How did the Immigrant Centre help you to find a job in Canada?
My Employment Facilitator, Manami Alexander is a wonderful mentor! From the onboarding process from the first day we connected online, she was very supportive and walked with me every step on the way. She taught me to how to write a Canadian job CV, apply for jobs, prepare for interview, built my self-confidence, and shared job openings with me.

What types of job search techniques did you use to find your job?
Talked to friends, job search websites, applied online, and job fair.

What differences have you noticed between working in Canada and working in your home country?
The difference I have noticed here is that, there is updated information and policies to work with here and their is a conducive environment for people with disability.

What advice would you give to immigrants and newcomers looking for work?
I will advice immigrants and newcomers looking for work in Manitoba to reach out to Immigrant Centre Manitoba. I will also encourage them to follow the advice of their Employment Facilitator.
