“Even though I’ve been working on my field for more than 10 years, I was un able to get a job according to my background and my expectations. After the program finished I secured a position as Tech Lead – Call Centre Architect in one of the 3 big telecom Canadian companies. If it weren’t for the bridging program it would have taken longer for me to get the skills I needed to reach my full potential and step up my career”
Domingo Los Santos, Tech Lead - Call Centre Architect
"The good news is that I secured employment even before I graduated! I was interviewed during Humber’s bridging job fair, received a job offer, and started my employment. It happened because Humber’s job developers held an employment event for the bridging students."
