Come join the first IWIS event of 2013, March 19 as experts unveil the secret of successful job hunting in Canada. They’ll practise the techniques that will lead you to a job.

With humour and practise, you will learn appropriate ways to make contacts who will help you get Canadian experience. Not only is a job possible, the hunt can be enjoyable.
Lorraine Graves has run her own Canadian business since 1986. In that time she has hired immigrants from a variety of countries. Lorraine has worked with a number of volunteer groups helping refugees and immigrants adapt to Canada. She has also worked as a broadcaster, journalist, and educational television producer. Currently, Lorraine is a writer, Canadian culture coach, and a volunteer ESL teacher. She has both coached immigrants on how to get a job and been an employer of immigrants. Just moving to Vancouver left her feeling like a fish out of water or like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz so she has compassion and great admiration for those move here from a different country.
