Testimonials

Shortly before the end of the Speed-Jobing event, I had the chance to sit down with Julie Redrejo, the Human Resources Coordinator from the B.C. “Conseil Scolaire Francophone”. After she had gone through my CV, showcasing my experiences as a socio-cultural project manager, and after she had asked me a few questions, she immediately shared with me that interesting offers were coming up at the CSF and encouraged me to apply for them. A few weeks later, Julie contacted me again to share the offer of “Community Engagement and Partnership Advisor.

I would like to thank the SDE for its efforts in organizing meetings such as speed-jobbing and all the training related to job search, especially with Douglas College, which are of very good quality.

The speed-jobbing in October allowed me to meet my new employer, the company Digitary!
These meetings lead to real hires, and I thank you for that!
