What Employers & Clients Say About NEW Employment Services
“I was very happy with the staff (Esra and Natalie) at New Employment Services. They are knowledgeable and were always available to answer any questions and provide feedback quickly. I would highly recommend them for future placement considerations. They were professional, and very accommodating. The paperwork was well done. The only comment is the payment process was a little confusing however Esra was amazing and always was able to sort thing out for me. Thank you and I look forward to working with you in the future again.”

“Working with a Job Developer at NEW Employment Services allowed me the breathing room to properly train several new employees, without the challenge of finding extra time or funding to do so. In my case, this support has resulted in very well-trained staff, and has helped foster a very positive and educational work environment that encourages employees to continue growing their skills.”

"I would like to take a moment to thank Natalie Schaffer, my contact at New Employment Services for help above and beyond my expectations.
At the beginning of Sept. I found myself in a difficult situation. One of my long time employees (my son) returned to school. Then my only other employee in that dept. had a tour with his band booked last minute for 6 weeks from Oct to Nov. I had not had to hire for the last 4 years and with the changes in media I didn't know where to start. I had experience with the youth employment program and got in touch with my previous liaison and was directed to New Employment Services. From there I gave a detailed description of the job and my expectations for the position. They searched for suitable resumes and sent them to me. I was able to hire a suitable replacement. The youth employment program offsets a portion of the cost to employ while training. This was invaluable. I have to supervise very closely and cannot leave my new employee on their own for some time. Paying two people for one job (while training) was not a pleasant thought. If you are in need of an employee and would accept help in finding them, these are the people to talk to. Professional and successful would sum up my experience with them. I would not hesitate to contact them again if I had another reason to do so."

"Sweets From The Earth has worked with NEW on a number of occasions; in particular, we turn to NEW first when we have a position to fill. Not only have you consistently recommended stellar candidates, some of whom we have hired, you also have made us aware of government grant programs to help defray training costs, and you have made it really simple for us to sign up qualified candidates for these programs. Aside from our joint successes, we know that we can rely on you, and NEW staff in general, to be committed to make the whole process of hiring, and of applying for a grant, a pleasant experience.
Thank you once again for all of your assistance in the past, and we look forward to working with you again in the future."

“New Employment Services is a great company they helped me to get my dream job. I never came across people who are so helpful. They really understood my strengths and weaknesses thorugh their screening process and even took time to turn my weakness into my strength. I would suggest to everyone who is looking for a career change or recent graduate to try their services.”

"It's a pleasure for me to talk about NEW Employment Services. As a new comer to Canada, I called information to find out how and where to get a job. I spoke with a gentleman who gave me four employment services and their phone numbers. He asked me to read the information back to him. He said to me "I would like you to pay special attention to New Comer Women' Services on Danforth Ave and Please call that service first". I followed his instruction. As soon as the call ended, I called NEW Employment Serices. The benefits I got from New Employment Services has surpassed my expectation. I was placed in a job with an excellent manager, I was taught different skills on this job which is awesome. Thanks to NEW Employment Services I gained new skills that will last me a lifetime. I am a success because of New Employment Services. My job developer visited my job, communicated with my manager and myself making sure everything is on a professional level and both my manager and myself were happy.
If you are out there and thinking of an employment service, I am giving you the same advice the operator gave to me and I quote him again "pay special attention to Newcomer Women Services on Danforth Ave. Lindsay, you and your team are excellent. You are appreciated.”

"New Employment Services was wonderful to work with, and I highly recommend them. When I started my new job they helped assist me with my commute to work, and also supplied me with a fund to purchase proper work attire. They kept in touch to see how I was adapting and if there was anything I needed in my new job position. Thanks."

"My name is Cecilia. For a few months, I have been trying to look for jobs on my own and was not making any progress. One day I was referred to NEW by a friend. Applying for job on my own is hard because I could easily lost direction or feel discouraged. After I started to work with Anne, she had developed a plan to help me looking for the right jobs. I was able to send her my drafted resumes for her to edit or make suggestions. Whenever I feel clueless or indecisive, I can come to Anne for any suggestions and advice that are very helpful. After 1 month, my hard work under helpful guidance from Anne had paid off. I received 3 interview invites from potential employers. In the end, I accepted one of the job offer that will lead me to a desirable career path. I would like to encourage anyone that is trying so hard to search for jobs but have not received any interview invites to keep on trying hard. And go to NEW office to talk to one of the employment counselors. You will be surprised that there might be something you missed or doing wrongly in the past. It is always good to keep an open mind for suggestions. Please do not say NO to opportunities. Good luck!"

"I am writing this testimonial in regards to the services I received by Anne Hu over a period of several months. Coming into the service as a graduate with an economics degree and certainly feeling helpless, I can happily say that Anne made me feel comfortable and gave me the confidence that I would find meaningful employment soon. One of the greatest assets Anne thought me was how to properly channel my efforts into positive results. Whether this was doing more meaningful networking, or sticking to a goals in applying to jobs, Anne was always there providing great leadership. Furthermore, She showed she was caring by consistently providing me with useful resources that became quite valuable in my quest to find a job. In the end I was extremely pleased with the positive relationship I was able to build with Anne.

"As Thanksgiving is at our doorstep, I seize this golden opportunity to express my thanks to you, for being my employment counsellor. We have known each other for a short amount of time, however, you have managed to make a huge difference in my career. Thank you for building up my resume and encouraging me to attend the job fair hosted by VHA. I finally got hired on the spot and today, its been 3 months that I am working as a Permanent Personal Support Worker. I am very grateful to you as you have motivated me to a great extent while I was working long late night shifts for my part-time job as an interviewer at that time. Also, thank you for maintaining your professional follow-up after sending my resume to different places. You have been an extreme help in my career. I, sincerely, hope that you will continue this great job with the same burning passion and enthusiastic approach. Most importantly, I wish you, Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy your time with family and friends, eating turkey dinners with joy and laughter. "
