Internationally trained professionals receive their education and certifications in another country often face a common challenge: How to re-establish a career in a related field?
These questions will be addressed in this event:
- What are the steps and skills needed to achieve career success in Canada?
- What are other careers I can explore while leveraging my foreign credentials?
- Is getting relicensed and recertified the only option? What are the alternatives?
We would like to invite graduate students or immigrant professionals who:
– Have recently immigrated to Canada
– Are seeking jobs in a new field
At the networking session you will:
– Meet fellows who are currently working in different fields
– Broaden your Canadian professional network
– Find out success stories and experiences shared by others
