“Hi, I take this opportunity to inform you that I got job in my field within 13 days of my landing in Canada. I want to send my deepest gratitude for providing me valuable guidance and support when I was back in my home country. I started preparation for this since December, 2015. I am very thankful to Andreea who guided me and offered me many important courses which were very useful before my arrival in Canada.
“After landing, I went to many settlement agencies. They were astonished by seeing my CV, job search methods and asked me about how I could do this on my own. They saw me well prepared. I simply told them that I am thankful to SOPA.”Bharat
My first course was Job Search Strategies which I have started in December 2015. This was the first time in my life I was taking online course. My facilitator, Nery was very supportive throughout the course. I came to know about Canada job market and job search techniques which were very different from my home country. I used almost all of these techniques to find a job here. This success would not have been possible without this course and my facilitator. I also came to know about sandwich technique of giving feedback from Nery. She explained me about this technique and also told that you will learn this in your next course which was Professional Communication.
I was so curious to start Professional Communication course as I really wanted to improve my writing and communication skills. I started the course in February 2016 which was facilitated by Caroline. Apart from giving regular feedback of my assignments, she provided me many other links to important websites to improve my skills further. In addition, she gave me valuable inputs to improve my linkedin profile, CV and cover letter. Working with others was the last course I completed. Thanks to Caroline again.
I am using paraphrasing technique to understand different assignments from my colleagues and boss to make sure I understood correctly. This technique also helping me a lot to improve my performance at workplace.
After landing, I went to many settlement agencies. They were astonished by seeing my CV, job search methods and asked me about how I could do this on my own. They saw me well prepared. I simply told them that I am thankful to SOPA.
I can not express my level of happiness in words. I can not believe that my 5 month advanced preparation paid me this way.
Thank you very much. I owe to all of you. If I can be of any help, I would be happy to volunteer or assist myself for SOPA in future.”
