1 I was look­ing for di­rec­tion

I think like a lot of mil­len­ni­als, fig­ur­ing out what you’re go­ing to do for work was a big con­cern for me. You’re left ask­ing your­self what you’re go­ing to do. I had been in a few dif­fer­ent jobs as a hair­styl­ist and in bank­ing, but hadn’t re­ally found my thing. I de­cided I needed some­thing I could turn into a real ca­reer. I found the Govern­ment Of­fice Clerk pro­gram at Univer­sité Sainte-Anne and it seemed like a great op­tion for me.

Univer­sité Sainte-Anne put me on a path to suc­cess

The pro­gram re­ally trains you for any­thing that might pop up on the job. It pre­pared me so well for my first day, that I felt like I knew how to do ab­so­lutely every­thing. It was won­der­ful and very grat­i­fy­ing. Every­thing that we learned was ex­tremely use­ful. We stud­ied every­thing from computer lit­er­acy, to fi­nance, to the struc­ture of govern­ment. They teach how to or­ga­nize and man­age your time and pri­or­i­tize work, as well as learn­ing to write clearly for busi­ness pur­poses.

Per­sonal class en­gage­ment

The size of the classes and avail­abil­ity of the pro­fes­sors was a huge plus for me. It was very in­ter­ac­tive and we could have ac­tual en­gag­ing dis­cus­sions about the course­work. The teach­ers knew you by name and you never felt like one of many peo­ple in a class.

Be­ing bilin­gual

French is my first lan­guage, and go­ing to the Univer­sité Sainte-Anne re­ally made me re­al­ize how use­ful that is as a skill. I wanted to work in a job where I could use both lan­guages, and govern­ment po­si­tions are per­fect for that. Be­cause of this pro­gram I’ve had the op­por­tu­nity to try dif­fer­ent things, and ev­ery time I try some­thing new I learn more and it keeps me mo­ti­vated.
