Volunteer of the Month - September 2013

September 2013 

Ashley Rennie is ISC’s volunteer of the month

Ashley signed up as Employment Coach in 2011 when she moved to Calgary from Edmonton. As an Employment Coach, Ashley assists clients in creating or editing resumes and cover letters that reflect each client’s qualifications.  This job requires building and editing the clients’ resumes and cover letters as well as preparing clients for a job interview. As a human resources professional with a CHRP designation, Ashley expertise is a perfect fit for her role! She has helped produce high-quality resumes and cover letters that have assisted ISC’s beneficiaries in finding employment.

 Ashley says: “I volunteer with ISC because moving to a new country presents many challenges for individuals, including finding a job. Some people are lucky enough to arrive in Canada with employment but many people don't and as an HR professional who has worked in diverse environments I understand the challenges that our selection and recruiting processes can present to a newcomer. It is for these reasons among many others (the feeling of helping others, networking, skill and professional development, building a better community, etc.) that I choose to, and enjoy, volunteering with ISC. So far my experience volunteering with ISC has been great, as the staff and the clients have been a real pleasure to work with. I started as an employment coach and I am now volunteering with the mentoring program as well.” 

Ashley’s hobbies include hiking, camping, traveling, sewing, and cooking.  She is currently working to get her degree in Communications from Athabasca University.
