“I found the examples from people’s job search experience to be really helpful. When I was looking for work, I just followed their examples because the strategies gave me a structure to understand what happened. It’s not just about setting up your resume, it is about how to apply, how to follow up. I really didn’t know how to follow up until I took Work and Culture. The videos were especially helpful because I could remember them whenever a new issue came up. I think that understanding other people’s cultures was so useful. I now think “is this behaviour cultural, is it personality?” instead of judging the person. When you know how to look for the norms, you can better understand people’s motivation for how they act.
I just loved Work and Culture Online! It is so useful for people who are not familiar with the Canadian workplace norms and helps understand the job process here. Before the course I was missing cues - I didn’t know what was going on or why I didn’t get the job. Now I have a solid overview of the whole job process and I feel very confident. That confidence in knowing the process helped me find work in my field.”
