice when it comes to vocational assessment services.
“Marg and Metrics both went out of their way to design implement and accommodate my needs in their provision of quality services. I felt both motivated and hopeful in my transition into an employable future.”
“I was in a rut and needed some help, and I think the program got me back on track, since I’ve been out of the workforce for a long time and my past jobs I got through other people. It’s still a bit of an adjustment, but it’s a lot easier job hunting after being in the routine, and being motivated.”
“Wow I cannot believe it has been six weeks already. I have been so caught up in my classes that it seems like a blur. But I would not change anything for the world, it is one of the most amazing things to have happened for me in the longest time. I am so excited to see what happens next and I really can’t thank you and [VRC] enough for helping me through this and giving me such a boost. It really means a lot and I will never forget the way you were so enthusiastic about helping me.”
- Mrs. H
Ms. H was referred to Metrics for a cognitive screen which revealed mild cognitive impairments of three essential cognitive functions. It was recommended she participate in a 10 week cognitive work hardening program and at the end of the program, it was the opinion of the Metrics facilitator that she was capable of sustaining full return to work. Given her previous job was no longer available, she was referred to one of Metrics Job Search Training Programs.
Here is the good news she shared with our team:
During my Job Search Training (JST) I expressed interest in working for the Government. I found a job posting which required many of the skills I have. My JST facilitator and I worked together on my resume / CV and cover letter ensuring that all the “keywords” from the posting were incorporated. I received a very positive response and have been asked to complete the next step of the application process which involves completing a 3-hour exam for this position. I am thrilled at this opportunity!
