I am thankful and highly impressed for the effective, timely and professional services that Professions North provides.”

Mohamad F. Khayzuran, Project Manager Nor-Arc Earlton, ON

I was a newcomer to Canada with high hopes and dreams of landing a job related to my profession. I thought I was prepared enough for my job search not until a professional network introduced me to PNN. The staff were so professional and knowledgeable in their field. They assisted me when it comes to my job search, resume writing, job application and interview preparation.

Their approach and method is very efficient and really helped me to become a confident and competent job seeker. Not only have I found a job related to my profession, but I get to resume my career with the company I have always been proud working for even after relocating here in Canada. PNN helped me in this journey from finding the perfect opportunity and in achieving my dreams.
