"As a newcomer to Canada, I was totally unaware of the right approach to finding a new job. This program helped me tremendously in building my resume, cover letter, communication skills, my network in the country that I barely knew and most importantly my self-confidence.

I used all of the techniques and practices that I had learned to succeed in my job interview. I am forever proud to have worked with Sask Polytech." - Zhaleh Joolz Malek|
