Simon – Junior IT Analyst – Alberta – April 2020 Graduate
For Simon B., a dream job is something he could be proud of, something that also provides him enough time and room for personal projects. Landing one, however, wasn’t easy. Being new to Calgary, Simon had no network to guide him and no one to refer him. Day in and day out, he surfed multiple career websites and reached out to different recruiting agents, hoping for a call back. It was an e-newsletter from the Center for Newcomers, Calgary, that finally introduced him to NPower Canada and our Junior IT Analyst Program. Simon did not hesitate. He chose IT.
We provided him a portal to enter the world of IT by helping him build a strong resume and preparing him for interviews. What struck him most about the program was his now easy access to IT knowledge, the patience, dedication and professionalism he saw coming from our team, and the 360 degrees of support provided. In short, he wasn’t alone anymore. He was NPowered! Simon landed his first IT job soon after completing the NPower Canada program.
To those considering NPower Canada programs, he has this to say:
“NPower Canada is doing all they can on their half, the other half is ours. Be accountable for what’s on our side of the playing field.”
