Zaib’s firm works with immigrant job candidates to develop employment and interview skills, efforts that recently earned it an Immigrant Success award from the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council. “Immigrants are often challenged to find jobs relevant to their skills,” she explains. “We believe they can make a real contribution to the Canadian economy, but if we don’t put the effort in to help them, they will become a burden on the economy or leave their professions for a less-skilled job.”
