Success Story: Chidinma Unigwe

Her job is an extension of her identity.

“For me, a job is not just a job, it’s a reflection of who I am.”

She earned a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology in Nigeria, also learning project management skills and gaining over nine years of experience in information technology. A business intelligence and enterprise resource planning professional “determined to always exceed set goals,” she carried analytical, problem-solving, and communication skills.

Chidinma signed up for Career Edge’s paid internship program through Planning for Canada, a free pre-arrival service dedicated to helping families prepare for their new life in Canada. Planning for Canada advisor Ollie Zaydik said, “We encourage our clients to begin their Career Edge registration ahead of their landing in Canada as permanent residents.
