Students share their experience about our programs for newcomer professionals!
A valuable lesson I’ve learned from the Workplace Preparation Program was to know and use the NOC list. I knew of its existence before, however I did not know in which way it could be helpful for my career. I believe the more we know, we will be better prepared to understand the Canadian job market, we will be capable of negotiating a salary, and research for similar jobs that we might have overlooked for not being aware.
The motivation that we are given in class about how our contribution to the local job market is important as internationally trained professionals, it gives us the confidence we need to look for the jobs that are going to be appropriate for us.

What I really liked about the OSLT course is how it made me realize the cultural differences that are linked to everyday life and the workplace. I have a much better understanding of Canadian culture and how to deal with Canadian people in an effective way.

A good course can help the new comer to be happy, fearless and successful in a new environment. OSLT is really a good course for a new comer who wants to find a job in Canada. The on-line videos and practice in class allow for deeper knowledge. I really liked the flexibility of learning on-line. By doing presentations and in-class dialogues, the course helped to improve my skills and improve y confidence.
