  • Thank you Hello everyone, first of all, I would like to thank Zsuzsa and JVS for giving me the opportunity to be here today. JVS and the CWC course helped me a lot to succeed in my job search; and the least I can make is to come here and share my experience with you guys.

Please don’t hesitate to ask me any questions during the presentation. If you prefer, you can save your question for the Q&A section in the end.

  • Arrival => For those who don’t know me: My name is Adrian, I am Brazilian and I arrived in Canada on November 2008. The reason I came to Canada is that when I visited the country about 10 years ago I fell in love with the cosmopolitan aspect of Toronto and I felt that it would be a perfect place for me live, build my family and develop my career. Goals => Move from Banking to Consulting Prior coming to Canada, I had worked for a Brazilian bank (in Brazil and in Japan) for over 6 years. However, as I was starting a new life, I also started to think about engaging in a new career. For long I wanted to try a career in consulting, so I felt that since I already had left my job, now it was the time for me to make this shift. Concerns => not get/take long to get desirable job Recession (hiring freeze/increasing competition) Lack of Canadian experience (culturally/professionally) No connections! Preparation => Career Coaching: resume, interview, career search CWC: practice and learn peculiarities of the Canadian banking industry Mentorship Partnership Program: learned more about the consulting business in Canada (interview, definitions, networking etc) Job Counselor: Bojana Balteva assisted me with resumes, cover letters, interviews, business cards, review of strategies and build confidence. Job Developer: Andres Berrio helped me to get my internship at a Canadian Bank, improve my networking and get some interviews.
