First Professional Job in Canada
December 23, 2021
Polina arrived in Canada from Russian in February 2020. She holds a Master’s degree in Computer Science and has eight years of experience as an IT professional. After receiving some local training in the IT field, she came to the Langley WorkBC Centre in December 2021 requesting job search support and connections to potential employers.
Polina was referred to our Employment Placement Specialist to support her in connecting with IT companies and accessing the Wage Subsidy Program. With this support, Polina obtained an interview with PosiTrace and was offered employment as a Software Programmer conditional on establishing a Wage Subsidy Agreement. The Employment Placement Specialist connected with the employer and presented the details of the Wage Subsidy program. An agreement was established and Polina started her first professional job in Canada on December 22, 2021.
