"After some career search and job hunt missteps, I decided to see a career coach at Camosun, a valuable and free service provided for current and past students of the college. Irene Wallace in Student and Alumni Employment Services was a great help. I see those meetings with Irene as a turning point in my search for a new and interesting career direction."
Nathan, alumnus working in the financial sector
Draw Winner Amanda Blanchard
Amanda Blanchard is our August Career Services ballot winner. She participated in a classroom workshop on how to develop a successful resume delivered by Irene Wallace. Amanda said, "I had the opportunity to hear [Irene] speak during a classroom workshop on resumes in August. From that workshop I was able to gain the ability and knowledge on how to write a professional resume which I am looking forward to using in the future to gain employment as a Health Care Assistant." Unfortunately Amanda had to medically withdraw from the practicum portions of the HCA program due to an accident that occurred in May of 2017. "It was a struggle daily to continue with my academic studies as I suffered from a severe concussion and my cognitive ability was compromised. With daily physical and cognitive exercises I am healing. My goal is to return to the HCA program in the spring of 2018 to complete my studies and receive my diploma from the program."
