“I am Bijoy Naidu, I landed in Canada on January 27th, 2020 as a Skilled Immigrant from India. I was lucky that I could enter this country just before COVID-19 outbreak, but due to this virus it was hard for me to find a good work opportunity. As my previous work experience was in Sales and Marketing specifically in the IT Industry, I was looking for something same here in Vancouver.

I was introduced to PICS by another social service organization called MOSAIC because PICS is specialized in helping people in Sales and Marketing profiles and I was looking for something same. Soon after joining the Career Path program with PICS, I started getting immense support from my Case Manager and Employer Relation Specialists. Their goal-setting plan, job search strategy, extremely well designed online workshops, timely follow-ups and job postings helped me a lot in finding the best opportunity I could get in the start of my career in Canada, and they are still doing that.

Currently I am working in Foreseeson Technology Inc. as a Sales Specialist. The company is in the same industry in which I was working before in my Home country, and I feel very fortunate to get this kind of opportunity. I cannot thank PICS enough and the Career Paths program team for supporting me in every step of my career path. Not only have they helped me in finding a good starting career but they have also supported my morale when I was in a survival job.

Since I landed in Vancouver, I went to many job programs but I have never seen staff as supportive as they are here in PICS. I wish best for PICS and hope that the program helps many immigrants like me to achieve their dream career in Canada.”
