Ready to start?


I recently had a cover letter and resume done with Betty and talked about branding with Kristina. I am graduating university this year so I need a resume to start applying for teaching positions.

My experience with Betty and Kristina was fantastic. I liked that your office uses zoom, and I learned a lot about professionalism. They were also respectful and considerate of my Indigenous background and culture. I felt more confident after my appointments with them.

Since then I have recommended Osborne Resource Centre to other student teachers, teachers at my practicum school, friends and family.


Yes, I am excited and I wish to thank you and Osborne Village Resource Centre so much as you have changed my life.

Having been referred to OVRC, I wanted to let others know that I have been more than happy with their services and staff, and would highly recommend them to anyone needing guidance in searching for a new career.

Being in the position of applying for a new career after being laid off after 32-years, getting started on the search was a daunting task.

The staff of Judy, Laurie, Kristina, Lisa, Betty, and John have all been individually, as well as collectively, great to work with and learn from.

Getting a starting point was my first challenge and through the workshops offered by OVRC. I was able to learn and apply the information at a comfortable pace. The skills-based resume and targeted cover letter are a great introduction to companies who may only be spending a few minutes reviewing them to get them interested in you.

The help in searching out companies, trade associations, and particular industries has also been very beneficial.
