During this first component of the program, internationally educated professionals who are new to Canada and have an ICT background experience a jam-packed schedule from employment readiness workshops on resume writing, interview skills, job search strategies to networking, LinkedIn, and personal branding. With a two day course about Canadian Workplace Cultural Intelligence newcomers to Canada are better able to ease into the Canadian workplace with all the soft skills required to position them favourably to employers looking to fill their ICT needs. SCRUM Fundamentals certification, recruiter visits (on and off site) help inform the IEPs with all they need to know about themselves and the industry.
At the completion of the in-class component, program participants will be uniquely matched with a professional coach who will work with them for 3 months to continue support in achieving the goals they have set out for themselves whether it be to secure employment, retain a position, or anything else they have in sight for themselves. These coaches are trained professionals who are passionate about working with newcomers to Canada and supporting the IEPs through to the fulfillment they came to Canada to find.
Over 85% of IWES graduates secure employment in their field.
