ePortfolios for Professional Immigrants at Manitoba Start
March 31, 2013
Learning Agents worked with Manitoba Start, a leading immigrant employment agency, to develop a collection of employability ePortfolios for professional immigrants. The ePortfolios have proved popular with the agency's Workplace Liaison Coordinators, as they contact employers to place their clients.
Some of the feedback:
"It assisted me to present these high level professionals to show their experience and their knowledge and log course their strong language ability which in turn was an excellent assistance to getting these folks an interview"
Excellent program, thank you!! I hope we can continue to do this regularly as this worked out so well!”
- Melissa Kovacs Toews, Workplace Liaison Coordinator at Manitoba Start.
“I love it! Just love the colour scheme – great example. I’ve added it to my favorites. I used this as a sample in the QR workshop today and the clients really found it very helpful! Thank you!”
- Sylvia Thiessen, Career Coach/Facilitator at Manitoba Start
These targeted ePortfolios will become a template for other clients of Manitoba Start. The project was funded by the Office of the Manitoba Fairness Commissioner.
