At the beginning I was shy and quiet because it was a different kind of environment than I was used to. Having people of different cultures and backgrounds in one room was all new to me. I got to experience a different style of learning where by instructors employ different methods of teaching to make sure we understand the material and, a few weeks after the program ended I got a job with CIBC as a QA analyst. I believe this is just my starting point and I have a long journey ahead of me, I want to say a big thank you to NPower for teaching me patience, dedication and hard work.

NPower Canada gives their participants practice, critical thinking and problem-solving tools that most entry level positions require. We know that people who have been through [the program] are interested in tech and have a solid knowledge base. Their onboarding time was 10 per cent less than normal.

Working with NPower Canada has been a great overall experience that I am proud to be a part of. The quality of the candidates have brought great energy to the organization and our interns have done a fantastic job. It is great to see them taking on new challenges and watching their growth.

We were searching for a new hire for several weeks but shortly after we started interviewing NPower Canada participants we knew we found the perfect candidates. As new employees they get up to speed quickly. We knew we had the perfect employee within 50 per cent of the usual 3 month probation.

Do it. Plain and simple. The program changed my life for the better. I didn't love it everyday, but I woke up and got there and took what I could out of every moment I spent in class or with colleagues.

Coming out of NPower Canada (Class 2 Alumni) I have had unrelenting momentum, and am still doing speeches, private panel discussions, small conferences and I strive to continue as a motivational speaker. I've always had the potential, but NPower Canada helped me find the key to unlocking it.
Mitch G., Core IT Graduate, QA Analyst, Uken Games
I honestly don't know where I would be in my job hunting process if I didn't take this opportunity with NPower Canada. Being privileged with this wealth of knowledge is truly a blessing. I learned how to conduct myself before, during and after an interview, which has given me the confidence to succeed in finding meaningful employment.

They already have the technical ability, they already have the confidence and they already have the motivation and I think that was evident right from the start.
Maggie McLean, QA Team Lead, Uken Games
Twelve months ago, I was struggling financially, working in a customer service job and unable to afford postsecondary studies. Thanks to NPower Canada, I learned a whole new skill set in IT and am now employed full time at RBC as a Technical Analyst!
