NEW! Learn@Lunch: Gaining Career Momentum as a New Arrival to Canada

May 30, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

  • Are you a new arrival to Canada?
  • Are you applying for work in your field, getting an interview and then being told that you were not selected because you do not have Canadian experience?
  • Have you felt that you had little choice but to accept a general job, even though you knew it would delay your ability to get back to the profession you have experience in?

If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, then please join us on Tuesday, May 30th from 12-1:30 PM. Like you, so many new arrivals to Canada are not only seasoned professionals and highly educated, but often are underemployed.

During this free information session, our panel of experts will be discussing the employment issues facing new arrivals and will offer solid advice to help you turn things around and get your professional career back on track.

This workshop will be moderated by Nogol Madani, Founder and CEO at Glee Factor

Meet your panelists:

Osama AlHusaini , Senior Human Resources Leader | Senior Project Manager BNP Paribas CIB

Nick (Naeem) Noorani, CEO Immigrant Networks| Founder Canadian Immigrant Magazine

Samantha Bateman, Integeria Consulting | Client Relationship Director | Talent Acquisition Disruptor, Connector & Community Builder

Annalise Iten, YES Employment + Entrepreneurship | Senior Employment Cousellor | Certified Professional + Personal Coach (PPCC)

Pre-registration is required. Available as a free online, live-streaming webinar.
