The knowledge and experience I gained from this partnership helped to polish my business communication skills and my understanding of the corporate environment in Canada. My mentor assisted with my resume and cover letter enhancement. She provided additional support and motivation which were critical in that period of my life. Julia Plamadeala, Workplace Connections Success Story
