How did the Immigrant Centre help you to find a job in Canada?
Among various other things, my employment facilitator at IC helped me fix my resume, informed me about the work culture and practices in Canada, taught me interview techniques and explained how to look for jobs in Winnipeg. But most of all, she gave me a lot of encouragement and support that really helped boost my confidence.

What types of job search techniques did you use to find your job?
I visited employers near my residence.

What differences have you noticed between working in Canada and working in your home country?
It's hard to pinpoint the differences, as my jobs back home were very different from what I'm currently doing here.

What advice would you give to immigrants and newcomers looking for work?
Best advice I can give is to fully research and take complete advantage of ALL the resources available to newcomers, such as those provided by Immigrant Centre.
