WHY AM I THE BEST PERSON TO JUMPSTART YOUR CAREER?
Hi, I'm Michelle, Career Coach and Campus Recruiter
I am a life-long learner and a forever student. I understand the worry of wondering if you have made the right choice, the pressure of wrapping up final exams and projects while maintaining a semi decent social life.
Now I haven’t always been a fan of school. In high school I cruised by and was anxious to start
A few years went by and I was feeling stuck in my career and felt that I had no control over it. I decided it was time to go back to school.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I cannot tell you how pleasantly surprised I was with my new chapter. When you are in school and learning about things that interests you, you WANT to go to school and aim for good grades.
Feeling a bit behind in my career, I knew I had to start building my resume and start networking right away. I volunteered, found internships and went to every job fair. My college experience was full of great experience, long nights and some tears, which helped me decide on what I really wanted from a career.
Ok, so what happened after school?
I have been blessed to have the opportunity to work at two of the largest organizations within my region.
Directly out of school, I started working in the Careers Department within a local college. I supported hundreds of students through their co-op and graduate job search and even facilitated a course to prepare first year students for employment including job search strategies, resumes, interviewing and more.
A few years later, I moved onto a new position as Campus Recruiter for a large automotive manufacturer. I worked with hiring managers to hire students for internships and co-ops. We traveled all around Ontario to interview students for various programs including, Engineering, Nursing, Business Studies including Finance, Kinesiology and more. I viewed thousands of applications, so I know what stands out and what hiring managers are looking for.
My commute for my new job was pretty long - 15 hours each week. I spent those hours listening to podcasts and courses on career development, Gen Z careers, recruitment trends, labour market information and more, fueling my passion!
Now I am following my passion. I want to help students reach their full potential and guide them through their career journey.
