Rachel Lochhead, Human Resource Services at York Region
After graduating from university, I wanted to work in Human Resources but did not have the specific skills required and the program at Georgian was the missing link. The program offered the hands-on experience and amazing practical information you need to know on the job. Work experience is so important to employers and this program gave me the tools and the confidence to succeed in my internship and my current position.Rachel Lochhead, Human Resource Services at York Region
