RBC Career Bridge Associate Host Program gives Canadian employers the opportunity to host high potential, internationally qualified interns to meet their employment needs.
For Bangladeshi-born Farhana Naznin, it was a bit of a shock to be asked if she had Canadian experience, especially since she had worked in Australia as a software developer. “Everywhere I applied, I was asked for Canadian experience. Just about when it was getting to the point that it was getting frustrated, I heard of the internship program at Career Edge Organization,” says Naznin, who, along with her husband, had studied in Japan and worked in Australia for three years before immigrating to Canada.
Having heard of numerous successful placements through Career Edge’s Career Bridge program, which places immigrant job seekers into paid internships, Naznin applied for a six-month long internship program sponsored by RBC.
