Directly after graduation, I began my new career as an Employment Counsellor at Northern Lights. I counsel and coach clients around their job search goals, whether they are pursuing employment, employment training, or educational upgrading or retraining.
Prior to attending Georgian, I was employed in various administrative support positions. Over the years, and with a couple of moves, it became increasingly difficult to find positions with any advancement potential, and so it was time for a career change. The Social Service Worker program at Georgian provided the training and background to set me on my new path.
Georgian College has a very welcoming atmosphere – it’s easy to get to know the “people of Georgian College” (the Dean, Assistant Dean, Coordinator, professors, support staff, as well as cafeteria staff, custodians, etc.). Everyone is there with a friendly smile, willing to help or encourage you.
The number one thing I learned at Georgian College is this: not only is learning fun, but it gives you great confidence to pursue your goals. The support is excellent, and so is the potential for growth!
