"This program put my career back on track. I worked hard to finish this course on time and made sure to make the most of my time and the resources provided to me. By the time I finished, I had 3 job offers in hand. 2 permanent and one for one year contract. The resources provided by Humber College were amazing”

Sumeet Sethi, .NET Solution Developer, Analyst

“This program has been well thought out and designed to address the technical skills required for the current and highest job demand in terms of technology, which is the Microsoft .Net Technology. This has widened my technical skills to work on different technologies and thus increasing the number of jobs that I can now apply for. In addition to the technical skills, this course has also helped me to improve my soft skills. I got a better overview as to how Canadian companies function in general and how businesses work over here. The most important part was how to write good cover letter, resume to get an interview, and finally to tackle interview questions.”
