Bhakti P. -Ontario – Junior IT Analyst – February 2022 Graduate
The pandemic made it difficult for Bhakti to find a job, network, or socialize. She had just moved to Toronto, and was trying to start up her fitness career in Canada, but with lockdowns and restrictions, she was unable to offer personal training sessions. Bhakti did not know where to turn to, and it felt like getting a job was going to be “nearly impossible.”
Thankfully, that’s when the Elspeth Heyworth Centre for Women told her about NPower Canada. Bhakti had always been interested in computers and was eager to get into a more stable industry. She enrolled in our Junior IT Analyst program in Ontario immediately.
Bhakti learnt in-demand tech skills and finally felt like she had people who could help and support her in her career journey. She really enjoyed the personal development sessions. “My instructor instilled lots of confidence in myself, and filled me with courage, helping draw out the best of me,” Bhakti shared.
Bhakti was impressed with the network NPower Canada offered.
“NPower Canada is partnered with some of the industry’s best employers, making your transition into tech easier. They not only provide you with relevant job opportunities, they help you from building your resume to preparing you for the interview. They leave no stone unturned to help you get your desired job,” Bhakti said.
Before graduating from our program in February, Bhakti had already secured a role with HGS, a software company based in Toronto. She is happy to have landed her first tech job and is eager to continue developing personally and professionally.
