End of the Year Investing!

No, I do not plan to suggest an investment opportunity! I am talking about investing in yourself!

As the year draws to a close many of us gather with friends and family to celebrate Christmas it is also a great time to reflect on your professional journey in Canada. Some of you may have landed your job within your profession already, in which case we would certainly want to hear from you and maybe even share your story with other immigrants.

For those of you who are either in a transition job or are looking for a job, this is a great time to brush up your skills. Our newly redesigned website has new eBooks on 22 professions, essential soft skills and webinars on demand including some great webinars on LinkedIn for Newcomers, Immigrant Access Fund and Certificate and Bridging Programs.

There is also an abundance of information on the internet, but I would also suggest a site called Coursera www.coursera.org where you can brush up on a variety of topics and do it all for free online! The website provides you with highly qualified faculty who cover subjects from public speaking, writing, soft skills to digital marketing. Most of the courses have faculty from top notch US Universities and you get a certification of completion that will look really good on your resume.

The bottom line is that take some time out to invest in yourself and improve your chances of getting a job in your career of choice!

Merry Christmas to those who celebrate and Happy Holidays!
