Sneha Satheedran and her husband were CIIP participants in India and landed in Vancouver in August 2016.
We knew no one in Vancouver, but the resources shared by CIIP rescued us! It was only because of the CIIP session that we were mentally prepared for challenges in Canada and were well equipped with information. The resources they shared totally became our friend after landing in Canada. Most importantly, by attending this session while still being in India, we felt welcomed to Canada.
CIIP’s help before we landed ensured that we had a good Canadian resume ready. I also attended the “Fast Track to Work” training program with WorkBC. It was very eye-opening and taught me that networking is the most important aspect of a job search in Canada.
My husband is brilliant at networking. Simply because of that – and his business acumen – he landed a job within one month of arrival with one of Canada’s most reputed banks, TD Canada Trust. I attended hiring fairs and networking events. Within three months of arrival, I had four job offers! I now work as a Consultant at Shaw Communications.
This is a beautiful, cold, country but the people are warm and welcoming. The government has a lot of services to help you in all aspects of life. Use all the resources that the CIIP session provides you!
