Is it time to focus on building a successful career in Canada for you?

If you answered yes, and you are a newcomer woman, you should submit a request for Career Pathways for Women!

Read the story of a recent participant of Career Pathways and how she landed a new opportunity working in her field soon after completing the two-week training.

Marina Morgan an internationally trained dentist, landed in Canada on May 11, 2020. To support her search for employment in the dental field, she was referred to the Career Pathways for Women program from a Settlement Counsellor at TCET’s Newcomer Information Centre.

Marina needed to gain an understanding of the Canadian workplace culture, how to market herself to employers, and she wanted to learn about the interview process. Her job search needs were met by the materials covered in the workshops including two individual coaching sessions with a Workplace Development Coach.

The coaching sessions involved exploring the job bank and occupational profile for her area of interest, as well as a mock interview session so that she would be successful in future job interviews.

Marina secured full-time employment as a Dental Receptionist starting on June 29, 2020. The job search training and coaching sessions worked.  Marina was able to confidently negotiate her pay rate from exposure to the job bank occupational information, and she was well prepared for the interview due to the high level of support from her Coach. Although Marina is no longer a practicing dentist, she is very happy to be working in an alternative career within her field, helping her attain her career goals in Canada.
