Coming to a new country and starting a new career can be a wonderful and exciting adventure. For some of us, it is a tremendous challenge full of obstacles. It is normal to feel alone and frustrated during your first job search. If you are a job seeker who is starting a new career in Canada this is the event for you!
Our guest speaker is Josephine Pon, Alberta’s Minister of Seniors and Housing. She came to Canada as a young student and slowly built a career for herself first in the financial sector, where she became a leader in her field. Later she entered politics. Her journey as a professional, leader and immigrant highlights how people can become successful in Canada despite their beginnings. Learn about the challenges that she had to overcome to become the first Asian female to be appointed as a minister in the Alberta government.
