Meet Santi, Information Resource Specialist
Santiago is an international student from Colombia and a second-year student from Mount Saint Vincent University where he is enrolled in the Business Administration program. He joined the Job Junction Nova Scotia Works team as one of our co-op students for the summer term and was looking forward to learning about the work culture in Nova Scotia.
“Working at Job Junction has been an unforgettable experience,” he said.
“When I first started, I thought it was going to be a job where you would just do some paperwork collected from clients, answer a couple calls, and send some emails. But it turned out to be way more meaningful than that; this is a place where you can see that each one of our team members is willing to help you in the best way as possible.”
“From a student’s perspective, joining the team had a really positive impact on my career development. I was able to improve my technical skills, but most importantly I improved my people skills.
We understand that the job search process can be difficult and frustrating, so we are here not only to help you to achieve your goals, but also to listen to you.
What I like the most about Job Junction is that it does not matter where you are from, what your background is or the challenges that you are facing right now, we will always welcome you with our arms open.”
“At Job Junction, you do feel like you are part of the team from your first day of work. Everyone will always be there taking care of you, helping you and guiding you.
Every member is passionate about what they do, because getting smiles and greetings from clients is a really rewarding job!”
