Graduate Success Story – Hillman C.

Hillman – Service Analyst – Ontario – November 2017 Graduate

5 years ago, in 2017, Hilllman made the decision to pursue his career dreams of working in IT and Project Management. He had a certificate in Project Management from a local college, but was still missing some skills and education needed to break into the industry. That’s when he stumbled upon a Toronto Star article about NPower Canada.

During the program, Hillman said he “gained the confidence, skills and support to become a better version of myself.” Both his peers and staff cheered him along as he worked hard, passing certification exams and completing assignments. He was awarded with our Emerging Leader Award – and boy were we right!

Hillman graduated from our program in November 2017, and landed an internship with TELUS. He stayed with TELUS for a number of years, steadily growing his career. Recently, he started a new role with Bell, as a Senior Project Manager. “I am in my dream job,” Hillman said.

Hillman still holds NPower Canada dear to his heart as the organization that took a chance on him when he needed it. To fellow jobseekers, he had this to say:

“My best advice is that it doesn’t not matter where you are or where you start. Everyone has their own timeline, and as long as you prepare for the opportunities ahead, then you will succeed.”
