Hire Immigrants Ottawa will provide an opportunity for newcomers to do practice interviews hosted by the Ottawa Catholic School Board.
Coaching events like this one bring employers and skilled immigrants together in a relaxed and informal setting outside the context of an actual job interview. During the event, employers provide advice to help skilled immigrants more effectively navigate the local job market. In turn, the coaching helps employers develop a more diverse network of talent and expand their understanding of the skills and qualifications of newcomers to Canada. The coaching is also a valuable way for employers to practice and develop their own cross-cultural competency skills.
