Coming to Canada, I’ve come across a lot of obstacle, mentally and physically. With that, my knowledge about this world and how it works did increase from the few lessons I was taught, good and bad. Transitioning from a third-world country to a country like this was, by far, the most fascinating experience in my life. Through this transition, I also experienced one of my biggest fears, scariest and saddest moments in my life yet.
I worked on marketing through social media for the organization and helped spread the word about what VYDC does. This experience was completely different from my internship last summer because I got to do hands on work with advertising instead of just learning about what marketing is. It was amazing to see the impact social media can do for an organization, and how our society revolves around the
Approximately five years ago I decided to come to Canada to further my education, this decision will probably be one of the best decisions I have ever made, my knowledge, self-confidence, thinking, behavior and overall look on life improved exponentially. I have even been able to discover more interesting things about myself and want
I got to experience hands on waitressing Paper from and computer. Having to make my own drinks sometimes. Also counting money. this experience has led me to a bob I got later on that year, Cage Cashier at the Grand Hinckley Casino. I had to count money my hole shift. I worked with some pretty awesome people and I got to meet a lot of great guest. If I had to pick this would be my favorite job I ever had. I really looked up to the people I worked with they always seemed to find a way to make me happy even when I was sad. They have always been there to help me when I needed it.
When immigrants first step into Canadas borders the most obvious challenge they have to face is the barrier that is set immediately due to language differences. Canadas official languages include both English and French these languages arguably are the most difficult languages to learn. In many ways, for immigrants the first step to both economic and societal immigration is learning English. Without learning English and proper English literacy skills there is little chance of getting a well-paying job, making connections with people in Canadian society and overall, without English immigrants are unable to communicate with others around them in society during everyday life. Language and Literacy training also relate to immigrant's employability. In a study showing
Last March, I embarked on a trip with my French class to Paris and the upper Normandy region. I was often the one in my group that others would turn to if they did not know how to communicate with French speakers correctly. Before this trip, I had been practicing my French for months in order to maximize the quality of my experience in a new and foreign land, and break down the language barrier to become more connected with the people around me. In my adventures with my family, I have also visited Mexico and Canada. In Mexico, I was able to utilize my spanish speaking skills and guide my family through the streets of a foreign area. Visiting Canada was another venture to an unfamiliar land; and even though there was no language barrier (aside from a couple of “a’s” thrown into conversation), it was an extremely rich cultural experience.
In the past few decades the global economy has undergone a fundamental shift. The characteristics of the economy have shifted to favor an information-based economy in which technology plays the largest role in the production process. This has come at the expense of the characteristics of the Fordist system, such as a large class of manufacturing workers in the American midwest. The rise of the creative class is part of the same transition that is responsible for the demise of the American worker. The transition from Fordism to knowledge-based capitalism has seen the majority of manufacturing jobs replaced by automation. The displacement stemming from automation as well as resentment for the lucrative creative class sparked the rise of populist candidates in 2016.
Tired of only having your regular course classes like math? Every middle school and high school, world-wide, should have electives as an option. Not many middle schools have this option like high school students do. Electives can benefit all kids and teens! Not only will it benefit the students, but the parents as well, because their child may have founds a passion thanks to their school elective!
An experience that has provided me with the most growth as a person is my involvement in mentoring an at-risk teen in Athens, GA for 3 years. Mentoring has improved my leadership and interpersonal skills. It kept me accountable to living at a higher standard in order to be a positive role model for another person. I also developed a greater appreciation for diversity from spending time with a person from a culture much different from my own. Overall this experience instilled a passion for all people regardless of race, ethnicity, social status, gender, or age. A genuine interest for others motivates me to learn more about human behaviors and pursue a career in counseling. Another experience I have that has provided me with opportunities to grow and improve is my experience as an intern at Jay’s Hope Foundation. The Jay’s Hope Foundation offers many different avenues of support to children diagnosed with cancer and their families. I was able to be in direct contact with families facing life-threatening situations. It was a very emotionally heavy internship, but I learned so much and was encouraged by the resiliency of the children and families. At Jay’s Hope, I learned the importance of teamwork, I developed flexibility, I became more organized, and I gained more confidence in my ability to
I participated in work experience at Haldane Fisher Ltd, a local building supplies firm that not only operates in my home town but also has key branches throughout Northern Ireland, and they also deliver goods throughout Ireland. I spent a very interesting week there where I gained valuable experience. I was fortunate to be present while the company
Some students need to pay for college through loans but they do not mind because it is an investment. If a student is undecided about their major, then I feel a university ought to have a general ed plan set up, so they can range over and find what they are interested in through the numerous classes available. General ed classes should not be required but should be available for students who know their career path and wish acquire a knowledge in different areas. When a recent college graduate is applying for a job, I highly doubt that employers ask about their classes pertaining outside of their major, therefore, college students should be required to only take courses within their major because it allows for students to save money, the stress, and will ultimately allow the student to focus on taking classes that are only relevant to their future profession.
In doing so, we can better prepare them for the Canadian job market. Thus since March 2010, Citizenship and Immigration Canada encourage federal skilled workers to submit a third-party language test result (p.101). With this idea to give more emphasis on language factors, I believe it is for the reason to motivate applicants to improve their language ability before they arrive in Canada in order to facilitate an easier transition into western society. As a matter of fact, a lot of landed immigrants have to learn either French or English. Language still is a key challenge that many immigrants face today, even in cases where they have submitted an official language test passing result. In this context, it means that they are not yet ready to meet the demands of the job market with their current language level. Therefore, I fear that only emphasizing the importance of the language efficiency before their arrival is not the best
How many people can say that an experience with a job positively changed their character? When I first applied for a position at a Chipotle, I had no idea a fast food restaurant could affect my life in a personal way. Through this work experience, I have learned how to empower a team through elevation, how to have high standards in order to be a top performer, how to lead a team, and how to be a part of a family for the benefit of a community.
Every day I learned something new. It is a fun environment to work due to having new customers. The important part of the job is the urgency of getting things done which teached me to improve more and more. The most enjoyable part is to be able to help people and have a part in making their dreams come true.
Currently so far being employed at the cafeteria. I work through the morning shift every weekday till friday an sometimes weekends. I mostly start my mornings by waking up at 5:30 everyday to get to work by 6:15 to 7:50. Then I have about 10mins to get to my classes, but in the end having to wake up early and sometimes going to school half asleep. Its been well worth it. I'm really glad to have my job and make some money while doing school at the same time. An just being able to work along side my fellow peers and co-workers has been a real experience. That has allowed me to understand in a way how serving food in the food industry is like and as well as having good leadership skills. All in all working at the Crampton Cafeteria has been a
