Please plan to attend the 2nd annual BEST conference on Saturday, March 5 in Halifax. This FREE event is for international and immigrant students in ANY NSCC program.

The BEST Conference (BEST = Branding/Employment/Skills/Training) is an opportunity for international and immigrant students to gain the skills they need to be successfully employed after graduation.

Students will have the opportunity to learn how to network effectively and present and market themselves professionally in this full-day session. We’re also thrilled to announce that Nannette Ripmeester of Expertise in Labor Mobility (http://www.labourmobility.com/) will deliver our keynote address on “The value of YOUR global experience”
