This 14-week program is free of charge and introduces women into the world of trades and technology. During the 14 weeks, women have the opportunity to explore the different trades, travel to different NSCC campuses, and get hands-on experience along the way. Women Unlimited assists with your work attire, can aid in child-care, and travel. At the end of this amazing program, if you have a decision to continue your education in a trade, Women Unlimited can help you apply to your preferred course enrolment. It is a great program and an excellent opportunity.

Did You Know...

References or Allies are people from your past employment or volunteer work that can provide a potential employer with a brief description and confirmation of your previous work qualifications and abilities. These people can be past co-workers, managers, or assistant managers. A personal reference, also known as a character reference, is a reference provided by an individual who knows you and can vouch for your character and abilities. Neighbours and acquaintances may be willing to write a reference for you. Business acquaintances, teachers, professors or academic advisors, volunteer leaders, or coaches can all provide a personal reference.

Often you can have a separate page of references and bring this with you to your interview, or you can add them onto your resume. It's important to let your references know when you will be putting their name out so that they are not surprised by calls.
