About this webinar:

Many newcomers to Canada and the U.S. have high levels of education and training acquired in their home countries. Despite that, on average they are more likely to be unemployed or underemployed than people educated and trained in Canada or the U.S. Opportunities to earn additional Canadian or American credentials are essential in creating pathways to career success. If you would like to enhance your education and experience acquired abroad, join WES Global Talent Bridge for this conversation. Leading the discussion will be panelists from Ryerson University in Toronto, and Coursera, the online college course provider. Listen in as we discuss online training and education programs and how they can help you achieve your career goals.

Discussion topics:

  • Types of online education programs and providers
  • Benefits of online education
  • How online education can help you reach your goals through additional training and “stackable” credentials
