I have a Masters in sociology and before I came to Canada I did social research and communitybased mobilization work in India and Afghanistan. When I arrived here, I needed to transition from my international development background to Canadian social services. The Chang School IESW program was a good fit and a supportive environment. We were all professionals with experience so we were encouraged to reflect on our past work and compare it to practices in Canada. Also, the program is very connected to the job market, actively liaising with potential employers. My Canadian work experience placement at the United Way played a huge role in my being hired at Evergreen.
